COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Hazy copper brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, yeasty, crusty bread, brown sugar, and some planty, herbal hops. Flavor is caramel, toffee, butterscotch, light sweet corn, toast, doughy yeast, autolyzed yeast, bread crust, caramelized brown sugar, light earthy, planty hops and dull, spicy hops to the finish. Medium body, slightly chalky, creamy and chewy feel and moderate carbonation. Its a strange Doppelbock with tons of yeast character, but I liked it.

WhatDaddy (88) - Volos, GREECE - NOV 6, 2016
0.5lt bottle @ Valentin - Curious Bierkneipe, Volos Greece That’s a doppelbock the way I like it. Medium to full body, a bit roasty caramel with nutty notes, full of taste. Aroma is low, sweet/toasty, that could be better. The 8,2% ABV are well hidden but you get full flavor. ENJOY

Scopey (13311) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2016
Bottle at The Pot Still. It pours clear deep brown with a small off-white head. The aroma is rich malty action, bitter - sweet, brown bread, toasty brown sugars, treacle and fruit cake. The taste is bitter - sweet, brown bread, fruit loaf, raisin, sultana, plum, wood and sticky toffee pudding with a soft finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Hides the alcohol very well. Good balance and high drinkability.

Ritzn (758) - Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2016
Clear copper with medium beige head. Aroma is clove, dried figs, phenols, not alcoholic, caramel. Taste is caramel sweetness, some carbonation induced sourness. Finish contains alcohol, full body. Rather too much fine bubbles but still not aggressively carbonated. Good one.

ciocanelu (1728) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 14, 2016
Clear amber color with off-white head. Aroma has some sweet, toasted malt and a hint of alcohol. Taste starts with toasted malt, slightly spicy and boozy. Body is on the lighter side and has medium carbonation. I don’t really like this one. It’s quite boozy and also has a stale grain / rotten fruit flavor.
