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.

bmxutos (161) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - SEP 4, 2005
Bottle, 33cl. Light brown colour with a nice beige head. Much better than the dubbel. Hoppy aroma, with notes of malt and caramel. Flavour is sweet and malty with a light metallic note. Smooth and drinkable. A good one.

330 ml bottle. Hazy orange brown colour with a mostly lasting frothy, big bubbled, tan head. Caramel, yeasty, and spicy aroma with some dark fruit notes. Caramelized sugar, raisin, citrus and spicy flavours. Medium bodied, sticky.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2005
Bottled. A chestnut brown coloured beer with a good off-white head. Thea roma is yoghurty fruit with some caramel and toffee. The taste is sugary but also a bit meaty and odd. Reminded me of Abbaye des Rocs. Good full body but something is not quite right in the taste.

BBB63 (6510) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2005
330 ml bottle served in my St Bernadus glass:

A muddled deep amber almost brown hue with a small but lasting fizzy head and good Lace. The aroma has notes of blackberry, orange zest, curacao, cardamom, white pepper, caramel, and earthy yeast esters. Taste starts with a strange combination of sweet fruits and malt along with some twangy sourness and salty nature. Not really sure what to make of it but it seems to work in a wierd way. Gets a bit yeasty and barnyard notes appear on the finish with a final kick of spice. Minor phenolic undertones are present but not distracting. The feel is sort of so-so, doesn’t add or subtract anything from the overall experiance. A okay brew, nothing special but worth a try.

In the 330 ml bottle from Cyclone Liquors. Pours a dark amber color with a fluffy beige head. This beer appears and tastes like sweet ice tea! Very low hop content. In a lot of ways this resembles an unattenuated homebrew. The thick gloppy lacing on the sides of the glass are beautiful.

mjg74 (2950) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Bottled. Pours a fairly dark brownish/orange color. Fairly sizable head. Rich fruity aroma. Malty and quite spicy as well. Flavor is rather dry and pretty sweet. Almost a syrupy sweet fruit juice like flavor. Some malts and spices as well. Finish is somewhat sweet. Pretty flavorful.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark amber, with a big, brownish head. Very full-bodied and aromatic from the malts. Some fruitiness and light, sweet caramel - but overall the dryness dominates. Very discreet hops in the finish. 091197

jgb9348 (5472) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Slightly hazy amber coloured body with strong ruby highlights and a nice frothy off-white head. Aroma of malt, coriander seed, curacao, caramel and a very light hop presence. Light-bodied; Metallic & vegetable tasting up front with pungent twangs of blood and stale malt. Some funky sweet flavours follow soon afterwards, then leaving a bitterness in the palate that lasts and lasts. Overall, a fairly bad beer-nothing too great going on in this one. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased in the special four pack at Village Pump Liquors in College Park, Maryland on 15-January-2004 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

33cl bottle, BB 03/06. Pours brown with nice tan head, leaving good lace...immediate aroma is the metallic/chlorine smell that I’ve gotten from every other beer they put in my 2 sampler packs....Under that lies some fruity malt...drinks fizzy. Some nice carmel malt and pear(tart pear??) before finishing off with metallic bitterness. Despite some glaring defects, it still manages to pull itself together yielding some odd fruitiness.
