Diabobale (225) - ITALY - NOV 11, 2014
Rispetto alla Pater 6, la prior 8 è molto più matura. Colore marrone, con un corpo ben strutturato, una buona presenza di malti, risulta essere molto corposa e rotornda e vellutata alla bevuta

shaynsawchuk (538) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
330 mL bottle. Pours clear; deep mahogany with a thick cap of creamy off white head. Big malts up front, more bread than caramel. Light toffee leads into honeyed fig, overripe banana, molasses. Earthy-spicy Belgian yeast. Mild spicy-Old World hopping. A little sweet with just enough bitter hop to balance out on the drier side. Smooth, moderate to full bodied with high carbonation. Silky-creamy with great sustain. Just a hint of alcohol heat.

Braun, schaumig. Dunkle Früchte, Hefe, dunkler Zucker, leicht alkoholisch. Am Gaumen dunkle Früchte, Malz, Röstnoten, brauner Zucker, herb. Vollmundig.

lesifflebiere (1331) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
Une bière très mousseuse, d’un brun intense, avec un nez de fruits confits et de caramel. La bouche est riche, intense, avec les saveurs qui rejoignent les fruits et le sucre pré-mentionnés, mais l’alcool est bien dissimulé, rajoutant à peine un peu de complexité au mélange, sans distraire de l’ensemble. Le tout peut sembler un peu sec pour ce style, par contre. Au final, une excellente bière, une très bonne dubbel, mais pas parmi l’élite mondiale selon ce buveur.

ChristianHR (191) - DENMARK - NOV 8, 2014
Pours hazelnut brown with a white head. Has a nice sweet smell of caramel, burnt sugar, yeast and something earthy. The taste is very fruity but with something roasted. I get some dried fruits, nuts, burnt sugar, and some dark chocolate. The mouth feel is very siruppy.

rejtable (1399) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2014
This is great. Pours slightly murky brown lots of foamy head and minimal lacing. Nose is caramel and some fruit. Flavours of plums, some caramel, Cheerios hint of tang and brown bread. Taste light/med sweet light bitter. Medium body, somewhat silky with medium carbonation.

gregorymconway (127) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
330ml bottle from the LCBO. Brown body, off-white head. Earthy, wood, some dark fruit on the nose. The real beauty of this beer comes in the palate. It has a wonderfully sessionable and satiating body that is unparalleled. Some bitterness and alcohol presence in the finish, alcohol comes in a nice subtle warmth on the finish only.

Bork (318) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Decidedly fruity but drier and more able bodied than its smaller brother Pater 6. Noticeable yeast and a fair bit of acidity. Long fruity finish.

mjansen1310 (34) - Soest, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle. Dark Brown, white head. Taste is with coffee, nuts and caramel. This all combines to a nice drinkable beer. After one you probably want another one!
