I drink this “Pater” in remembrance of Father Dan O’Sullivan at St. Irenaeus, who married me to my wife and baptized our kids, who enjoyed any beer I brought him and with whom I shared my first DFH WWS. Pours deep brown with a big head that needed some time to settle. Nice smell of raisins and plums, with sweetness emanating from the glass. After that buildup, the taste actually runs a little light. Sweetness is NOT that heavy. Instead, like a modest ale, it simply delivers a nice blend of malt and some nearly German-type hop sharpness. Lot of chunky foam and lace sticking around the glass. Fruitiness not as apparent in the taste. This bottle, at least, slides in more like a basic fine ale. And that’s just fine by me.

jacobarts (99) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown with huge tan head. Aroma is classic belgian, yeast and dark fruits. Taste is mild. Dark fruits, yeast and some bread. Mild beer, in this style a bit anonymous taste in my opinion.

Ganska vit krona som är bra! Grumlig mörk sirapsfärg, doften är söt, brödig, mörk sirap som också går igenom smaken med en jäst smak av kolsyra och viss humlighet ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fantti (942) - FINLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Pullo @ Bierpaleis, Brugge. Kaatuu lasiin punertavan ruskeana ja hieman sameana, vaahto on parin sormen paksuinen ja melko pysyvä. Tuoksussa on makeaa sokerisuutta, kuivattua hedelmää ja mausteisuutta. Maussa on makeaa kuivattua hedelmää, puppurista mausteisuutta, mutta loppu on vähän tyhjä. Suutuntuma on makeahko, hiilihappoinen ja suht kepeä. Dubbel on vähän tylsä tyyli ja monesti ylimakea, mutta tämä onnistui välttämään sen. Loppumaku on valitettavasti vähän tyhjän oloinen.

Belle robe brune avec reflets rouge rubie et mousse ivoire peu persistante . Bonne carbonatation.Arômes de vin qui apparaissent très vite en début de nez puis s’estompent pour laisser la place aux céréales.En bouche arrivent des saveurs maltées,fruitées et épicées avec une douce amertume. Une bière agréable et fraîche pour une brune Dubbel qui nous laisse sur une note houblonnée !

Dégustée dans un verre Maredsous. Robe brune cuivrée, carbonatation très faible et mousse beige fine mais assez tenace. Le nez est levuré avec quelques arômes d’épices. Le goût continue sur une levure(une saveur que je n’apprécie pas habituellement!) qui se révèle agréable. La brasserie conseille de boire entre 6° et 10° mais je pense qu’il est bon de prendre son temps et de laisser un peu réchauffer... Du coup une douceur bienvenue fait son apparition et amène des touches de caramel. L’arrière bouche est de longueur moyenne et légère avec une petite amertume appréciable. Une très bonne double.

Style et résumé: Double classique (benchtmark).
Comment: Bouteille de 33cl. A 24 08 17
Description: Un liquide brun noisette translucide. Une belle mousse beige à grosses bulles se dresse au sommet. Un nez d’épices, clou, fruits confits, sucre brun. Une bouche tout aussi épicée, avec des fruits secs et une touche de sucre. Une des deux bouteilles avait des goûts de contamination.
Note: 7+/10
