Rich but also very smooth. Great strong dark ale. Proof that an abbey-style beer can be just as good as the beer made at actual monasteries.

Bottle 330ml from the local taphouse. Great aromas, with malt and yeast dominating. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, butterscotch, and bread. Taste is sweet, with sour notes, and very long lasting. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.

Most outstanding. Oddly named, in that Pater tend to be tripels... In any event, a very fine Brune and Karmaliet. A favourite.

Rich. Great strong dark reddish beer. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, dark fruits and port wine. Sweet Tastes with sour notes. Palate is well bodied with some chocolate, port wine. With a lightly bitter finish. Excellent. One of my favourites. Especially when it’s aged.

fata2683 (2202) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 15, 2008
bottle from a shop in Liege. Pours brown with shades of red and almost no head, looks awesome. Smells sweet and sour, slightly spicy. Taste wonderfully sweet and bitter coming to a nice clean sweet finish that lingers on the back of the tongue. A light alcohol burn comes into play as it warms but I think it only makes it better by bringing out some dark fuity character in the backround. Complex and delicious.
