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

brugmanneke (283) - - 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.

AaronTDubs (424) - - FEB 7, 2017
Clear, light copper colored. Has a rich rye-like aroma, dark breads, tiniest amount of fruitiness, plums, but a dry roasted aroma cuts through everything. Has a rich, malty flavor with chocolate notes, a bit fruity, more roasted than the typical sweet malty doppelbock. Has a good balance with the herbal hops. Lacks the malty depth of the best of the style and a bit drier too. Overall though, this is a damn good beer! Though I do love the style.

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
