Bought this in a mixed 4 pack, including a Bernardus chalice. Had my doubts when the cashier reached for a tissue to wipe off the dust... so I asked her how long it had been on the shelves and got a reassuring answer. Hopefully, the remaining 3 brews, at higher ABV, have not lost their flavor. The bottle says ’best before end’ and is dated 08 07 17 and here we are at 05 29 17. This one didn’t make it. Very disappointing selection from an otherwise quality bottle shop. beton (621) - Tarnobrzeg, POLAND - MAY 19, 2017

Originally rated on 12/24/08. The first offering from my christmas gift 4 pack. It poured a beautiful ruby light brown body with a thin off white cap. Aroma was kinda average because there very, very slight hints of malt, banana, cinnamon, with some fruit. Flavor was better with the fruit and spices and the malt finish showing a bit more. overall it was a pretty decent brew, very drinkable. djcampbell (260) - Moravany, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 28, 2017
Pohodové a zajímavé pivo s krásnou nasládlou vůní a jemným řízem.. Chuťově hodně dobré. Manslow (1661) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 19, 2017
Butelka 0,33l. pite w domu. Kolor bursztynowy, mętny, piana solidna trzyma się dobrze. Aromat owocowy z lekkim zapachem skórek chlebowych. Rześkie w smaku, owocowe ze śliwkami suszonymi na pierwszym planie. Lekkie, nie czuć alkoholu, przyjemne w piciu.

Pater 6 is most appropriately described with adjectives like "rustic," "cohesive," and - big surprise here - "Belgian." This Abbey Dubbel pours a brown color that reveals a dark amber when held to the light. Malty, nutty, and fruity aromas. Hazelnut, caramel apple, chocolate, brown sugar, and raising showed up in my tasting. Soft, mostly sweet palate with just a hint of hops. Lovely.

This is a complex rather busy chestnut coloured beer; perhaps the 6.7 ABV accounts for the smallish head that quickly became a thin layer but stays the course.
As I nose the beer there is the typical Belgian yeastiness, dark fruits and caramel perhaps a little herbal note.
I raise the glass to find it's highly carbonated and fizzes in the mouth - it's a little thinner than I expected for a darker beer but medium smooth.
Yeast and fruit come in rapid succession with a spirited but not over bitter slightly herbal background (just about where I like it) that takes its time teasing the tongue. Then mellowing out to a balanced brown sugar and caramel aftertaste, but wait for it... when that's faded the herbal bitterness takes on a sharp metallic edge (remember boiled sweet acid drops?) and goes on and on and.... azzurro (288) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2017
Again, part of the holiday 6-pack, not the best of the pack, but definitely above average. Eastwood (355) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 6, 2017
Tomada en el Kraken de caña.
Rojiza, suave, dulce de caramelo y pasas.
La St Bernardus Prior 8 y Abt 12 son superiores.
Esta es la hermana pequeña.
Facil de beber.
Poca graduacion. ChadPoole (478) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2017
Pours ruby colour with a big off white head. Aroma is dark fruits, bread, carmel and honey. Dark fruit and brown sugar flavours with a light bitter and full body. Good but not great.
