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!

Ungstrup (29370) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2010
Draft. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of over ripe fruits, roasted malt, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, prunes, over ripe fruits, and alcohol, leading to a dry finish.

ClubGonzo (4056) - 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. :-)

14th December 2010. At the Euston Tap with Harrisoni. Incredible label on this beer - made me gasp and laugh out loud. Very controversial but I like it’s subversive attitude towards the Monks! Anyway the beer - Clear dark brown beer, no head. Softish dry palate. Sweetish Belgian Strong style beer. Coca Cola and some fruit and bubblegum sweetness. Dry finish with a sublte pinch of spice. Not bad but not my favourite Beer Here beer!

hopscotch (9171) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Bottle... Cloudy brown ale with a small, frothy, beige head. Good retention. The phenolic aroma presents vinous notes and dark fruits. Also, herbal and rooty components abound. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The flavor is sweet and tangy; vinous and herbal. Lengthy brown sugar and cocoa finish. Kudos to Plovmand for providing the bottle!
