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.

Suttree (5766) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Reddish Brown, thin beige head. Fruity, sweetish aroma, with notes of fig and pepper. Smooth and smokey, with notes of toast and pine an pepper. Perhaps a bit too subtle? Palate is kind of cola-ish, too. There is a subtle but persistant grape flavor to the finish. Bottle, Union Jack’s, Knoxville.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Murky, opaque copper in the glass; streaky lace left by the putty-colored froth. Unusual aroma... primarily dust... also dates and figs, and more subtley, marshmallow and walnut. Mild sugar/molasses flavor dosed with chalk and slatey minerals. Berry, metal shavings, and spice are evident to a lesser degree. Odd aluminum foil finish dries out the tongue. Light palate, pinpoint carbonation. Chalky antacid and slightly bittersweet aftertaste. Overall, strange with the calcium and metal flavor elements, and not very assertive or interesting.

SDalkoholic (2298) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Appears a murky brown ale with a lot of sediment inside. Thin covering of foam that leaves a decent amount of lacing. Flavor is sweet and hs signs of malt, sugr, and raisin. The aroma was basicaly the same but also smelled almost like a root beer soda.

shrubber85 (9625) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Bottle. Sweet orange and apple malt aroma with moderate hops. Cloudy orange brown color with small but lasting head. Very syrupy sweet malt flavor up front (a bit cloying) with a strong bitter hops finish. One of the worst tasting belgian ales I’ve tried.
