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.

Davros (2716) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2012
Pours dark amber with a large, fading head. Nose shows sweet confectionary notes, banana, pear and apple esters alongside caramel. Flavours are equally sweet but seem a little weak, with just a bit of confectionery and alcohol. Not particularly interesting. Carbonation is too full on.

The taste is caramel, wood, leather, spice, underlying sweetness, banana, alcohol warmth and dough, with a very dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. A bit underwhelming.
