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

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.

I god damn love this beer. Big brown biscuit bomb. All elements are great, flavour particularly. A go-to for me now

BeerandBlues2 (13210) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Tap at Max’s. Pours clear tawny with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is toast, caramel, and nutty malt with dark fruits. Flavor is malt dominant, a clean lager character and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

AirForceHops (7140) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 2, 2013
500 ml, swing top bottle from Hunger Mountain CO-OP. Deep amber color with tiny white head. Light lace. Nose is raisins dipped in caramel malt. Flavor is figs, maybe dates and bread malt. Plum hints. A mild booziness that is not harsh. Medium in body with a syrupy texture. Nice brew and worth a buy if you want a classic example of the style.

500 ml bottle. Brown/amber pour with tan creamy head. The aroma is clove and bread. The taste is rich caramel up front , a hint of butter scotch with nice malty/sweet finish. Yum.

Chudwick (3181) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - JUL 28, 2013
500ml bottle - pours amber with tan head. Nose is caramel. Flavor adds bread and a little spice. Fairly dry finish. Sweet but not too sweet. A good brew.

reebtogi (6240) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and grass with some dark fruits. Taste is a caramel malty and raisin sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Body is medium with light carbonation. A decent doppelbock, but lacking in complexity with other doppelbocks.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2013
A - Pours a clear garnet with tan head. S - Toasted brown bread, toasted brown sugar, vanilla. T - Follows the nose - Brown bread crust, woody grain, caramel, light but earthy bitterness, some berry fruit underneath. Bready and nutty on the finish. M - Low carbonation, thin medium body. All good except for the mouthfeel was a little off. I would drink this again but wouldn’t go out of my way to find it. Serving type: bottle 12-18-2011
