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!

Maria (10169) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2010
It’s black with a light red hue and a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of dark fruit, hops, yeast, preserved fruits and caramel. The flavour is sweet and vinous with notes of dark fruits, prunes, raisin, plum, caramel and the finish is slightly dry. It’s a nice and complex beer.

Bov (9602) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 29, 2011
from erzbierschof.ch - pours a hazy dark brown beer with a persistent dark beige foam left; a robust aroma of biscuit, prunes and apples; moderate carbonation and a strong malt body, very sweet, no bitterness and a long aftertaste of dark fruits and toasted malts with pretty lot of residual sugars

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Bottle... Cloudy brown ale with a small, frothy, beige head. Good retention. The phenolic aroma presents vinous notes and dark fruits. Also, herbal and rooty components abound. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The flavor is sweet and tangy; vinous and herbal. Lengthy brown sugar and cocoa finish. Kudos to Plovmand for providing the bottle!

Benzai (8530) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle I bought at De Molen, shared with DutchDrebus. Brown color, ok smell and good taste. Also good carbo and medium to full body, alcohol not strongly present even though the beer is 10%ABV.

JorisPPattyn (7970) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2011
Small, receding, slighly irregular beige head over deep-brown to black beer. Very perfumey nose with marzipan, bubblegum, rosewater, suggesting perfumey sweet. Fruity esters and dark malts. Very sharp-bitter liquorice and drop - even salt one. Some fruity background notes, fruitdrops, but all drowned in the bitter liquorice flavour. Bitter chocolate retronasal. Well bodied, slick to viscous, alcoholwarming. Just a taste I abhorr, sorry.

Skinnyviking (7129) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2010
Bottle. High creamy lasting light brown head. Pitch black body. Sweet coffee honey caramel aroma. Mildly hopped sweet roasted malt flavor with low carbonation and a long sweet aftertaste. Alcohol well hidden.

Hansen (6768) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2011
Dark, dark brown. Has an off-white head, mostly lasting. Sweet aroma, notes of dark, dried fruits and malt. Flavor is heavy sweet, more dark bread, fruit, grain, faint roasted. Syrupy texture. Soft carbonation.

mcberko (6692) - 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.

Plovmand (6514) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle. It pours an opaque dark brown with a creamy light tan head. The aroma is loads of sweet caramel, sweet ripe fruit, dates, raisins, light alcohol and dark fruit. The flavour is dark sweet ripe fruit and loads of caramel. Some alcohol in the finish. Nice but heavy stuff.

lusikka (6340) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 26, 2011
Bottle @ Ølfestival København 2011.
Pours a dark brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet dried fruits, caramel and some hay. Flavour of sweet dried fruits, grass, caramel and some mild spicy notes. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a dry, fruity, slightly spicy finish. Good.
