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/).

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dark fruit and liquorice.

Turbid/opaque ruby/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dark fruit and liquorice.

This beer is rather intense and complex, but lacks balance. This beer is too sweet to make out all the individual flavours.

Colore marrone scuro con riflessi rosso rubino, buona limpidezza; schiuma abbondate, compatta, cremosa e dall’ottima persistenza. Aroma di malto, caramello, intensi profumi di frutta scura (prugna su tutti, datteri, fichi). In bocca è maltata, dalla buona speziatura, leggera presenza anche di luppolo a bilanciare l’altrimenti eccessiva dolcezza; è ben strutturata, frutta matura (prugne, uva passa), ancora spezie, zucchero di canna. L’alcool (10%) rimane ben nascosto e non disturba la bevuta, corpo pieno; nel finale torna una leggerissima presenza di luppolo, ma rimane comunque abboccato.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2015 Aroma: roaster malts, dark fruits, alcohol. Taste: Roasted malts, vanilla, caramel, raisins, dark fruits. The aftertaste is mostly bitter, malts, maybe even salty. Nice one. Less fruity and ?darker? than La Trappe Quad.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Stas & Vova. Pours gushing. Murky amber-brown color. Smell of dried fruits, brown sugar, candy and yeast. Sweet, flavors of raisins and prunes, boozy and slightly oxidized. Medium-full bodied, syrupy texture.

Voilà donc la Sœur Agathe brassée chez de Proef, en Belgique, d’un niveau de 10 % abv, pour 20° plato. Le niveau ebu serait de 30, sous réserve de vérification. Une quadruple dans plusieurs sens, puisqu’elle emploie aussi 4 malts : pils, caramunich, spécial B, chocolat. Deux houblons au menu : Northern brewer et Hallertau mittelfrüh. Couleur brun roux très joli. Clarté nette, Bulles fines partout très vives. Mousse beige soutenu, très épaisse, avec une texture crémeuse, stable à 8 mm. Arômes de malt grillé,houblon, tabac brun, bois blanc, pointe de cassonade, prune blanche et raisin. 1ère bouche très soyeuse à la très belle entame malt/houblon/épices, quasiment à l’équilibre d’office. Arrière-bouche longue, bien maltée. 2ème à la texture superbe, bien maltée, avec des épices en bâton. Arrière-bouche au très beau caractère, longue. 3ème où la cassonade ressort un peu, mais les malts alternent joliment. Arrière-bouche très pleine, dense, avec des prunes blanches et des raisins secs. Longueur avec des nuances magnifiques, capiteuses (ma Sœur). Jambes denses, très serrées mais fines. Levure très fine, superbe, la classe (on dit même qu’elle serait d’origine trappiste !!). Alcool très efficace, travail maximum sur les saveurs. Finale belle, encore en montée. CONCLUSION : du très haut régime, un moteur 6 cylindres en ligne, et on roule ma poule (pardon ma Sœur) sur la highway 66, vers des horizons où se pointe un grand 5 !! Si on laisse vieillir, et le brasseur préconise 5 ans, on pourra voir se pointer peut-être un grand 6 !! Pourquoi pas, Agatha ?

Mooie quadruppel met een mooi pallet. Caramel, fruit en eik, waarbij het bittertje prettig blijft hangen.
