Lore (2563) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 5, 2016
hazy lighter brown colour, medium sized dense beige-ish head; aroma of dried plum and figs, toffee, earthy-banyard-like notes and some walnut; taste is the same with much less intensiveness and some rye-bready notes; drinkable, but definitely not among the best dubbels

bonkiedeaap (721) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is dark amber colored and a stable creamy head, with average carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity, with tones of dark fruits, caramel and brown sugar. The taste is light sweet with a light sourness from some fruits and ends with some spicy bitterness, with tones of licorice. The finish is dry and light bitter.

Bill Becker (949) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - APR 14, 2016
Pours a mostly clear mahogany colour with an inch of off white foam that does okay with the lacing. Smells of caramel malt, hints of fruit like apple, candi sugar and what I sense. .Cardboard. Yep, it starts off on the sweet side with the caramel and candi sugar, gets a bit fruity and then the cardboard moves in and spoils the session. Not good. Pretty light bodied and the carbonation is fine. I couldnt find a date of any kind on the label or the bottle; thinking this is not all that fresh. Oh well.

33cl bottle shared with my dad. He loved it. Basement aromas and toast. Slightly sour but metallic. Sweet nontheless. A little nutty.

Franckg (1540) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2016
Robe brune trouble surmonte dun col de mousse beige et onctueux. Armes de caramel, levures poivres, herbes, pruneaux, citron. Bue aprs plus dun an en bouteille et a commence peut-tre se faire sentir. En bouche, a ne samliore pas. Du malt caramlis et citronn, gazon, zeste dorange, quelques fruits sucrs schs. Finale faisant plus penser une pilsner... Texture onctueuse mais un corps mince. Jumel un lger manque de saveurs, ce nest pas super.

Bottle to glass. Dried fruit nose, lots of plum and raisin. Murky reddish brown pour with small white head. Taste follows with a creamy mouthfeel yet a dry finish. Decent.

Het Kapittel Pater er en Abbey Ale, der som de andre ale i denne serie kan spore deres historie tilbage til klosteret i Watou i 1629. llet har en lidt sdlig smag, som bl.a. skyldes malten og de 2 varianter af humle. llet er mrkt, fyldigt og har en lang og lidt bitter eftersmag, som dog er behagelig.
