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

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.

Swing-top at Schmitz. Cloudy dark brown with a short beige head. Beautiful Munich-malty nose with plenty of cherry and grape, just classic DB. In the mouth it’s the same, medium sweetness over light bitterness. Loads of deep Munich, brown sugar character, slight dark bread, medium-full body, not showing much alcohol. Full malty body and a great treat (though I may be feeling generous with the score).

Foerdifuxx (62) - 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!
