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.

Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is a nice dark fruit with a bit of fruity yeasty ester. Flavor is equal. A decent dark malty, dark fruit with a bit of fruitness from the yeast. Nothing to make it stand out but its decent and a beginner beer to dark Belgain styles.

jolo (843) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle. A light hazy dark amber colour with a small head. An aroma of furit esters and caramels. The taste is medium sweet and light bitter. A complex and well balanced beer.

heavy (2075) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 16, 2012
28/11 On tap @Cimmeria, Oviedo. My notes said Kapittel Dubbel, 6% ABV. So, it poured clear copper body with medium sized head. Weak, slightly caramel and vinous aroma. Flavor was sweet, too cloying, caramel, sugar, some fruits. Medium to fuller in body with moderate sweet finish. Not really bad, but just another boring dubbel that lacks any form of character or complexity, plus it was too sweet for my taste.

Aroma is malts, yeast and a hint of chlorine. The flavor is mildly nutty malts, dark fruit and a dryish finish.

Shaney (2429) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2012
#671 Mittelbraun und reichlich trüb mit viel Schaum. Süßliches Malzaroma. Im Geschmack auch primär malzig süß und nur minimal würzig. Für 6% Alk. geradezu erfrischend leichter Genuß. Insgesamt der Probe wert, wenn es auch an Charakter mangelt. Test vom 17.5.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,9,10,9,10,9 - 9,10

Temptation (208) - - OCT 24, 2012
Reddish copper colour with a medium pale brown head, well formed. Low carbonation and low lace. Aroma to spices, fruits and yeast. Yeast, alcohol and bitterness are very present in mouth too, which flavours are discreet and sometimes confused. Malts, grain, maybe citrics and a smooth sweetness. In my opinion, is a correct abbey dubbel, but little more else. The watery texture and medium body don’t help, though the medium development and elegant end are notable. Good, but a little bit plain and bland. It lacks something, and in its style there are very much better beers.
