I did not care for this beer at all. I think that there is way too much chocolate going on in this medium complex brew.

Butelka 330 ml . Ciemnobrazowa barwa. Pianalekko palona,obfita o duzych pecherzach opada dosc szybko. W aromacie palone alody karmel lekkie drozdze w tle. W smaku karmel toffi palone slody lekki chlebowy posmak . Ogolnie dosc slodkawe z miodowo-chlebowa nuta. Smakuje . Moje oznaczone jako 6,5%.

DanielBrown (4474) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2017
Bottle from Lidl - 4 for a fiver (ish). This one were 6,5%, but deffo labelled as Pater. Ok Bruin, maybe an average Dubbel actually. The taste is ok, but it was way too fizzy. Each normal sized gobful, resulted in a rancorous belch. Not too sociable. Better than breaking wind though. This is probably a good beer. Might open another and let it go flat for a bit before necking.

GeorgePratt (67) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2017
Aroma of banana and dried fruits. Pours a thick brown with a medium to large tan head. Extremely moorish taste of fruit and spice, slightly sweet. Finish is creamy, spicy and lip smacking. Phenomenal.

Dark brown color. Medium to high carbonation. Aroma had a touch of barnyard funk, some caramel, spices. Low sweetness, touch of roast, nutty and spicy flavor, noticeable hops, much more than normal for the style, strong boozy finish. Overall very balanced. Was very good, but lacked the complexity of its brothers, yet, it wasnt so obsenly phenolic, so I think it is a good starter dubbel.

nephirem (436) - CROATIA - APR 1, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. 6.5% ABV. Deep amber pour with one finger creamy off-white head. Average head retention, good lacing. Strong nose, sugary sweet with intense caramel, slightly herbal. Medium body, slightly aggressive carbonation. Average texture, somewhat light palate. Bittersweet taste. Aroma is herbal liquor, slight honey, very subtle cocoa. Brown sugar, not aggressive. Quite pronounced caramel presence, toffee, alcohol. Flowery, herbal. Slight mint in the aftertaste. Dry finish with notable alcohol presence. Overall, tasty dubbel. Quality brew.

FrancoisMartin (3) - Nancy, FRANCE - MAR 18, 2017 does not count
Nez : Caf. Couleur : noir, mousse dense onctueuse. Texture douce et soyeuse. Lgre carbonation Gout : Lgre et furtive acidit en entr sur le bout de la langue, un peu dpices, puis viens une amertume qui monte crescendo, notes de caf, caramel et malts grills. Accords : Dgust avec un petit basque. Le gras du fromage se mari parfaitement a la scheresse de cette Corsendonk. Le fromage manquais juste un peu de puissance.

midovark (796) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - MAR 15, 2017
Bottled. Pours deep brown with off-white head. Roasted malts, coffee and some other notes that make its aroma brown ale-ish. Sweet taste with the samr notes and very flat carbonation. Light bodied, easily drinkable.

Bire brune, limite rubis, trs mousseuse, une odeur de fruits rouges, un peu dacidit dans larme. Elle est assez ptillante, un peu astringente, un got mtallique, pas trop damertume, ce got ferreux reste en fin de bouche. Bire pas mauvaise mais pas transcendantale, elle sort de lordinaire mais je ne recommande pas
