COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flüssiges bricht Fasten nicht – war eine Fastenregel zu den Zeiten der Benediktinermönche in Weissenohe. Dieser verdanken wir heutzutage den Spiegelkarpfen als Fastenspeise und den kräftigen Doppelbock als flüssige Nahrung in dieser kargen Zeit. Wir haben für Sie, in dieser Tradition, unseren kräftigen Bonator als dunklen Doppelbock eingebraut, zur körperlichen und geistigen Stärkung in der „staaden“ Zeit. Ein dunkler Doppelbock, würzig und kräftig wie es die Tradition verlangt. Passend zu : Gulasch, Schäuferle, Krustenbraten, deftigen Brotzeiten und kräftigen Wildgerichten

Liquid does not break the Fast - was a rule of fasting at the times of the Benedictine monks in Weissenohe. For this, now we owe the Mirror Carp as Fasting food and the strong Doppelbock for liquid intake during this barren time. In this tradition, we have brewed for you our strong Bonator the dark Doppelbock, physically and spiritually strengthening during the "staaden" time. A dark Doppelbock, spicy and strong as the tradition requires. Suitable for: goulash, pork shoulder, roasted meat, hearty snacks and strong game dishes

tap at Dash In - Pours dark amber with a light tan head. It has a rich caramel malt aroma with a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is similar with the caramel in the forefront and the dark fruit accents. It’s very sweet and almost syrupy. I know the style is sweet but even for that this one seemed sweeter than most. Pretty good anyway.

Foerdifuxx (49) - Franconia, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2015
Pours a clear dark ruby-red colour (cherrywood) with a small off-white, not very long lasting head. Aromas of roasted malt, grain, alcohol and nice sweet fruits (cherry). Flavours of herbal hops, nice toast and caramel. Keeps his fruitiness. Well balanced sweet and bitter finish. Actually very drinkable, suprisingly light body for a 8% beer. soft carbonation. Good one!
