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.

YigSvartka (269) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 25, 2016
Opaque ruby brown hue with a mid sized beige head. Robust aroma consisting of caramel, brown sugar, licorice, dried plum and berries. Full bodied and extremely malt forward. Flavour profile remains true to the aroma. Rich, decadent, and delicious.

Samuel214 (321) - SWEDEN - APR 17, 2016
Flaska från Beergium. Mörkgrumlig mörk mahognybrun med högt fluffigt beiget skum. Doft av torkad och övermogen frukt; torkade plommon, johannesbröd, russin, lite inlagda körsbär, skumbanan. Halvstor kropp, något torr. Torrheten balanserar upp sötman fint, liksom även den avslutande beskan. Lite choklad, muscovadosocker och kola i smaken med. Riktigt bra. Skulle nog göra sig riktigt bra av att ligga ner ett par år eller mer.

Rask0lnikov (435) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 15, 2016
Ruby brown colour. Slight layer of white froth on top. Barley in the aroma. Bready beginning. Slight sweetness in the middle. Hints of caramel in the end and some alcohol. Quite well balanced, but not so interesting abbey beer. Quite well drinkable thow.

Aroma esteroso de la leva y caramelo Buen color y carbónatacion correcta con espuma dejando encaje de Bruselas En boca maltosa y caramelo con un final seco y amargo que equilibra el trago ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

peponi (1233) - Mainz, GERMANY - APR 8, 2016
Aroma: red apples, fruits, esters, roasted dark malts. Appearance: slightly hazy amber color and white head. Taste: peachy, belgian phenols, red apples, roasted dark malts, warming alcohol, quite dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, roasted finish. Overall: Strange, far away from being an abbey dubbel.
