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.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2004
330ml bottle brought back from Belgium in a Duvel glass. Deep, bright brown. A wonderful aroma of malt, caramel and dried fruit. Flavour is along the same lines, sweet and malty with lots of caramel fruit, mild bitter finish. Last bit (with the sediment in) has a slightly yeasty character to it. Slight stale edge loses this a couple of points. Probably the best thing I’ve had from this brewery yet, reminds me of Gordon’s Scotch.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2004
(Best by January/2006) (6%ABV According to my bottle) The beer is dark amber in color with a touch of chill haze. The nose is sweet and fruity. Of course the head and lace are spot on Belgian style. The palate is smooth rounded and medium in body. I taste darker fruits and sugars coupled with a slight bit of chocolate. The finish is smooth fruity and long lasting. Overall, I find this beer to be a great example of a Belgian session Abbey Ale.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2009 (Draught@Belge, Helsinki) Hazy dark reddish brown with a tanned, firm and fluffy head. Very dried-fruity, complex and pleasant aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet and grainy, but very (dried-) fruity with low bitterness and caramely malt. Medium body, soft carbonation. Pleasant and balanced dubbel, but probably better with yeast from the bottle. (Draught, was 7-5-8-4-15=3.9) Very dark reddish brown color with small, beige head. Slightly sweet, hoppy aroma with rye-pudding. Very malty, rye-pudding flavor. Full-bodied, syrupy palate with very well-balanced carbonation. A very nice, sweet and malty brew.
