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
Brewed with roasted malt, hence its deep dark reddish colour. It is a mellow, dark, top-fermented beer, refermented and matured in the bottle to obtain a lively, bubbly beer with a rich head

Brown color with light brown foamy head. Bitter shlight bit of chocolate taste. Not spectacular, also not bad.

Malty, malty, malty. Aromas of raisen, plum, rich dark malt, Belgian Candy sugar. Hass a rich malty, molasses flavor. Yummy!

Malty aroma, with a hint of citric sharpness. The flavour is malty and alcoholic, but has a very sweet treacle and molasses character. In fact, too sweet for me. I have no doubt this is a good beer, but it is just too cloying for my tastebuds.

With a full airy head and beautiful brown color, this is definitely one of the best beers i've ever had. Period.

Deep dark ruby body. The tan head is rather large and foamy. The aroma is caramel, dark fruit, and yeast. The flavor is sweet caramel, raisins, plums and little bit of alcohol. Body is medium with very lively fizzy carbonation. Not bad, but ther are better to be had.

Very nice hazy brown color with a bit of orange and a huge, fluffy, long-lasting tan head. Clove, malt and banana in the aroma. Sweet banana, clove, and malt flavors with a little spice and hops. Very tingly feel with a fairly dry finish. Very nice.

Garnet appearance with a bigger than average head. Muted, fruity aroma. Spicy, fruity taste with overtones of plums and figs. Crisp, tart finish.

Nice dark brown pour with a thick white head. Nice yeast, fruit, grape aroma. Decent taste. Nice, smooth, and flavorful. Raisin/grape flavor, with some malt. Tasted very well. Impressed indeed!

Pours a dark brown with a huge off white head, great lacing. Good looking beer. Aroma is pretty much like the commercial description. You have the yeast, the fruits (raisin or grape wine, maybe the port aroma coming through,) though the smokiness it mentions doesn't show too much. Now I can really detect the port. Flavors are abundant and fairly complex. The port hits home first, then the raisin/grapes roll on in, a bread (sourdough comes to mind) and a slight touch of alcohol. The palate is highly carbonated and tangy. Full body with a nice finish of alcohol and a tang. Fine dubbel.
