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!

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2011
0.5L bottle brought home from ØlKonsortiet, Aalborg. A finger of latte head, quickly shrinking to a ring of tiny bubbles. Body is the darkest brown with a reddish hue. Initial aroma of alcohol-soaked roasted nuts. Feels quite unrefined and solventy on the nose, actually. Hints of brown sugar and peppery dark malts. Taste is sweet malty, bordering on harsh. Moderately roasted with a sourish tone. Notes of wood and licorice. Alcohol is noticable. Mid-bodied. Sharp, light astringent mouthfeel. Sourish and peppery malt finish. Goes well down, but a bit edgy and unrefined. Will probably improve with cellaring.

reebtogi (4614) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 21, 2013
500ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a generous light beige head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark pitted fruits with some candied sugar and hints of yeast and chocolate. Taste is a fruit and chocolate malt sweetness with a herbal hop bitterness and a dry finish. Definite presence of alcohol. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Tasty but not overly complex for a quad. Good enough to sample.

Love the bottle art. As soon as i saw it, i just had to try it. Very nice beer also. It’s not really unique, but it is balanced.

tiong (4565) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 30, 2015
500ml bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen

Pours dark reddish brown with a foamy white head. Aroma of berries, syrup, ripe fruits, plums, hints of raisins. Taste is sweet, malty and syrupy with loads of berries, some ripe fruits, plums and hints of raisins. Finish is sweetish, malty and caramely with some ripe fruits, plums and berries. Unbalanced and stuffy.

ClubGonzo (4551) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2010
Bottle from Høkeren, Copenhagen. The body of this sinner’s beer is deep and murky brown, corresponding perfectly to a sinful soul. The aroma gives of dark malts, hints of licorice and raisins, but comes across as a tad bit faint all in all. Taste is however much more solid - a staple quad: dark malts, raisins, figs and dark candy sugars. Well-made but not outstanding in the genre, Malus Pater scores mostly (in my book) on the fantastically burlesque and humorous label, depicting some malevolent priest engaged in "extracurricular activities" with what appears to be a perhaps an altar boy. Wielding a beer from Beer Here in his hand, of course. Was this brew meant as a comment to the recent unraveling of sexual misconduct in the Catholic Church? Perhaps. I liked it, anyhow. :-)

Marko (4208) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 18, 2010
Draught at Lord Nelson, courtesy of and shared with Papsoe (thanks!), Blackish colour, tanish head... the light here really isn’t brilliant for rating appearance. Sweet malty fruity nose, figs, sticky but in a good way, some grain, maybe weak honey. Nice balanced sweet malty taste, rosehip jam notes, the alcohol isn’t there much in the taste but this is certainly warming. Not the type of beer I’d immediately call my favorite, but it really is a sublime thing that grows on you.

erickok (4135) - 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)
