La Trappe Isid’or

Nothing terribly interesting going on in my world. A little drama at work, but don’t we all have some of that? If it was fun, they would call it “Goodness” or “Awesomeness” instead of “Work”, now wouldn’t they? Working on wasting my evening away on video games, TV, and a movie. A movie we’ve already seen but barely remember: Finding Forester. I really didn’t realize how lame tonight was until I just wrote about it.

I guess I’ll spice up the night with a review of La Trappe Isid’or. This is coming from the never ending stash of beer that my mother gave me back in April for my birthday. At least I think it is. So many damn beers in the house and they all came from various places. There are much worse problems to have. :)

La Trappe Isid’or is a Trappist brew. That means some drunken monks brewed it. Historically, monks brew beer because they go through fasting periods without food and only drink beer because it provides sustenance. Sign me up for that monastery baby!

The brew pours a burnt orange. At first the head fizzled and popped – I started to think it would quickly dwindle. Fear not! The fizzle stopped and a fluffy white head remained.

The brew lacks a lot of aroma.

The taste is caramel through and through. There is some spice flavor in there too, but not a whole lot.

The aftertaste is long, smooth and creamy. A deliciously sweet beer that really hits the spot after dinner. Two thumbs up from me!
