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.

My favorite of the Kapittel beers. I find it is at its best when room temperature--at colder temperatures, metallic and stale notes are present. The flavor is wonderful. Gentle caramel maltiness (less caramel than in the Prior, which gives this the edge) with wood notes and some cinammon. Lush body indicates that this is real Belgian. Not enormously complex, but still one of the finer light Abbey browns.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2006
Copper with a thick light brown head. Lots of wood notes in the aroma, strong spice, rich malt and some background yeast. That is delicious! This is a beer I would love to have on tap on a regular basis. Warm malt, touch of caramel toffee, thick spice and a gentle palate

reddragon (29) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Bottle-pour... color is muddy copper-brown. Aroma is similiar to other Abbey-style brews. Flavor is slightly sugary, malty, with some grassiness. Delicious. A great Abbey-style beer for anytime drinking. Does not require a special occasion.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2003 Dark coloured with rapidly disappearing head (perhaps due to the glass). Tastes stronger than it actually is.

330ml bottle brought back from Belgium in a Duvel glass. Deep, bright brown. A wonderful aroma of malt, caramel and dried fruit. Flavour is along the same lines, sweet and malty with lots of caramel fruit, mild bitter finish. Last bit (with the sediment in) has a slightly yeasty character to it. Slight stale edge loses this a couple of points. Probably the best thing I’ve had from this brewery yet, reminds me of Gordon’s Scotch.

eManu (535) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2009
Pours a deap dark red brown color with a nice thick tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, grapes and caramels. The flavors are rich, strong roasted malts with coffee and grapes, sweet and bitter at the same time, a very nice balance of flavors. Good carbonation. A very pleasant beer that will make you want more for sure.

omhper (23731) - 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.

skortila (5342) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2004 Very strong vanille aroma, sweet, caramel/malty. Cloudy dark brown colour, lasting head. Sweet malty, well balanced caramel malty flavour. Smooth palate. Much like an english ale. Very decent brew!
