For this sweet flavoured and dark brown beer,we use aromatic malt (for the dark colour). For abbey beer, Kapittel Pater has rather low abv (6%). The hop we use is Poperingse hop which has only a light bitter taste.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is dark amber colored and a stable creamy head, with average carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity, with tones of dark fruits, caramel and brown sugar. The taste is light sweet with a light sourness from some fruits and ends with some spicy bitterness, with tones of licorice. The finish is dry and light bitter.

Pours a mostly clear mahogany colour with an inch of off white foam that does okay with the lacing. Smells of caramel malt, hints of fruit like apple, candi sugar and what I sense. .Cardboard. Yep, it starts off on the sweet side with the caramel and candi sugar, gets a bit fruity and then the cardboard moves in and spoils the session. Not good. Pretty light bodied and the carbonation is fine. I couldn’t find a date of any kind on the label or the bottle; thinking this is not all that fresh. Oh well.

33cl bottle shared with my dad. He loved it. Basement aromas and toast. Slightly sour but metallic. Sweet nontheless. A little nutty.

Franckg (923) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2016
Robe brune trouble surmontée d’un col de mousse beige et onctueux. Arômes de caramel, levures poivrées, herbes, pruneaux, citron. Bue après plus d’un an en bouteille et ça commence peut-être à se faire sentir. En bouche, ça ne s’améliore pas. Du malt caramélisé et citronné, gazon, zeste d’orange, quelques fruits sucrés séchés. Finale faisant plus penser à une pilsner... Texture onctueuse mais un corps mince. Jumelé à un léger manque de saveurs, ce n’est pas super.

Bottle to glass. Dried fruit nose, lots of plum and raisin. Murky reddish brown pour with small white head. Taste follows with a creamy mouthfeel yet a dry finish. Decent.

Het Kapittel Pater er en Abbey Ale, der som de andre ale i denne serie kan spore deres historie tilbage til klosteret i Watou i 1629. Øllet har en lidt sødlig smag, som bl.a. skyldes malten og de 2 varianter af humle. Øllet er mørkt, fyldigt og har en lang og lidt bitter eftersmag, som dog er behagelig.
