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.

A very nice trappist. Fruity and malt-forward, similar in character to to their Quadruppel but with a lighter body and prominent oak character. Not worth the price but nice to try.

Bottle. Brown hazy pour with no head. Oak, malty, sour?, fruit and dark aromas. Flavors are lacking, spice, yeast, oak and malty tones.

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 (3045) - 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.

Even after aging 1 year this is the worst beer I’ve ever had. The finish is pure wood. Like chewing on a toothpick

Porzadne piwo. Moze mialo niewielka piane pachnialo niesamowicie. Melasa, zasuszonymi kwiatami, sliwka, kompotem z suszu. A w smaku jakby dominowal aromat drewna wilgotnego, spruchnialego. Podobalo mi sie i zwlaszcza te estry. Octowe lekko i wytrawne. Niewielka slodycz na poczatku, ale momentalnie piwo w smaku staje sie wytrawne jak wino. Arcy ciekawe piwo, moze smak zawdziecza lezakowaniu poniewaz nabylem to piwo jakies 4 lata temu. Jeden minus to gumowy, syntetyczny korek ktory ciezko wyciagnac. Do takiego piwa nie przystoji taki tandetny korek.
