COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Trappe Isid’or was specially brewed to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Beerbrewery de Koningshoeven and was named after Brother Isidorus, the first brewer of the O.L.V. Koningshoeven Abbey. The first brew of this ceremonial beer was aged in oak barrels. This aging ensures the balanced and rich taste of this unique, exclusive Isid’or Oak Aged.

Pours clear, dark amber. small white head. Smell is bit oxidized. Taste is oxidized, but not too bad. Got some oak notes left. some walnutty flavor. As typical for aged beers, this one feels light in the mouth, but releases a wide range of subtile aroma’s. sweet malts, but also some metallic tones ( in a good way ) as well as some dark fruityness. I think I might have enjoyed it less when fresh, knowing the la trappe beers, but i do enjoy this one as it is now.

Ik heb deze nou een paar keer geprobeert maar het bier kan me niet bekoren. Wel mooie kleur en schuimlaag. Mooi aroma maar smaak en afdronk zijn minder.

Reminds me of wine. It’s deep and flavorful. Has a malty sweetness to it. Pretty alright.

Purchased at La Trappe, a few years ago. Clear amber colored beer with almost no white head. Smells of brandy. Tastes like also brandy, caramel, wood and dry fruit. Aftertaste is some light warming alcohol.

Bottle bought at La Trappe years ago, small sample, served in a taster glass. Slight hazy amber color, short head. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, vanilla, slight oak wood, slight fruity. Soft sweet taste, caramel. Holds up remarkably well after a couple of years still. I had this one fresh before, and it was almost as good. Oak aging works great with the soft sweet base beer without making it too thin. Great example of how oak aging can improve a beer.

Caramel yeast aroma. Full bodied with distinguished lasting head and excellent lacing. Initially sweet with a distinguished earthy finish and quickly evaporating aftertaste.

Better than the regular version, though I had them months apart. dry and yeasty, flavor of pitted dark fruits works really well here...

Bright clear red - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry with fine carbonation. Light dry creamy malt, whisper of caramel. Mild dried fruits. Light bubblegum ester. Light dry finish. Fine but something of a let down, was expecting much more.

Habanero (3165) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear and light amber with an average, creamy, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma of spices, caramel, wood and with notes of yeast. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with a hint of bitterness. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice brew.
