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 fasting - fasting was the rule at the times of the Benedictine monks in Weissenohe. This we now owe the mirror carp than fast food and the strong Doppelbock as liquid food in this barren time. We have for you, in this tradition, our strong brewed Bonator as dark Doppelbock, physical and spiritual strengthening in the "Staaden" time. Double Bock, a dark, spicy and strong as is the tradition requires. Suitable for: goulash, Schäuferle, Krustenbraten, hearty snacks and powerful game dishes

Strong aroma of bread with the appearance being lava red. Not an over the top doppelbock, very good in every way.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 27, 2009
On tap at the Huber Haus. Pours a bright clear amber red with a very thick and durable off white head. The aroma is seriously dead-on for a double decoction brew. This is a deep malty caramel toffee scent that is simply outstanding. The flavor is delicious as well. This beer has a nutty sweetness that provides a rich and thick mouth feel. Too bad that this came from a 30L keg and was gone within 2 hours!

Bottled@Fonefan. Reddish amber colour, small white head. Aroma is alcohol, fruits, amlts and quite sweet overall. Flavour is much the same along with raisins and plum. Very wellbalanced and also quite easy to drink 8.2%.

Amber color, with hints of ruby, rather clear with low viscosity. Thin, tan colored foam with low carbonation. Malts dominate aroma, along with hints of brown sugar. Balanced taste profile with foretongue dominance, a smooth mouthfeel, and a pleasant, clean aftertaste. Alcohol nearly undetectable.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear warm amber with an off-white head. Aroma of burned caramel and pumpernickel. Solid body, lots of roasted malt, burned caramel, pumpernickel and pleasantly oxidized. Warming alcohol in the finish. An excellent Bock. 110110

tnkw01 (956) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Bottle. Man this is a great beer. Taste is like a nutty, malt treat with slight hop undertones. Color is a beautiful amber like the soon at the end of a hot, humid day. Aroma, malty with a great balance. Just good stuff.

Lederhosen, side one of Kraftwerk’s Autobahn and subtle attempts at humour. Respect for the brewers.

The orange stripe across the label, not present on the label of the other beers of this brewery, shows it’s something special. Dark brown and clear, smallish head, some of it is durable. Deep malty smell but also hinting at the higher alcohol percentage. Starts out rather sweet, heavily malty, coffee, chocolate, slightly roasty. Very deep and complex malt aroma, nice. Only soft carbonation but not as flat as I’m used to from other Doppelbocks. Still malty in the finish. Alcohol is not very present. Very enjoyable Doppelbock.

pivnizub (8585) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle: Clear, amber, stable off-white lacy head; solid caramelly, slightly toasty nose with a fruity and hoppy background; solid sweet-bitter flavour; soft and silky MF, medium to full bodied; a faint bitter-chocolatey touch and a tinge of hops in the robust sweetish-caramelly finish. A very pleasant, well balanced, moreish Doppelbock........
