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!

maneliquor (3004) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a gluggy black with a small tan head. Loads of chocolate and belgian yeast on the nose. Heaps of chocolate cocoa and fudge like characteristics in this one. Has a very liquorice like finish. Good beer

Ferris (2989) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle - Dark sugars and dark fruit. Dark brown, almost opaque with no head. Dark fruits and some slight bitterness. A bit medicinal and boozey but still pretty decent.

jesperhammer (2835) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2011
13-JUN-2011, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer". Pours almost black with lasting very fine light brown head. Nose is yeasty spicey with, brown sugar, cinamon, and coffee. Taste is brown sugar, coffee and alcohol Very smooth and creamy but a tad too sweet. Fine effort. Better than many belgians.

Embrouille (2819) - 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.

pintbypint (2549) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Rating #2300. 500ml brown bottle. Deep brown, rapidly receding tan head. Nose has fruit notes of raisin, cherry also some caramel, cola and chocolate malt. Taste has dark fruit and dark chocolate. Some roast/dark malt and hop bitterness at the end. Light hops in the aftertaste, bit of smooth alcohol and dark fruits. Big body. A well put together quad that drinks easily for it’s strength.

Habanero (2470) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2011
Bottled. Pours deep brownand nearly black with a red glow and a medium sized, creamy, beige head. Fair lacings. Nose of dark dried fruits, brown sugar and yeasty notes. Flavour of dark dried fruits, brown sugar and licorice notes. Averge carbonation. Full bodied. Creamy texture. Ends up more dry with an alcohol touch too. Great and very simular to a real Belgian quadrupel.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2010
Fad: Brun uklar øl med et tæt skumhoved. Duft af tørrede frugt og blomster fra duft. Mundfylden er udmærket med let karbonation. Lidt ung i sit udtryk, men meget drikbar. Alkoholen er fuldstændig skjult, gæren er ikke så dominerende. Fin øl men mangler en lille smule for at være helt oppe at ringe.

hawthorne00 (2363) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2012
Dubiously satirical bottle. Pretty much black with a light tan head that lasts. Quite surprising. Aroma of soy sauce, treacle, raisins, figs, prunes. Syrupy mouthfeel with low carbonation. Sweet, bitter and salty, with dried fruits, singed toffee, spices, quite a lot of bitterness. Soy sauce less prominent than the first whiff suggested. Obviously strong, but not much heat from the alcohol - just a little with some sweet shop spices at the end. Not much like strong dark Belgian beers and kind of crude, but compelling.
