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.

Pringao_Toribi (248) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2013
Kind of the low alcohol version of a abbey beer, not bad but in comparision with another trappist and belgian beers its a little ill flavoured. For cap collectors: green cap with a white aureola and with the imprint of a monk and the words "Pater watou"

Minderbinder (1860) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle 330ml. Pours deep amber/mahogany with very low beige "head". Aroma is of malt, sugar, fruits, slight candi. Taste is of malt, sugar, fruits, some bitterness, yeast, some candi. Palate: Medium body. Overall: Not fantastic. Nice belgian yeast features, but it’s about all.

Bottle (330 ml). Amber/brown with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma of caramel, light sweetness notes, floral presence, Belgian yeast, bread notes and light spices. Taste is moderately sweet with yeast, caramel, spices and light floral notes. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Ok Dubbel. Not really complex, even a tad boring. Not bad though.

MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2013
250ml Bottle. This one pours a cloudy (at least i think its cloudy - its a bit difficult to judge being so dark) dark reddish brown with think white lacing (even on a hard pour). Its aroma is dark fruits, sweetness and malts. It tastes malty, with a little fizz then more dark fruits (plum?) then a slightly dry bitter finish. Not a bad beers this - at 6% its thankfully missing the pure sweetness of some of its similar beers

Shag (2609) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2013
This poured a dark brown color with a beige head. The flavor Is a bit sweet and also sour with some dark fruit, caramel, and a bit of booze. The aftertaste is malty with the caramel and raisins but also a bit sour with the grapes. Overall a nice beer

psilosophy (493) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - AUG 19, 2013
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur ambrée tirant sur le marron, mousse moyennement abondante et de faible tenue. Des Arômes très fruités : fruits rouges, pruneaux, peut être un peu trop sucrée en goût. La carbonnation est assez crêmeuse, plutôt agréable en bouche. Trouvée à Roby - Menin.

Bamsen78 (3155) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy darkish amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and dried fruit. Sweetish, malty and caramellish flavour, replaced by hoppy notes, themselves giving way to fruity touches and a rather bitter finish. Complex and interesting, but not from the very top shelf.

GSAP (499) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2013
Karamel, hout en licht zuur van zuid-Europees kaasje in aroma. Smaak is kruidig, warm steenfruit met dito nasmaak met een randje bitter. Geen kraag na twee minuten, wellicht door te koud uitschenken.
