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.

Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with Vin and Sean to celebrate the launch of PhillyCraft. Pours a hazy chesnut with a rich, fuzzy beige head. Aroma of fresh plums, rasin bread, cinnamon buns, butter, and grapes. Medium, perhaps slightly full, bodied with a chewy, firm, supple palate. This is a lovely sipping beer; perfect for a nice, slow session. Easy finish with very balanced malty/earthiness to balance the sweetness of the dark fruits. Excellent Belgian ale.

Hazy copper, persistant beige head, medium-full body, medium-high carbonation.

Aroma: tons of caramel and toffee, bready belgian yeast, slight alcohol warmth, and subtle fruity esters.

Taste: caramel, toffee, fruity belgian yeast esters, herbal stale hops, slight alcohol, and a slight sour note.

Complex but balanced.

A work of art. Spices and dried fruit flavors abound Aroma of caramel, figs, oranges, etc. taste is complex mixture of the noted aromas, with a lingering palate and slightly dry finish. Very nice indeed, a fitting tribute to Brother Isadore.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Pours brown to caramel color. A tiny bit of white to very slight tan head. Raisin, caramel. malt, some wort, hint of alcohol nose. Medium body. Could be a bit fuller. Below average carbonation. Sweet, with a medium bitter ending. Caramel, raisin, candy, date, some wort, red and ripe green fruit flavour. Extraordinary good. Style seems very close to a quadruple.

Tap at Lucky Baldwin’s. Nice full aroma of trappist yeast, flour, dark fruit. Color is great for this style: a wonderful roasty light brown. Flavor is roasty round malt, plum, date, more yeast, esters, dark, dark grape and sweet grain. Really great. A hell of an anniversary beer.

75cl bottle from Systembolaget. Best before 2012-02-01. It poured a hazy amber colour with a big medium big creamy white head. The aroma is sweet and inticing with notes of banana, apples, fruits, yeast and malts. The flavour is also sweet and malty. Notes of banana, apples, fruits and yeast. Some alcohol, but it’s hidden well. It has a medium long aftertaste. A very nice way to celebrate my 300th rating at RateBeer.
