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

Shark_Pants (724) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 17, 2014
Pours cola brown with a 1 finger head into a Weihenstephan glass. Nose is heavy caramel & malt, some overripe banana, Vegemite. As others have said, the taste is very sweet - strong toffee, toasted malts, with some hints of Vegemite, light hops and peppery notes in the finish toning down the sweetness a little. Medium bodied. Possibly a little sweet overall but still very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Moravius (1265) - Beijing, CHINA - NOV 10, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Tiefes Goldbraun. Der Antrunk ist für einen Doppelbock überraschend schlank, dunkelröstmalzig und nicht zu karamelsüß. Noten von Holz, gerösteten Nüssen, Bitterschokolade. Erdiger fränkischer Hopfen sorgt für einen ausreichend bitteren Abgang. - Ein aromatischer Doppelbock, der weder süß noch pappig und trotz des großzügigen Ethanoldepots auch nicht spritig ist.

Creedence (291) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2013
Draught at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a dark and hazy reddish brown with a thin but lasting white head and really nice lacing. Aroma is strong chocolatey butterscotch, with light berry and grassy notes. Quite complex and interesting. Taste is strong and boozy sweetness with a touch of astringent bitterness. Finish is big and malty, with even carbonation and a little bit of a prickle from the booziness. Very nice beer, would happily drink it again.

generallee08 (772) - New York, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1pt. 0.9oz swing top bottle into a mug. Appearance: The body has a deep brownish coppery color with dark reddish amber highlights. On top is a small collar of tan foam. The head slowly settles and clings to the glass as I drink. This makes for lots of cool lacing on the glass. Smell: It has a big deep aroma with tons of malt character. It has deep roasted grain with notes of burnt caramel, toasted bread and toasted nuts. The alcohol is also noticeable and adds a touch of fusel character which is a little distracting. Taste/Palate: The flavor is big and full bodied like the aroma and like the aroma it starts with a big bready and roasted grain like base. Inside of it are notes of burnt caramel, toasted bread, and some light toasted nuts. I also pick up some dusty/earthy and mildly fruity yeast as well as some old dried/leafy hop spice. This adds some light bitterness to the background. Mingling through all of this is a very noticeable fusel booziness that has a harsh edge to it. Notes: There is a lot of depth and complexity but it has its ruff edges too.
