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.

brnandersen (3205) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2015
33 cl. bottle, courtesy from Dad, thanks! Hazy, dark amber colour with a thin, off-white head. Sweet aroma with caramel, bread, fruity-yeasty notes and subtle grasses. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes slightly dry and fruity with caramel malts, yeasts and dark, dried fruits. A pleasent Dubbel.

jamaty (1777) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Precioso color ámbar tostado. Poca espuma. Buen aroma a caramelo, melocoton y hierbas. En boca, cuerpo medio y muy cremosa. Excelente tono acaramelado y frutal, con un final seco y especiado.

NOTA DE CATA: - Vista: Het Kapittel Pater presenta un color tostado oscuro pero transparente, con espuma delicada y frágil. - Nariz: El aroma ligeramente afrutado del principio se transforma en malta tostada. - Boca: Estas maltas también dominan el sabor al principio, pero dan lugar después a un sabor bastante neutral como un dulzor agradable y un ligero toque de amargo al final.

The alcohol-sugar balance in this beer is way off, giving this a cloying, sticky aftertaste. Tasteless artwork from the ubiquitous Belgian school of kitsch.

Hamirubi (547) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2015
10cl sample at the Zythos Beer Festival (Leuven, April 25th 2015), as the 6.0% "Vintage Kapittel Pater November 2008 (brouwerij het Sas-Van Eecke)". A sweet brew, but with an iron aftertaste due to the oxidation process.

Even though this is not a very strong beer, it will knock you off your feet: and that’s a good thing. Very enjoyable without it having too strong of a taste.
