COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after brother Isidorus, Koningshoeven Abbey’s first brewer. Brewed to mark the occasion of the Trappist brewery’s 125th anniversary in 2009, Isid’or was so well received that it earned itself a permanent place in La Trappe’s line-up. Unfiltered, slightly sweet amber ale with a hint of caramel, which continues to ferment after bottling and has a rich, slightly bitter flavour, and a fruity aftertaste. Wheat & barley malts, Perle hop.

750 ml. bottle. (K05F9) Pours a thin short lived beige head, over a clear amber (SRM 7) body.....nose is toffee/caramel, raisin, plum, brown sugar......taste is sweet malts to start with light raisin, then bit of barnyard funk, finishing with a light astringent spice bitterness....mouth feel is light to medium, carbonation medium to high. This is definitely a Dubble. It is a bit over sweet, and the mouth feel is on the light side. BJCP 6/3/13/4/6

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2012 Rerate: tap @ La Trappe. Notes can be the same, but I preferred it much more than before. Great balanced belgian ale. Bottled, thanks to jerohen. Hazy orange color, medium head. Aroma is bit spicy, bit fruity. Slight sweet, bit spicy taste. Decent belgian ale. 3.4

Pours clear copper with a dense bubbly tan head. The aroma has toasted Belgian brown malt, candy sugar, Belgian yeast, nectar fruits and apple. Medium / thick body that’s on the cloying side with lots of carbonation that completely fills the mouth. The flavor starts with everything from the aroma notes, but there is a good amount of phenolic spice and it is drier than expected with some cracker notes. The finish is dry with some nuttiness, and lots of Belgian brown ale malt. Quite nice.

Bottle. Cotton candy, and by that I mean fruity sugar. More cotton candy. Musty malt tones, a combination of bread and basement. That combination though didn’t have so much to do with my lack of enjoyment as the oppressive cotton candy.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy light brown with a small white head. Aroma of brown sugar, alcohol, raisins, sweet sweet malt. Flavor is also quite sweet and sticky, lots of malt plus some raisins. Overall, a sweet sticky mess, ick. 5/4/5/3/9 [2.6/5]

Pours up an amber with a bit of red, with a thick white head. Smells of mild alcohol. Taste has a lot of body and complexity. Spices, mostly. Interesting beer, I didn’t expect this.
