Sigmund (7126) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2006
330 ml bottle, bought in Frederikshavn, Denmark, as "Kapittel Watou Pater" (no "Het" on the label anymore). Clear and beautiful reddish brown colour, large and lasting light tan head. Nice malty aroma with notes of caramel and bakery, hints of wood, Christmas spices and dark fruits. Flavour is malty sweet but also fruity and zesty, quite nice. Some spices in the background. Definitely not a bad beer, but a tad too sweet to make me ecstatic.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2006
Copper with a thick light brown head. Lots of wood notes in the aroma, strong spice, rich malt and some background yeast. That is delicious! This is a beer I would love to have on tap on a regular basis. Warm malt, touch of caramel toffee, thick spice and a gentle palate

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2006
Bottle. Reddish garnet with tufty beige head. lager-bock yeast bread rum-malt fruit aroma. Surprisingly rather sweet, the first impression is so sweet that it could be syrupy sweet soft drink! To baad cause the looks and aroma are right but, thats so sweet that the flavor is missing! At least, its a kind of honey bready sweetness, with malty grain flavors that come apparent on multiple sips. A bit of a let down but, not a totally terrible beer by any means.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2006
Cloudy reddish hue, neath a big, rocky, puffy head, cocoa-tinted... Yeasty, spicy aroma, very Belgian...apples and cherries...baking bread. the muffins are rising...and getting down with the fruit. Taste: Baked apples, bright berries, raisin roundies, ...nice yeast and juicy malt...tidy hops...noiceness, indeed, with frankly fat malt, and yummy yeast. Yummy, yummy...what more need be said...I like it. It works. Id have another. Please?

gnoff (9906) - Mlndal, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2006
Bottle at Delirium Caf in Gothenburg. My bottle said "Kapittel Watou PAter Ale". Dark amber color, big beige head. Typical Belgian ale scent. Low to none bitterness, fruity taste. Rather big body. A nice fresh Belgian ale that I can have more of.

MoreHead (355) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2006
nice copper brown appearance with heavily visible carbonation and nice white head. aroma is of sweet lemon candy, think theyre called lemonheads. flavor is nicely balanced with malt, citrus, and spice. finish with some hops, may have been better with a little more alcohol bite.

2003 - Brown clear body, red shine, huge fluffy beige head, some laces; Not all that big a nose, lacks depth and complexity, a little metallic, brown sugar, not fat but on the other hand a bit fresh; Medium sharp carbonation, soft texture, balanced; Into long a bit malty sharp finish that also has a very little bitter hop together with some brown sugar.

Skinnyviking (9243) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2006
Bottle. Off-white high and lasting head. Hazy ruby body. First impression of aroma is spicy roasted malt, later it seems fruity. It is rather sweet with a flavor of berries and sugar.
