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 (6177) - 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.)

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2010
(Draught at Ölbaren, Copenhagen, 17 June 2010) Dark brown colour, almost black, with creamy beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of dried fruit, raisins, prunes and dark bread. Malty, fruity taste with dark bread, roasted malt, raisins, prunes, dried fruit, brown sugar and a spicy , herbal bitterness in the finish. Full body, smooth and rounded moutfeel. Fairly sweet with a whiff of warming alcohol. Rather heavy beer in excelllent balance, which makes it very drinkable. Lovely beer!

Glouglouburp (5998) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
In short: A super sweet 15% burgundy fruity beer. Relatively easy to drink monster, excellent for what it is
How: Bottle 50cl, consumed relatively fresh, almost 4 years before expiration date
The look: Cloudy dark burgundy body topped by a small beige head
In long: Uber-rich toffee and dark fruits nose, this beer smells like a million calories. Also present in the aroma were some less pleasant paper notes. Taste is caramel, toffee, dried dark color fruits, figs, bubblegum. There is also a liquorice flavor but not like typical beer liquorice flavor, actually the liquorice flavor was like a liquorice alcohol such as Sambucca or something like that. What’s surprising about this beer is that is doesn’t taste as sweet as expected. It’s still sweet but there’s something about the tobacco-ish hops and paper off-flavor that seem to suck away the sweetness. Anyway I thought it was actually quite easy to drink for a 15% monster of a beer. Certainly not a great Abt (this is far from a classic abbey style Abt) but as a big fruity sipper I thought this was excellent. I’m usually not a fan a big monster beer but I can sometimes stray away and indulge in such a beer, I’m sure that even the cute Tony the Tiger occasionally puts the Frosted Flakes aside and rips apart a gazelle for dinner.

ekstedt (5401) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2010
Bottle (50 cl) from Bierkompass.de. I love the label of this beer. Otherwise, it was not that exciting. Weak belgian character, some malitiness with a roasted touch. Dry with boring salty bitterness.
