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

Derek881 (1269) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Poured this beer from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a muddy brown and dirty color with noticeable sediment, a dark amber hue, and a foamy off-white head with average retention and cling, and good lacing. It had a rich earthy malt aroma with touches of banana and light dark fruits, along with some yeast and grain. It had a bitter-sour flavor with a light grainy-earthy blend and some touches of caramel malt and very light yeast and fruit. The beer was very light and creamy with a wet body, low carbonation, and a lighter, thinner mouthfeel.

brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - DEC 17, 2012
(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.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2012
#626 Dunkelbraun mit relativ wenig Schaum. In der Nase vorwiegend malzig. Der Antrunk ist durch den Alkohol leicht bissig-würzig. Geschmacklich ausschließlich malzig und leider auch nicht komplex geraten. Gegen Ende kommt etwas Würze auf. Zum lecker Braten durchaus trinkbar; für sich allein eher ein dumpfer Bock ohne echten Tiefgang. Test vom 26.12.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,9,9,9,12,9 - 9,25

500ml bottle @ Nick’s Swiss Restaurant, Yungaburra. Pours reddish-brown with a small off white head that lingers. Aromas of fruitcake, cherries, caramel and sugar with a hint of spiciness. Rich full mouthfeel with sweet flavours and alcoholic wamth. Some spicy hop presence at the end. Enjoyed this.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Aroma of musty grains, nuts and whatnot. Murky brownish tan. Heavy toffee and coffee malt tastes collide to start, bitter at the back end. Sticky and sludgy like syrup. Extra malty doppel with decent chops.
