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.

Swaroga (1826) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2011
33cl bottle at Beermania, Brussels. Pours a dark amber with a small tanned head. Nose : sweet cherry, alcohol, caramel malts. Fruity. Sip :sweet malty start followed by more complex aromas mixed into bitter torified malts. Floral hops comes on top with very fine layer. Overall it’s a well balanced malty strong beer but not exceptional.

Niels_1992 (7) - - NOV 18, 2011 does not count
De geur bestaat uit een klein beetje karamel, de overheersende hop en mouten met een licht alcoholische afdronk. Bij het inschenken komt de dikke langdurige schuimkraag tevoorschijn, De smaak is licht fruitig, beetje karamel en licht bitter. Drinkt makkelijk want het bier voelt niet zwaar, het alcohol percentage valt mee: 7,5%. De smaak is goed in balans en bevat verder een licht prikkeltje van het koolzuur. De kleur heeft een rooie gloed.

Medium-bodied, with citrusy banana leaf notes dominating a creamy malt body with bread notes, finishing with clovey spice through the medium length.

GTAEgeek (1536) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2011
750 mL bottle aged for 15 months. Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. The aroma is tangerines, corriander, cloves, and heavy,dark bread yeast. The flavor is very sweet and a slight bitterness in the finish. The palate is heavy, smooth and clean. Overall, this is an excellent beer, made very mellow and smooth with age. The flavor is complex and pleasant.

Not the best contribution from La Trappe. Pours dark red with an amazing head but a surprisingly mild aroma. In the face of La Trappe’s other beers, the uniqueness of this beer’s dark fruit taste doesn’t compare.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - OCT 10, 2011
Classica birra che vuole essere complessa e invece è "trappista" solo nel marchio. Bah

BelgianBeerGal (3457) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2011
75cl traded bottle somewhere in the neighborhood of a year old. Pretty classic appearance and aroma although the latter trended towards something like a quad. Taste was nice too; sweeter malt and maybe a little boozey for "only" 7.5ABV. Fine.

MotherBrother (835) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2011
Pour Deeb amber, with a big fomay white head. A bit bitter, or bitter-sweet. Aroma of sour fruits. Not my cop of tea, so to speak.

Hark! What flavor doth impart upon thine palate?! It is this BPA and my tongue is ablaze with delight! Goes daggum good with these buffalo wings! This brew had my senses on overload! Abundant in scent and abundant in flavor, this brew was quite the excitement from start to finish! As the brew warmed up those flavors and scents became much more robust and I found that as it continued to warm that brew just got better and better! Definitely a quality brew to have a good stock of on-hand!
