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

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Tap at Jacs, but this might have been the first Belgian beer I ever had in bottle form decades ago. Deep unfiltered brown, hints of burgundy. Foamy, beige head. A touch of dry aspirin, but more deep, dark fruit. Brown malt tones. Big yeast tones, otherwise a creamy big brown ale. Quite an excellent, classic example of a Belgian Brown. Almost medium bodied in the world of Belgian Ale. Caramel, molasses, brown sugar. Excellent.

Keukeman (90) - BEST, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2016
Got this served straight from the draft. Dark brown beer, hints of red fruit and caramel. Sweet taste, but not too sweet like some of other dark beers. Pretty good beer, though i’d rather drink this in winter than summer.

Look: dark brown, hazy, beige head with average retention. Aroma: roasted, dark berries, light spicy notes. Taste: moderate caramel sweetness with prominent berry sourness. Light body with moderate to strong carbonation. Flavour: roasted, chocolate desert with berries. Not bad.

Mine is 6.5 ABV and has Pater Dubbel Ale on bottle. Its a decent Belgian ale. Not sure I would purchase again...there nothing that really makes it stand out.
