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

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2016 Pours very dark with a greyish foam head, had this as drought beer. Taste is like roasted fruits, slightly sweet. Aftertaste is a bit too watery, not what I expected of it?s dark appearance. Still good enough and easy to drink!

Pours dark, murky brown with a very aggressive white to off-white head. Aroma is roasted barley, coffee, malts, some soft banana notes. Taste is very aggressive carbonated. CO2 prepares and activates your tasting buds for a very full, yet somewhat fresh taste, which is followed by a slight sweet aftertaste. The latter is then replaced with a gentle sour aftertase, leaving you nice roasty ending. A very fine dubbel.

Aromat bardzo przyjemny, świeży. Kojarzy się głównie z morelami. Jest owocowy, ale trochę wytrawny i rześki. W smaku ciemne słody, trochę ciemnego chleba, palony karmel. Goryczka niewysoka, ale bardzo wyraźna. Lekko ziołowa. Całość zaskakującą, ale bardzo przyjemna.

Ruby color with medium creamy brownish head and fruity smell. Raisins, dried fruit and brown sugar. Medium fruity sweet taste with bitter and malty aftertaste. Medium and creamy body,

Bottle, 33 cl: big creamy tan foam, lasted longer than average. Nice color, OK aroma. Despite a good first impression the beer failed to please me. The high ratings here may have increased my expectations too much. I won’t be in a hurry to give this one a second chance.

Shark_Pants (565) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2016
750ml bottle, only 6.5% labelled ABV, rather than 7.5%. Deep brown with ruby red pour with large billowing tan head that recedes fairly quickly. Big caramel aromas, with dark fruitiness - raisins, plums, dates, a little cherry. The taste is more watered down than I recall previously (perhaps the 1% ABV difference), but has some of the expected caramel, date, a little raisin and plum, plus some bready malt. Thin body and high carbonation. A little disappointing, given what I remember previously.

AnG_BrgNor (380) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2016
Aroma of fruit, malt and some raisin or other dried fruit. Taste is much of the same, but including yeast and some caramel. Maybe mine was to cold in the beginning becouse the taste get better and better. I think this one was to carbonated.

TtV (370) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Dark brown, beige head that fades quickly. Beer is a bit watery. The aroma is sweet: brown sugar and fruits. The taste is not very complex: sweetish with a spicy touches. Nice but nothing special.
