COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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.

Draft. Hmm. Very promising appearance and aroma. Color is dark caramel, and it smells like fruits and toffee. At first, flavor is very smooth and sweet, but then it hit me as nauseating, and in the end, all I could taste was metal. Very disappointing.

My favorite of the Kapittel beers. I find it is at its best when room temperature--at colder temperatures, metallic and stale notes are present. The flavor is wonderful. Gentle caramel maltiness (less caramel than in the Prior, which gives this the edge) with wood notes and some cinammon. Lush body indicates that this is real Belgian. Not enormously complex, but still one of the finer light Abbey browns.

Pailhead (5397) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2005
Bottle: Malty aroma of fruit and yeast. A little grape. Pours a slightly hazy amber with some very fine sediment. Off-white soapy head lasts for about a minute. Decent lacing. Flavors are sweet, fruity and malty. Light raisin int he background. Light yeast and even lighter hops in the finish. Every few sips I seem to get a light metallic flavor lingering into the aftertaste. When it’s not there, this is rather good. When I pick it up, it really hurts my impression of the beer. Also, a little thin for a Belgian.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - APR 10, 2005
Bottle. Medium to deep amber colored. Nice off-white head provides nice lacing. Aroma is a little fruity and slight sugars. Initially sweet and then a bit sour/off. Perhaps metallic. Fair, nothing to search after.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Caramel malt is very prominent with a bit of candy sugar and dates evident and some black tea. Finishes nice but a bit to sweet.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2005
Pours a hazy deep cooper with a fast fading medium sized light tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, sugar, cardboard, and yeasty. Flavor has light fruit, sweet, and doughy. Clean light finish. Light body.

lamas (1426) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 31, 2004
11.2 oz bottle. Pours a hazy red with super-thick fluffy tan head. Aroma is of sour fruit and yeast. Taste is surprisingly bland. Begins sweet but then finishes flat, sugary and malty. Very thin. Almost watery.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 29, 2004
Pours a clear copper brown with a frothy and well-lacing light tan head. Aroma is a dry malty mix of Belgian yeast, candi sugar, and licorice that for some reason just didn’t work very well. The body starts sugary sweet with some mild bready yeast showing up toward a watery finish. It has a dry sugary flavor, but not a dry body. A very mediocre Belgian brew.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Amber-brown body with a dense fine particulate haze and medium off-white head with thick lace. Funky aroma is strongly vegetal, nutty, phenolic, and plasticky, with more than a hint of mustard seed. Malty flavor is also plasticky with medicinal phenols and oxidative notes. Substantial bitterness. This borders on the nasty. The worst of the Kapittel bunch.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Purchased in a four-pack sampler that came with three others from this brewery. Pours a brown color with a nice thick off-white head that left a very nice lace. Aroma is mainly of dark fruits and spices. Nicely done. Palate is very sweet, but there’s a really strong metalic finish to it. So yeah, sweet metal with some mild spices. Palate is thin and kinda foamy. Eh... Overall, I won’t be reaching for another one. It’s rather disappointing.
