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.

Bottle at Delirium Café in Gothenburg. My bottle said "Kapittel Watou PAter Ale". Dark amber color, big beige head. Typical Belgian ale scent. Low to none bitterness, fruity taste. Rather big body. A nice fresh Belgian ale that I can have more of.

nice copper brown appearance with heavily visible carbonation and nice white head. aroma is of sweet lemon candy, think they’re called lemonheads. flavor is nicely balanced with malt, citrus, and spice. finish with some hops, may have been better with a little more alcohol bite.

henrikb (1262) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2006
2003 - Brown clear body, red shine, huge fluffy beige head, some laces; Not all that big a nose, lacks depth and complexity, a little metallic, brown sugar, not fat but on the other hand a bit fresh; Medium sharp carbonation, soft texture, balanced; Into long a bit malty sharp finish that also has a very little bitter hop together with some brown sugar.

Skinnyviking (8694) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2006
Bottle. Off-white high and lasting head. Hazy ruby body. First impression of aroma is spicy roasted malt, later it seems fruity. It is rather sweet with a flavor of berries and sugar.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Poured a deep reddish copper with a thin beige head and moderate lacing. Aroma has a very herbal grassy hop character followed by some fruitiness most likely of dark candy sugar. Flavor is very hop forward, a gentle maltiness is consumed by the same herbal hop character that dominated the aroma. It finishes into a considerable amount of hop bitterness for a belgian. The bitterness seems to be slightly on the harsh side. Mouthfeel is also kind of watery.

Eructoblaster (3843) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown cloudy body with ruby glints and a lasting beige foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with fruity (plum, grape) notes. Texture is mild. Taste is well-balanced and complex. Carries fruity, flowery and yeasty hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish. Very enjoyable.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 11, 2006
Draught. Dark amber colour, big off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with hoppy hints. Flavour is weirdly mixed sweet- and sourness and some plum. Sticky palate, which becomes drier in the finish.

Dark brown body with minimal head. Fruity accents in the aroma, somewhat citrus in nature. Nice mollasses body , malts with some hops, very little in the way of fruits here however. Cool ending, no alcohol burn.
