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.

Shag (2585) - 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 (484) - 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 (2978) - 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 (473) - 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.

Pyrmir (3267) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2013
330 ml bottle. Murky brown with beige head. This bottle was a bit oxidized. Aroma of malt, caramel, bread and floral hops plus the cringy oxidized notes. Taste is sweet and malty, full taste with fairly low bitterness. Finish is bready and caramelly.

Cantabrian (780) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 26, 2013
The appearance is not too flattering, looking like something we get from hepatitis. Fishy flavour behind the rather seemingly synthetic aroma of fruits. No good. Reminded me of my disastrous experience with the Achel Bruin.

Holmen1 (2306) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2013
Flaske delt med Ovesen: fint skum og vakker kobberrød/brun farge med en mild aroma av maltsødme og humle (Poperingse). En riktig deilig frokostdubbel som gir oss en fin start på bryggeridagen.
