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.

Douberd (3457) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2015
(Het Kapittel Watou Pater) Bottle 330 ml at home, served intoone of those tulip-snifter hybrid glasses, ABV 6% Deep chestnut brown colour on the body, clear, with a good sized and thock enough tan head on top, with very good retention. Sweet caramel smell, medicinal alcohol although this is only 6%, light toffee. Taste is sweet and it has caramel, metallic notes, some red and dark fruits. Medium thin body, low carbonation, dry palate. Okay, a bit boring.

Huuug (4) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2015 does not count
An ok beer: nice dark colour but less palate than i expected (maybe because i thought i was drinking the stronger kapittel after seeing the colour): a bit of caramel and yeast, medium body, thin feel, and dull finish.

Batavi (191) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2015
Uitgeschonken in Gouden Carolus bokaal. Roodbruin troebel bier met kortstondige beige schuimkraag, die terugzakt tot een fijne ring, gistdeeltjes zweven onderin het glas. Zachte aroma’s van geroosterde mout, karamel, gedroogde pruimen en rozijnen. De smaak is zacht zoet bitter met tonen van; karamel, rozijnen, specerijen en Belgische gist. De carbonatie is levendig, de afdronk is droog, medium lang en kruidig. De Kapittel Pater is een mooie dubbel, met een krachtige uitgebalanceerde smaak, ondanks het vrij lage alcoholpercentage.

Aniela (4195) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2015
From my backlogg: Draught at Pressklubben, Stockholm. Kinda murky shit colocred beer with an offwhite head. Malty, fruity and hoppy aroma. Fruity, malty flavour. Not that exciting beer...
