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.

Clear reddish/brown beer. Smells roasted malt, sugarcane, mollasses, bread yeast. Flavor is sweet malt. Didn’t like considering this should be a dark ale. Ok, it is quite carbonated but the body is too light. I missed something in there.

Lighter version of Het Kapittel Dubbel with the same colour, but paler head and more chocolatey malts in the aroma; spicy yeasty notes, candied fruits, dryer palate with hoppier finish than the Dubbel and actually this makes it a bit better, at least to my personal taste.

Small notes of honey on the nose. Shiny copper brown, faint tastes of dark berries, masked by bitterness and spice. Nice palate, lingering finish.

VDuquerroux (268) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dull mahogany beer with brown hues at the bottom of my glass. Medium white head. Poor persistence. Fruity aroma (quince), spices, honey, caramel. Spicy sweetness balanced by some refreshing bitterness. Medium body and texture. Good carbonation. Lasting bitter finish with a warming note. Overall, I liked this beer : great aroma !
