COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: I trappist-munkeklostrene bryggede man under fasten ekstra stærk og god ale for at holde sulten stangen. De liflige dråber på tom mave kombineret med den megen lediggang førte af og til at mindre standhaftige medlemmer af ordenen hengav sig til mere jordiske excesser. Disse gik under betegnelsen “Malus Pater” - den dårlige fader. Med denne trappistinspirerede ale har du nu selv muligheden for at give dig tilsvarende hen. Og husk: Gud ser alt, men han sladrer ikke!

English: In the Trappist monasteries an extra strong and good ale was brewed during the lent to keep the hunger at bar. The sweet drops on an empty stomach, combined with the much idle time occasionally led to less steadfast members of the order giving in to more earthly excesses. They went under the name "Malus Pater" - the bad father. With this ale inspired by the trappists you can now even do the same. And remember: God sees everything, but he doesn’t tell!

Bottle 500ml from the local taphouse shop. Great malty beer. Aromas of caramel, cookies, and bread. Taste is sweet, with light sourness, and very long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.

Pours dark as Coke with a small tanned head.Aroma of deep red fruits, caramel. Taste is deep malty, spicy and some wood. Lingering malty aftertaste, with some liquorice and herbs. Full bodied, nice

hawthorne00 (2401) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2012
Dubiously satirical bottle. Pretty much black with a light tan head that lasts. Quite surprising. Aroma of soy sauce, treacle, raisins, figs, prunes. Syrupy mouthfeel with low carbonation. Sweet, bitter and salty, with dried fruits, singed toffee, spices, quite a lot of bitterness. Soy sauce less prominent than the first whiff suggested. Obviously strong, but not much heat from the alcohol - just a little with some sweet shop spices at the end. Not much like strong dark Belgian beers and kind of crude, but compelling.

Ober (2809) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2012
A dark brown, almost black colored beer, with a thick foamy dark beige head. The aroma of zoet dark fruits with notes of chocolate malt with hint of spices. The taste is sweet, dark fruits, chocolate malt, a little spicy with notes of alcohol.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2012
Good solid old skool interpretation. Spice and stinky soy / vegemite drive the flavours. There’s a little milk chocolate and minerals to finish. Hides the 10% abv very well and this is quite quaffable for a quad.

mcberko (6272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2012
500mL bottle, brought back from the UK by Matts_Property, pours a deep dark amber brown with a small-to-medium tan head. Aroma of caramel malts, brown sugar, candied sugar, some dried fruits and toasted bread. Flavour of Belgian yeast, toasted bread, sweet caramelized malts, a bit of the dried fruits and an alcohol burn. The flavours sort of become muted toward the end, leaving a dry toasted bread and semi-sweet finish. Not very complex for a quad. Decent, but lacking and seemingly uninspired.

rand (1280) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle 59 cl from erzbierschof.ch. Brown very dark, brownish and rough foam bad looking. Nose of caramel, molasses, alcohol. Very sweetened taste, round and syrupy, chocolate, dry fruits, madeira, liquor-like and doped with candy. Too much residual sugars, limit of the sickness. Beer without class, just like the label. Grave et sine praestantia cervesia.

erickok (3491) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 19, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2012 Deep black body with creamy tan head. Apple juice, maple syrup, fennel, cloves, dark caramel, some smoke, honey cereal and rye bread. Lots going on and lots of good stuff, luckily. Super rich taste, light burned at first, with a sweet, raisin-y sweetness in the middle and a long, developed aftertaste. Good amount of warming alcohol and an oily texture that leaves a film of goodness. This can totally compete with the classic Belgians with their long history. The well-carbonated palate and velvety, fruity sweetness make this a world class brew. Clearly a knowledgeable and focused brewer at work. There, a Malus Pater review without mentioning the church once. Ah... damn. (50cl bottle, 7,20 EUR, unfortunately) (Rating re-indexed)

suprchunk (2168) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Almost black colored pour. Large tan head that slowly falls away. Plenty of lacing left behind. Chocolate, raisin, and sugar aroma. Slight bit of earthy yeastiness as well. Taste is awesome. Big raisin, prune, some chocolate and vanilla. Sweet, almost barleywine like. Hint of alcohol, but it is really well hidden. This is way better than I thought it would be.
