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

Strong aroma of bread with the appearance being lava red. Not an over the top doppelbock, very good in every way.

Flasche 50cl. Glanzfein filtriert. Laut Etikett 8.2 % alc. Heftig, dachte ich. Aber: Wunderbar leichtfüßiger, süffiger Doppelbock mit komplexer, saftiger Malznote. Nicht süß, nicht brenzlig, nicht bitter. Die Hopfung ist perfekt abgestimmt. Sicher eines der besten dunklen Doppelbockbiere der Welt, braucht sich nicht hinter Andechs, Weltenburg und Ayinger zu verstecken.

031216. This bottle was a surprise find in the fridge at Newstead Brewing. Great beer with a big strong boost finish. Deep amber colour with a malty flavour.

Aroma: caramel, hint of banana App: clear amber, tan head, sudsy lacing Flavour: big toffee sweetness balanced by a good hop profile Palate: long toffee malt and hop finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the Huber Haus. Pours a bright clear amber red with a very thick and durable off white head. The aroma is seriously dead-on for a double decoction brew. This is a deep malty caramel toffee scent that is simply outstanding. The flavor is delicious as well. This beer has a nutty sweetness that provides a rich and thick mouth feel. Too bad that this came from a 30L keg and was gone within 2 hours!

translucent dark mahogany with a creamy beige head. medium-full body with medium-high carbonation.

aroma: rich and bready, lots of kilned malt, herbal hops, fruity alcohol. caramel and butterscotch as it warms.

taste: dark bread crust, stoney minerality, melanoidin reaction compounds, grassy hop bitterness, tannins, faint caramel and dark fruit.

GoufCustom (1979) - HONG KONG - JUN 14, 2014

500 ml bottle bought at foodGARDEN in D2 Place, Lai Chi Kok.

Looks: Clear dark copper amber colour; Three-quarter finger head and light beige foam which fades in 30 seconds; Small sticky lacing with active carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant sweet full malt, with strong caramel, strong toffee, brown sugar, light coffee, light musty, alcohol and faint grass.

Taste: Strong and savory sweet malt, with strong caramel, toffee, strong molasses, hint of alcohol, sweet bread, yeast, faint lemon and shades of bitter grassy hops.

Body: Full body. Dry, rich and slightly creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Very rich dark malt in thick body. Maltyness is harmonious with very expressive caramel and light toffee characters. Sweetness is strong but natural and tasty, and blended well with the smooth but hidden 8.2% booze. Loads of sweet bread, what a beauty!

Hoppiness: Faint grass nose, thin lemon and faint grassy taste. Bitterness is faint in background, match well with malty sweetness for a flickering low finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Very easy rich to mouth.

Comments: This is a bona fide Doppelbock, one of those authentic and historic German monastic brews that give the style such fine reputation - rich maltyness, strong tasty sweetness (how often do you say that to a beer?), nice caramel and toffee aroma and taste with a dash of coffee for good measure, well-hidden and tasty booze. Every aspect is in the right balance, this is what a nice Doppelbock is about. Highly Recommended!
