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.

Bottle, ~4 years old. Pours woody, mahogany brown, old caramelized nose, bit wooden and dusty. Still good, but rather one dimensional, a bit sweet and dull.

kaserov (224) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 23, 2016
Color marrón oscuro con reflejos rojizos, medianamente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación a tope. Restos de fermentación en la botella. Aroma a levadura y frutal, típico de doble pero no muy prominente. El sabor, como ha dicho Rhombic, es primero frutal pero luego muta a una malta tostada y algo de caramelo. Hay también alguna fruta por ahí perdida que me recuerda a las Rochefort. En algún trago me ha quedado un regusto metálico del que no estoy muy seguro y que bien puede ser cosa mía. Rica pero sin pasarnos.

thanatosti (1501) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2016
33 cl. bottle @ Rick. Light brown with a beige head. Malty caramel aroma with some yeast. Taste is caramelsweet. Body is quite thin. Not bad at alle but too thin and bland to be really enjoyable.

Rhombic (118) - SPAIN - JUL 10, 2016
[Oops, got two mixed up for the previous rating] Pours brown with tan head. Peach, grape, underlying hops and malt in aroma. Starts fruity and crisp, but evolves towards a toasted malt, caramel and wood in the finish. Medium body, maybe a tad milder. Oily, nice complex finish, long and interesting.

Clear dark amber, creamy offwhite head. Malty aroma, light notes of fruit. Caramely flavour, malty and somewhat fruity. Nutty, dry and bitter finish. Boring.

kapusil (1202) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2016
0.33l bottle. Hazy dark orange body, thin white head. Aroma of orange zest, dark sugar, toast and some floral hops. Taste of orange zest, caramel, toast, cherries and some grassy hops. OK beer, but nothing special for me.

Lore (2211) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 5, 2016
hazy lighter brown colour, medium sized dense beige-ish head; aroma of dried plum and figs, toffee, earthy-banyard-like notes and some walnut; taste is the same with much less intensiveness and some rye-bready notes; drinkable, but definitely not among the best dubbels

bonkiedeaap (644) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is dark amber colored and a stable creamy head, with average carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity, with tones of dark fruits, caramel and brown sugar. The taste is light sweet with a light sourness from some fruits and ends with some spicy bitterness, with tones of licorice. The finish is dry and light bitter.
