This name became a reference. This beer is mostly pointed out with its product name: “a Paterke”. This “Paterke” is a chestnut coloured dark beer with a high fermentation (6.7 alcohol content) and a full taste.

Suttree (5928) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Muddy brown, thin beige head. aroma of red aples and molasses, mixed with a bit of rum. Flavor is molasses and fruit, like maybe figs or prunes. Surprisng amount of alcohol heat for 6.7% beer. Nice earthy, rough finish.

MrBunn (2675) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2008
Bottle. Pours a deep brown with some light pouring through and a two finger or so head that is fairly dense. Has aromas that are woody and nutty with a bit of bread dough, yeast and spice. Flavor is a little different, however, as it mixes dark fruit, sawdust, allspice and rye bread. Thought this would be much different, although this is pretty darn acceptable.

I would expect nothing less from St Bernardus. Taste of sweet fruit, caramel, malt. Mid to full bodied and yet easily drinkable.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2008 0.33l bottle, pale brown pour with tan head. Quite light for a "dark"; beer, fruity, sweet and caramel flavours, some malt, no alcohol. Very enjoyable and full of flavour.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2008
Bottle, Stirchley Wines and Spirits, Birmingham. Poured a hazy brown colour with a dissipating white head.. Some fruit, yeast and spice in the aroma. Flavour was sweetish and malty. Some dark fruit and spice in there somewhere. Carbonation was a bit on the heavy side. Nothing special on the whole and expected a lot more.

Capa (2566) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2008
Melted caramel in color with a medium, tan head. Fruity aroma backed by malts, spices, light molasses, and a touch of sourness. Full bodied with lively carbonation. Very flavorful. Spicy yeast, malts, caramel, and some fruit as well. While I wouldn’t call it earth shattering it’s a very solid belgian.

DietPepsican (1583) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUN 14, 2008
cola brown pour with a medium sized dirty white head. Aroma is up front pear and heavy malt. Flavor is caramel, pear, orange, kiwi, and a bit of spice. Finishes prickly carbonated, very easy to drink for the style. No hint of any booze, lightly refreshing which is weird for the flavors I am getting.

ketchepillar (1184) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUN 13, 2008
Beautiful head. Simple, yet complex. Or rather, there are a variety nice flavors & aromas that blend perfectly together to make one solid profile, however when analyzed delicious moderately sweet bready caramel malt lays flat and soft on the tongue, while grapes among other fresh fruits coupled with an interesting, yet very gentle yeast character floats harmoniously above. Decently smooth on the carbonation, but a tad too thin and watery.

kidmartinek (4447) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Deep cloudy brown, huge tan foamy head. Strong aroma of dark sugar, malple, nut, fig, barely, and yeast. Very nice complex aroma. Flavor is like a high quality strong pilsener, with the skunky hops. Also tastes like roasted caramel barely malt, and raw brown sugar. The feel of this beer is good and refreshing, and nicely carbonated on the taste. Refreshing, full, finish with a nice bite.
