EithCubes (5208) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Bottle. Murky brown pour with a fantastic, fluffy and lacing stable tan head. Smells sweet, spicy, yeasty, and fruity, a little orange peel with the malt. Rich, sweet and very spicy flavor, malty and only a tad warming. Also a tad too thin. A touch of wood with that delicious spiciness. Medium-dry. Very pleasant and extremely easy to drink, but needs more concentration and flavor.

Went backwards drinking this after the abt 12, first thing I noticed was it has a higher carbonation, less alcohol and not nearly as complex, Amber in color, hints of caramel and candy, creamy with a long aftertaste.

gferd (99) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Very dark brown; preposterously huge, brown head, fast dwindling. Chocolate malt, mintsoap, touch woody in the nose. Sharp woody flavour to start with, then soft sweet malt comes adrift under a sharper roasted profile. Still some chocolate. Rather flat, dead mouthfeel, it’s as if the beer’s tired. Shame, because quite OK so far. Not thin, however. Not bad overall, but its bigger brothers are way more interesting.

Pours cloudy brown with a thin white head. Notes of banana, almond, plums, and honey. A little bite in the finish. Good beer.

Dark brown/amber colour. Aroma is sweet and a bit fruity. Flavor is nice, a bit sweet and fruity. Nice.

Skinnyviking (7626) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2006
Bottle. Off-white lasting head. Hazy dark amber body. Fruity honey caramel aroma. Sweet caramel flavor with almost no bitterness.

Great. I like everything this brewer makes. Great Abbey ales with loads of good flavor. I may have liked the Abt 12 and Prior 8 a little more, but it’s so hard to judge. They all have great qualities.

(Bottle) I agree with Poperinge, the Pater 6 somewhat seems like a watery Abt 12. This isn’t a bad thing though, as the Pater 6 is still quite tasteful and delicious.<!-- /br -->The beer pours cloudy brown with offwhite creamy head. Notes of honey, spicy herbs, figs, molasse & hops combine to perfection and actually makes this beer very enjoyable!

Yum, this was some good stuff, although not what I was expecting. If Smithwick’s went Belgian, this is what it would taste like. Nice honest bitter finish to a malty (some caramel) and slightly burnt base. Only light candy sugar and spicing was present and this one was bready and yeasty. The pour was nice red-brownish color with a small but creamy head that didn’t change for the entire drink.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2006
Brown-red coloured, some carbonation with a large off-white head. Fruity, malty and caramel aroma, light sweet and nice balanced. Full creamy taste. Finish is sweet with a light bitter touch caramel and a little alcohol. When the yeast of the bottom of the bottle is poored out, more hazey brown colour and a deeper dough yeasty aroma, rather long aftertaste. NIce and good beer.
