Zuster Agatha is a dark beer with 10% ABV. Brewed according to the Trappist traditions and only natural ingredients. Althoug these types of beer a normally named after male chatholics the brewer still decided to name it after Sister Agatha. It’s a beer to enjoy in peace and quite. It has a complex aroma with fruit, raisins and roasted malts. It’s full and solid with a surprisingly dry finish. It invites you to take another sip. Please be careful with this high alcoholic beer as the strenght might attack you by surprise. Brewed for and with the recipe of de Muifel Brouwerij (http://www.muifelbrouwerij.nl/).

Pours a large light brown rocky head that mostly diminishes. Lacing is good. Body is clar, sparkling with red brown hue. Aroma contains roasted malts, lemon hops, light dough from yeasts, grape and raisin, brown sugar, licorice and alcohol. Flavor starts off light acidic with lemon or citrus from hops, to be quickly followed by moderate sweetnes and a roasted taste from burnt malts and fruits like raisin and grape. Finish is dry and light bitter, a bit astringent and there's some taste of alcohol, which is quite well hidden. Palate is light to medium, a bit watery in texture and with lively carbonation. A little less sweetness would make it more balanced. Still, very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

33 cl bottle @ home. Clear, deep red-brown color. Big off-white head with long retention and good lacing. Aroma’s: caramel/toffee and red fruit nicely combined, with some spices/herbs (anise/laurel) retronasal, somewhat roasted & alcoholic. Flavor is medium sweet with tones of red fruit. Alcoholfeel is not too strong, body is medium (even on the thin side). Finishes somewhat dry, with a hint of bitterness. OK.

Aroma is kruidig, rozijnen en donker fruit. Smaak is krenten, kruidig, peperig en zoutig, maar body is verassend licht. Afdronk is met roggebrood, die inderdaad droog is. Licht rokerig bitter in de nasmaak. Kraag zakt snel. Het bier groeit niet tijdens drinken.

Bruinrood, flinke kraag die inzakt tot een laagje op het bier. Ruikt zoetmoutig en wat naar zoet fruit. Medium body, smaakt zoetig maar ik haal er niks specifieks uit. Niks bijzonders.

lelisboa (62) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2012
Dark brown color. 3 fingers of off-white foam. Aroma is complex: roasted malt, apricot, prugne, raisin, spiciness and earthiness. Tastes is a challenging between sweetness and bitterness: caramel, spiciness, bitter chocolate(!), cacao, dried fruits, and yeast. After tasting is what get me impressed more. Very long spicy presence. Overall is a good quadrupel. It could stand up against a trappist like Rochefort with its all strength and complexity, but at the end, there is something missing here behind the spiciness and high abv. I like it, but I could do without it.
