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.

Bit like the Kapittel dubbel, but less full and therefore also a bit less tasty.

tricksta_p (1588) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2014
Pours a mahogony brown beer with a beige head. Aroma of dark malts, caramel, toffee, dark fruits, spices. Flavour is malty sweetness, brown sugar, raisins. Some spicy bitterness in the finish. Really enjoyed this one, for me a bit above the average Dubbel.

Clear dark ruby with lacing light brown foam head. Aroma is caramel dominated, but not too sweet. Likewise taste, a decent bit strong DUBBEL. nice aftertaste, bit sweer. (Velp 201401)

Moravius (708) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2013
UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 Flasche (33 cl), 9 Monate im heimischen Keller gelagert. - Orangebraun. - Im Antrunk Röstmalz und angenehm säuerlich-pikante Fruchtigkeit (helle Weintrauben?) in perfekter Harmonie. Auch Karamel, aber wenig süß; eher schlank. Gut rezent. Im trockenen, leicht adstringierenden, mild krautig-hopfenherben Abgang eine ganz zarte Mokkanote. - Perfekte Kombination von herb-schlanker Fruchtigkeit und Röstmalz. Sehr lecker und geradezu erfrischend.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2013
0,33 l bottle from Fish&Beer, København. An amber to brown pour. Low stable off-white top. Initial aroma of stale hops, offset by a scent of caramel malts and fortified wine. Medium full. Sweet, failrly clean malt flavor. A light earthyness and hint of mild spices and fruit. Not a benchmark Dubbel, but goes well down.

mathieuc (1731) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 Pours a clear brown with a thin offwhite head that offers great retention and lacing. Nose of raw malt sugar (unfermented wort) and grain husks. Strange. Taste is sweet and feels underattenuated overall. Flavors of sweet fresh wort again and not much else. Well, maybe some light fruitiness. Body is medium as is the carbonation level. Not sure if something went wrong with this beer or it was intended. An average brew overall.

2014-10-21: A second bottle proved better so I’m bumping score from 2.8 to 3.1. Not sure what was wrong with the other bottle, really...

freretoc (982) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 19, 2013
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, une mousse brune qui tient bien et une robe brune presqu’en ambrée. J’ai trouvé cette bière décevante. Un petit côté grillé en début de bouche, puis une acidité trop forte reste derrière ce qui gâche la bière du début à la fin. Pas top

Pringao_Toribi (292) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2013
Kind of the low alcohol version of a abbey beer, not bad but in comparision with another trappist and belgian beers its a little ill flavoured. For cap collectors: green cap with a white aureola and with the imprint of a monk and the words "Pater watou"

Minderbinder (2218) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle 330ml. Pours deep amber/mahogany with very low beige "head". Aroma is of malt, sugar, fruits, slight candi. Taste is of malt, sugar, fruits, some bitterness, yeast, some candi. Palate: Medium body. Overall: Not fantastic. Nice belgian yeast features, but it’s about all.
