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!

Papsoe (25073) - 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

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
In short: A super sweet 15% burgundy fruity beer. Relatively easy to drink monster, excellent for what it is
How: Bottle 50cl, consumed relatively fresh, almost 4 years before expiration date
The look: Cloudy dark burgundy body topped by a small beige head
In long: Uber-rich toffee and dark fruits nose, this beer smells like a million calories. Also present in the aroma were some less pleasant paper notes. Taste is caramel, toffee, dried dark color fruits, figs, bubblegum. There is also a liquorice flavor but not like typical beer liquorice flavor, actually the liquorice flavor was like a liquorice alcohol such as Sambucca or something like that. What’s surprising about this beer is that is doesn’t taste as sweet as expected. It’s still sweet but there’s something about the tobacco-ish hops and paper off-flavor that seem to suck away the sweetness. Anyway I thought it was actually quite easy to drink for a 15% monster of a beer. Certainly not a great Abt (this is far from a classic abbey style Abt) but as a big fruity sipper I thought this was excellent. I’m usually not a fan a big monster beer but I can sometimes stray away and indulge in such a beer, I’m sure that even the cute Tony the Tiger occasionally puts the Frosted Flakes aside and rips apart a gazelle for dinner.

Very dark brown with a small pale head. Aroma of cognac, raisins and other dark fruit. Taste is quite sweet - raisins, chocolate and only the subtlest hint of bitterness in the aftertaste.
