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.

Ungstrup (31452) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2002
A light brown beer with no head. The aroma is an OK fruity ale aroma. But the flavor is much more powerful, with a nice sweetness of a great maltblend and with only a slight bitterness. A really good beer - next time I don’t want to share it.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark amber, with a big, brownish head. Very full-bodied and aromatic from the malts. Some fruitiness and light, sweet caramel - but overall the dryness dominates. Very discreet hops in the finish. 091197

omhper (21886) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2003
Bottled. Pours hazy burgundy. Aroma of drued fruit. Complex flavour - caramel, raisins and even coffee. Dryish, but sweeter than their Prior, and also lighter in body. Still it's malty, and with a pleasant soft mouthfeel. The finish is bitter and hoppy.
