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 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

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle. Fairly clear coppery red pour with a creamy beige head that quickly shrinks to surface cover. Sweet malty nose has notes of toffee, dates, chocolate, nuts and raisins. Flavour is pretty similar, a little more roasty and the fruitiness takes a backseat to the nutty malt overtones. Alcohol is well hidden but the sweetness becomes a bit overbearing. Medium to light bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a lingering roasty, sweet finish. Rather simplistic overall and somewhat unbalanced in favour of malty sweetness. Drinkable but not the best example of this style.

fezzy (93) - California, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Great thick, bready nose on this cloudy ruby red-brown brew. Some of the breadiness gets lost on fairly strong spicing and bock yeast notes on the palate. A warm raisiney fruitiness lingers as the brew warms. A well-done basic doppelbock.

PapaSkeetSkeet (982) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Hazy light brown with 2 mm of fine dusty tan head that fades at a moderate-to-quick rate. Aroma is lot’s of medium-darkness caramel with a light sap and hint of earth. Bread, raisin. Body is medium, oily, fine and light carbonation with little burn. Flavor is caramel, some grass and sap, oat cookie, light bitterness. A decent doppelbock. No complaints, maybe not up to par with the exceptional melanoidin component of the Korbinian, but a notch below with now flaws.
