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.

This is just amazing. Perfect CO2, smooth, "a dangerous beer" - only issue is that it’s to small in a 33 cl. bottle!

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.

Heerlijk biertje. Sterk van smaak maar toch mild voor de keel. Mooi amberkleurig en genieten maar.

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.

The taste varies over good and exciting shades like caramel, brown sugar, raisins, plums, dates, honey, green apple, pear and a little dark rye bread. Carbonation is soft and weak, and it releases just the flavor nuances so you get full value for money. Although it is a little on the weak side of what are called strong beer (I mean over 9%), then I think certainly it can be stored dark and cool to develop even more over the years. The hops are present, but in a fresh way where it finally tastes a little bitter of fresh grass and citrus. The finish is medium dry.
