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!

larsga (6139) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2011
Smallish brown head. Just barely translucent clear deep dark red body with light carbonation. Fruity toffeeish soy sauce aroma with bubblegum, chocolate and alcohol notes. Dry-sweetish fruity toffeeish bubblegum taste with soy sauce notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, slightly hot mouthfeel. Dry herbal licorice and chocolate aftertaste with soy sauce and fruity bubblegum notes. Decent, but not very interesting. (0.5l bottle, Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle. It’s a clear, dark reddish brown beer with a very small head. Dried fruits like prunes and raisins on the nose, some alcohol and roasted malts as well. The alcohol barely detectable. The aroma has some bitterness and coffee hints to support the dried fruits and warming alcohol, it’s smooth, full-bodied and warming, finishing with a little too less flavor but sufficient warmth. A really nice one, but it lacks a bit on complexity. 110513
