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.

330ml served in a Leffe chalice. A: Pours a clear dark amber color forming a medium thin bubbled beige head. Great retention and lots of soapy and molasses lacings formed and left in the glass S: Sweet and fruity. Strong notes of grapes, raisins, toffee, caramel malts, roasted malts and candy sugar. Light flowery hops. Belgian-style bready and earthy yeasts. A bit boozy and a bit bubblegum in the very end. Strong Belgian character, as expected T: Sweet upfront. Very malty and fruity in the mouth too. Strong notes of grapes, raisins, toffee, caramel malts, roasted malts, candy sugar, oak. Some spices and some notes of bubblegum too. Light bitterness in the end. Hops are a bit citrus. Bready and biscuity yeasts profile. Again, quite Belgian M: Heavy and molasses body. Medium carbonation. Warming beer. Candy bittersweet aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Classic Belgian Strong Dark Ale. Recommended [ BA Review @ 12/26/2013 ]

ForlornHope (180) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2014
Aroma of malt, slightly earthy. 33 cl bottle pours with a large head that rapidly disappears. Red brown in colour, clear and attractive. Taste is sweet to start, becoming moderately bitter, with a light sourness. Sweet malt comes to dominate. Good mouthfeel, long moderate bitter finish. Overall a pleasing beer.

Poured a murky brown with an off white head. Aroma of sweet berries, candy and caramel malt. Light to medium body, flavour much as the aroma, light liquorice. Decent if uninspiring.

SlovakSniper (3692) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
33 cl. À consommer de préférence avant fin 01/16. Mousse abondante sur robe ambrée. Parfums maltés fruités. Saveurs de fruits confits, de sucre roux cristallisé. Effervescence vive et texture crémeuse. Finale sur un grain sec, grillé/rôti. Facile à boire. Peu impressionnante, trop douce, idéale pour ma femme qui aime la douceur maltée.

Alengrin (2991) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Lighter version of Het Kapittel Dubbel with the same colour, but paler head and more chocolatey malts in the aroma; spicy yeasty notes, candied fruits, dryer palate with hoppier finish than the Dubbel and actually this makes it a bit better, at least to my personal taste.
