Origin of the Name: Gregorius Eisvogel was prior from 1925-31 and abbot from 1931-50. Father Dr. Gregor Eisvogel guided the Trappists, who were expelled after World War I from their mother monastery Oelenberg in Alsace, France, to Stift Engelszell. Nothing could stop him from making St. Engelszell the new home of his fellow Trappist monks, neither the overambitious purchase price nor the poor structural condition of the cathedral. His trust in God was simply unshakeable. Against all odds Father Gregor Eisvogel received approval to purchase Stift Engelszell. On December 3, 1931 he was elected to become the first abbot of the monastery. His unbridled enthusiasm, dedication, determination, and above all his faith in God were highly instrumental in reviving the monastery along the river Danube to a new pulsating life. Aside from using the local organic honey from the monastery apiary, it uses Alsacian wine yeast as a tribute to his heritage. Launched in 2012. 

Tasting Notes:

Style: dark Tripel/ quadruple

Color: deep, dark chestnut color. 

Nose: chestnut, cashew, honey, sour plum, herbs. 

Palate: chestnut, honeycomb, licorice, mocha, cocoa, raisin, sour cherry, eucalyptus. Deep and rich. The vinous character of the French-Alsacian wine yeast creates stunning sweet – sour notes on the palate. A touch of vanilla appears late with perhaps a bit of oregano, begging for more exploration. Finish is long, slightly tart, and dry. 

Malts used: Pilsner Malt, Cara Munich, roasted malt
Hops: Mühlviertler Aurora, Mühlviertler Magnum
yeast of primary fermentation: Trappist ale yeast
yeast of secondary fermentation: Alsacian wine yeast

An addition of organic honey produced at Engelszell’s bee farm is used instead of sugar for the secondary fermentation.
