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.

Franckg (1179) - 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.

nybol (1427) - DENMARK - MAR 21, 2016
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.

Vignale (3317) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2015
Flaska från Beergium. Bärnstensfärgad med en del jästsediment, högt krämigt skum. En lätt dubbel eller kanske mer åt en belgisk amber. Relativt lätt med balanserad sötma. Lätt kryddig, lite jäst, pomerans, blommig och lite söt torkad frukt, lätt höig beska. Drickvänlig och riktigt trevlig
