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!

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.

erickok (3484) - 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)

suprchunk (2160) - 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.

Christian (11052) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2010
Near black with a lasting tan head. Aroma of dried fruit, banana, spice and vineous alcohol. Sweetish and full flavour with dark dried fruits, dark sugar, nuts and a touch of licorice. Balancing hops like those bad boys at the Westvleteren monastery also use

harrisoni (13565) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle at Euston Tap thanks to Ken. Cloudy dark brown. Thick lasting beige head. Spicy hop Belgian Bit of oak or wood. Intense blackcurrant. I love the fruit and aroma but then dies a little but still close to the first Pannepot I ever had. As close to Caulier Pannepot 2005 I have had.

(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!

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2010
On tap. Surprisingly close to black with a warm reddish hue and a creamy beige head leaving laces. The nose has plenty of fat prunes and other dried fruits, brown sugar and friendly phenols. Very full-bodied with lovely dried fruit notes and also some licorice. The yeastiness is rather downplayed but lots of friendly phenols and a warming alcohol. Has a vague late tartness. My kinda beer! 180910
