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. Itís a beer to enjoy in peace and quite. It has a complex aroma with fruit, raisins and roasted malts. Itís 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/).

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2010 Bottle, KBC í10. Only slightly hazy copper color, medium off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, raisin, caramel. Quite sweet taste, big malty background. Bit on the sweet side for me, but overall a good brew.

Bottle: Poured a black brown with a thin off white head. The aroma is fruits and licorice, very pungent to the point that it made me turned off. The taste however was a nice aged fruit and sweet sugary caramel malt. The alcohol was well hidden.

Somewhat a beer pretending to be a trappist. Elements are there but it comes out mostly disjointed. Malt and licorice dominates. All in all not bad ... if only had more balance.

Bottle. Dark brown color. Malt and licorice in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with licorice and warming alcohol. Tasty, but unrefined.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2008
A dark, almost black colored beer. Itís a little hazy. It has a beige foamy head. A malty aroma with dark fruits. The taste is some sweet, some bitter and also a little spicy. Some roasted malts. Itís in the style of a dark trappist. You donít taste the 10% alc. A good beer, of new and smal brewery

(ook) dit bier smaakt raar , volgens mij is deze (ook) niet goed,raar gistsmaakje, volgens mij is het gistje niet helemaal fris, het zou prettig zijn al op het etiket zou staan wat er geexpirimenteerd is , de vorige was namelijk wel lekker, al met al wisselt dit bier sterk van smaak net als de andere van deze brouwerij. jammer hoor de eerste was zo lekker wat een teleurstelling zeg,... bleh

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2008
(33cl bottle) Hazy, ruby colour with a mid-sized, slowly lacing beige foamy head. Sweet and yeasty, moderately toasted malt aroma with dried fruits, mainly raisins and a phenolic spicy touch with light notes of alcohol. Sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied with a medium carbonation. Dark malt character, slightly toasted with moderate dried fruity elements and a tinge of caramel and chocolate in the background; medium-dry, toasty and almost vinous finish with a soft alcoholic burn. Pleasant.

mdachi (35) - Paderborn, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2008
30 cl bottle. Appearance: dark brown and hazy with brown head. Aroma: heavy chocolate malt, reminding me on Rochefort Trappist. Flavor and Palate: A real malt bomb, with lots of c ara and roasted malts. Hence a flavor of cacao and coffee. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Not much CO2, but very well balanced. Thought also about Port wine some moments. Overall this beer can stand against every Trappist, especially Rochefort.
