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!

Marko (3797) - 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.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - DEC 30, 2010
Bottle, 50cl. Pours a clear and dark brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is malt, sweetness, raisin, fruit and yeast. The flavor is malt, sweetness, raisin, nut, fruit and yeast. The palate is sweetness and some alcoholwarmth. Overall a good beer with a good balance.

ClubGonzo (3526) - 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. :-)

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.

erickok (3196) - 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)

Palme (3015) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2011
Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2011 from a 0.5l bottle. Pours a dark brown body with a thin fading beige head. Sweet aroma with some licorice, dried fruits, some chocolate and it’s quite hopy. Lively carbonated, has an fizzing mouthfeeling and medium-bodied. Light sweet flavors, some brown sugar and more dried fruits. Ends with a mild alcohol finish and a pepperish aftertaste.

Embrouille (2806) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 24, 2011
Bottled 50cl. Buttery aroma which is reminiscent of dried fruit, plums, banana and candy sugar. Full bodied. Buttery taste too. I was quite dissapointed by this Abt.
