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.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2004
This brew pours with a reddish-brown body topped by a medium thick head with good lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty with a slight bitterness and a wierd caramel note, as well as, a very slight spiciness. The flavor is slightly sweet yet bitter and slightly off tasting with a slight metallic note. Medium to full bodied and slightly dry yet smooth.

DCopperfields (145) - Alabama, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Pours a deep copper hue with an enormous, rocky off-white head and thick, fluffy lace with lasts the duration, as does a big head riding atop the brew. Aroma is a bit musty, somewhat floral and spicy. Hints of carob and alcohol hit the nose. Taste is malty and complex, smooth and sweet. Starts with a medium mouthfeel, sweetness hits the tip of the tounge, is balanced out somewhat by a tartness, but the overall impression is sweet caramel, zany cinnamon and coriander spicing, and a long, lingering finish with a carbonation bite.

flemdawg (531) - Naples, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Hazy dark red color and a sparse head, to say the least. Dried fruits in the aroma, plums and cherries? Great taste, very complex. Sweet dried fruits at the beginning, and ending with a hoppy bitter note. Very easy to drink. Thanks Sue.

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2004
Bottle - Poured a deep murky amber brew with a nice huge foamy white head that's long lasting. ABV is bit too omnipresent but excellent carbonation. Taste is sweet with some quite complex mix of spice. I notice that some of the other review mentioned a metallic taste, which I have heard of before. If I recall well, the metallic taste is from the hops and usually goes away after the bottle is aged a bit.

Bottled: Amber coloured. Off white head. Medium lasting. Yeast and fruit in the nose. Flavour not very distinct. Notes of malt and fruits and has a light bitterness in the end.
