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

11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a muddy dark brown with a nice reddish hue around the edges and an average (1-2 finger) tan creamy head that had great retention pretty much lasting throughout, thus creating some excellent sheets of sticky lacing. The aroma starts with a roasted sweet bread malt and moves on with an earthy somewhat leathery yeast. In the back ground I sensed notes of milk chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, some dark fruit (raisons and figs), a hint of smoke and a mild winey alcohol presence. The taste started with a nice malty sweetness and had hints of chocolate and brown sugar, progressing with a good bit of dark fruit and a slight alcohol finish. The flavor had a decent duration following the swallow with a sweet fruity taste fading as a mild creamy chocolate alcohol flavor settled on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a strong medium in body with an extremely smooth and creamy texture and an almost flat carbonation. Overall this was an exquisite tasting brew, one that possessed a nice sweet malty taste with a really intense creamy feel. This hid the moderately high ABV extremely well and made a pleasure to consume...

Grote fles. Donkerbruine kleur met een goede plakkraag die lang blijft. Aroma van mout, niet erg spannend. Smaakt niet heel vol, wat zoet,zuur en bitter. Ik ben niet onder de indruk.

Robe brune. Nez sur les épices, le chocolat, le caramel. Bouche à l’attaque épicée, une touche de café, bulle discrète, finale épicée. Un brune épicée, agréable.

tlind2 (1200) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle. Deep brown color, airy off-white head. Fairly dry, herbal tea aroma. Rich, sweet flavor that finishes with herbal, hoppy notes. Roasted malt. Full body, high carbonation. Would pair nicely with food.

First off, I love their flagship offering but this is a bit boring. Appearance: Dark copper Aroma: Slightly metallic, leather. Contrary to the description I get no smoke. Palate: Slightly malty with a leather finish

another boring belgian beer that smells, looks and tastes like some kind of sweet brown sugary mess.

Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Hearty aroma of yeast, fruit, sweet malts. Strong head. A perfectly solid Belgian.

Decent dubbel, not quite as sweet as some, which for me is a good thing. Quite high carbonation levels.

Lots of barley, earthy hops coupled with some mild bready yeast. Quite unique bouquet for a dubbel. Just not very dubbel-esque, not appealing and a little muddled. Light fruits and caramel malt. More English dark ale, than dubbel to me. Noble hops add a little extra depth but a real head-muddling mish-mash. Unfortunate.
