Launched 1982 by Jef Keersmaekers as Pater Noster. Brewed by Brasserie Du Bocq since launch.
Ingredients: Caramel, Pilsen and Munich barley malts, and Saaz, Kent and Hallertau hops

Sofajoern (146) - DENMARK - JUN 29, 2005
Dark amber colour and a big, (very) pale head, that lasted quite a bit in the glass. Discreet aroma, almost indistinct. Nice fruit and malt in the flavour and a pleasing smoothness on the palate. (Bottled)

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 Pours a transparent red brown with a decent amount of froathy light brown head. Aroma is not too distinct: slightly yeasty sweet malty fruit. Flavor is raisiny and sweet with a slight spicy yeast flavor, but nothing too overpowering or out of the ordinary. Overall, a pretty decent belgian.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
(on bottle) Dark red-brown, like a fox in the fall. Aroma like burnt toast and canesugar. Tad of fruit too. Funny absense of a fullness in the mouthfeel. It feels and tastes more like plumjuice, fruitness, with a hint of oxidaded hops and cocobean. The finish has a hint of malts. Funny gummybear taste in the late finish.

MoritzF (9156) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2005
(on tap at Léon de Belge in Essen/Ruhr) Dark amber colour with a small tanned head. Sweet malty aroma with lots of dried fruits, yeasts and coriander spice. Initially sweetmalty taste with an almost refreshing slightly sour fruitiness turning into a spicy (pepper, coriander) and sweetbitter finish with hints of grilled red paprika. Medium body, the alcohol is well integrated. A very tasty Dubble !

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Bottle. Murky, dark tan pour, with off-white head. Smelled of raisins and brown sugar. Tasted like raisins, brown sugar, and that wonderful belgian caramelish flavor.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Amber/brown in color. Very carbinated tan head that sticks around. A bit sweet, a little chocolate. I really enjoyed this one. Would pick up again for sure. Also could taste the malt in this one.
