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.

Deep-rubin - dark-nuts colour. Pure head. Flavour is typicall trappist ale with mildly banan. The taste is the gender of trappis ale with a few nuts, chocolate-cacao and cognac. At the and a little bit biterness what is very plesent. Full mouth is very cool you want drink again! Alcohol is a little bit to tastabel by 7,5% but it is rather intressting as bad.

750 ml bottle from czar ; shared with czar and friends. A hazy copper amber with a short-lasting white head. Smell is buttercream, butter. Taste is sweet, fruity (red berries), spices, cloves, pepper. Finish has a good bitterness, quite finely balanced! Sweet caramel. Medium body, somewhat oily in mouth. Very good, actually, I should say...excellent!

Thyme. Malted milk. Somewhat more complex and less chewy than their quad. Very trappist. Very nice.

A new Trappist beer...how could I say no? The pour is a beautiful caramelized dark brown with a dense beige head...some nice carbonation dies slowly. The nose is sweet, toffeed malts, caramel, raisins, light spices, apples and a warmth overall. Rather sweet malt character with a big toffee and caramel flavour, light toasty and biscuity flavour with a light raisin fruitiness, beautiful smooth carbonation and a well balanced flavor. Overall, a great trappist brew.

Bottle (750 ml). From czar, thanks! Clear amber color with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma of malt with slight notes of caramel, brown sugar, dark fruits and spices. Taste is of malt, spices, caramel, dark fruits and citrus. Aroma and flavor are pretty smooth. Slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel is a tad thin. Some alcohol warming. Good belgian ale. Very smooth and enjoyable!

jamesie1857 (1972) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2012
33cl bottle in hotel room - saddest ever tasting of a "Trappist" beer... in a paper cup. Yeast and banana come through in the aroma. Malty banana flavour, toffee, smooth to medium bodied. Nothing real fancy but very well done.

kaivoetmann (5) - NORWAY - OCT 28, 2012 does not count
Poured a deep caramel color ale, huge foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma: Belgian caramel malt with some sweet caramel notes and light fruity ester. Taste: a mix between some Belgian caramel malt with some good notes of fruity ester and a balanced level of sweetness. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed with nice level of complexity and great level of drinkability. One of the better trappist beers i have tried

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2012
750ml bottle. Served in a trappist glass. Appearance: Transparent golden brown, minimal carbonation, small fine beige head. Aroma: caramel, malt vanilla. Good, but nothing super complex. Palate: thick bodied, fizzy, creamy, slightly oily, slightly dry finish. Taste: Fairly savoury. No bitterness. Not bad, but not as complex as I’d hoped for.
