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!

ALLOVATE (2336) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2014
Muddy, murky brown. Headless, oily legs. Heavy set savoury fruit nose. Yeasty, bready, burnt toast and vinous, thick, liqueurish stone fruit with just a hint of spice. Soapy, light body. Remarkably light. Sticky, bitter/sweet raisin and sultana finish. Pleasant but bland.

BeerViking (2293) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle from Denmark, pours a deep, nearly flat brown with light sour plum notes plus pear drops and toffee on the nose. Palate has a slight tartness, plus treacle, forest berries, a dry bitterness, a touch of earthy wood, and a little spice and coffee. The mouthfeel is interestingly syrupy-sweet yet dry-bitter. Really doesn’t drink its strength, until you start to notice the warmth spreading to your head!

Holmen1 (2275) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2014
Dette er snop, sier dr Melberg denne fine maikvelden på Mandag i annen. Og den er sannelig lett å helle innpå, farlig lett for omdreiningshastigheten. Vi skåler for en tam dag på jobben i morgen!

VertBaconStrips (2060) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
Decent flavour, zero hints of the 10%. Mild peppermint candy nose, roasted malts on the sweet side nose, raisins nose, blueberries nose, plum nose, dark caramel nose has taken over the previously claimed roasted malt nose, nose, fresh nose, good nose. Digging this taste - smooth taste and slightly oily taste, sweet dark caramel taste, brown sugar taste, plum taste and date taste, bitter harshness taste after I dumped in the sludge taste, taste, sort of chocolate taste or whatever taste that taste is that I am tasting taste. Radical, dude. Fucking iPhone keeps spell checking ’taste’ as ’Tate’ and every time it reminds me of former American coffee heiress Sharon Tate. Insert whatever here.

suprchunk (2029) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Almost black colored pour. Large tan head that slowly falls away. Plenty of lacing left behind. Chocolate, raisin, and sugar aroma. Slight bit of earthy yeastiness as well. Taste is awesome. Big raisin, prune, some chocolate and vanilla. Sweet, almost barleywine like. Hint of alcohol, but it is really well hidden. This is way better than I thought it would be.

Bottle 500ml from the local taphouse shop. Great malty beer. Aromas of caramel, cookies, and bread. Taste is sweet, with light sourness, and very long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2011
Pours dark brown with a small head. Nose shows caramelised banana, chocolate, soft alcohol, rose-like perfume and raisins. Pretty full on. Lots of alcohol shows upon tasting, along with heads of sweet brown sugar and golden syrup. Long lasting finish with plenty of candi sugar. Not amazingly complex for the style. Moderately low carbonation could be higher.
