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

(50 cl bottle) chestnut-coloured, hazy, with a beige head. Aroma is heavily malty, loads of dark bread, dried fruits/raisins, sherry, roasted. Taste is sweet. Chewy and sticky. Slightly burning finish. Not something I would want to drink often or in large quantities, but well-made.

Foerdifuxx (37) - 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!

ElDesmadre (2279) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle, traded with McTapps and MichaelAwesome, thanks! Toast, caramel, nuts and dried fruit in the aroma. Not really sweet for the style, balanced. A bit too well attenuated, hence somewhat lacking in terms of body. On the other hand - given its parameters, it’s impressive how they managed to hide the alcohol. Easy drinkable, with additional notes of chocolate and marzipan in the flavour. Tasty.
