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.

Nickls (1857) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 22, 2011
Tap, Plan B Aug’ 10. Deep, rich brown with a thin light tan head. Lacto-sweetness and dark fruits in the aroma, and taste very much follows suit. Bit sweet, but a sour quality as well. Little musty and some prunes. Medium body with soft carbonation. Not bad.

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.

Abio (1611) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2012
Very dark brown beer with a nice big head, holds ok. Chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, mostly sweetness, slightly bitter roasted malts and hops. Better then expected.

As always im abit skeptic tasting a non belgian abbey ale. And with good reason i think. This one is hazy dark brown with a nice dense brown head. Aroma has some ripe fruity phenols, but its pretty far from the belgian ones in that they arent as intense, complex and smooth. The fruit is backed up by a rather big amount of hard roasted malt, and oc alchohol. Flavor is sugery sweet and actually more roasted bitter than sweet, with notes of dark chocolate and liquirice. I really like the beer, but i find it very different from the belgian abt which i enjoy even more.

Thanks Hopscotch for the share, lovely label. Nose is faint traces of what should make up a good (to me) quad, raisins and brown sugar and figs, but also alcohol presence. But you have to dig for the good, and the alcohol is a bit much. The taste is a bit muddled on the palate, some ambiguous sweet flavors, and a kind of oddly dry/bitter finish. Meh.

kwik-lime (1322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Keg from the Black Heart in Camden. Alcohol surprisingly well hidden for the ABV, very smooth, coffee, chocolate, vanilla and caramel all coming through. Satisfying beer.

rand (1300) - 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.

GothGargoyle (1291) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
Very dark brown with a small pale head. Aroma of cognac, raisins and other dark fruit. Taste is quite sweet - raisins, chocolate and only the subtlest hint of bitterness in the aftertaste.
