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

Hazy copper brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, yeasty, crusty bread, brown sugar, and some planty, herbal hops. Flavor is caramel, toffee, butterscotch, light sweet corn, toast, doughy yeast, autolyzed yeast, bread crust, caramelized brown sugar, light earthy, planty hops and dull, spicy hops to the finish. Medium body, slightly chalky, creamy and chewy feel and moderate carbonation. Its a strange Doppelbock with tons of yeast character, but I liked it.

Bottle. Tawny and clear with a small head. Lovely slightly sweet flavour.So easy to drink considering its strength. An excellent example of this style that shows that in this age of wonderful craft beers Germany can still produce a good one like this. Highly recommended.

Maris (1321) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2016
From a 500ml bottle on 18/4/2016. Pours a dark amber with a small to medium head. The nose is rye bread, dark fruit and brown sugar. Take a sip and it’s super sweet - caramel, dates, raisins, plums, brown sugar and treacle, along with more rye bread and some light spice. There’s bugger all bitterness to be found - it could almost pass as sauce for fruit cake. The texture is thick and surupy, the carbonation quite soft. A very nice, very malty dessert like brew.

leaparsons (9544) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2016
Bottle, The Offie, Leicester. Brown with a thin head. Toffee with brown sugar and oily butter. Raisins with plummy notes. Peppery alcohol with hints of vegetable. Bready yeast with leafy, papery notes. Some Euro lager notes but decent nonetheless.
