I drink this “Pater” in remembrance of Father Dan O’Sullivan at St. Irenaeus, who married me to my wife and baptized our kids, who enjoyed any beer I brought him and with whom I shared my first DFH WWS. Pours deep brown with a big head that needed some time to settle. Nice smell of raisins and plums, with sweetness emanating from the glass. After that buildup, the taste actually runs a little light. Sweetness is NOT that heavy. Instead, like a modest ale, it simply delivers a nice blend of malt and some nearly German-type hop sharpness. Lot of chunky foam and lace sticking around the glass. Fruitiness not as apparent in the taste. This bottle, at least, slides in more like a basic fine ale. And that’s just fine by me.

0.33 l bottle from Koht Õllepood, Tallinn, Estonia. Appearance is brown, cloudy and with a huge white head. Aroma has dark chocolate. Taste is sweet and dry with chocolate flavour. Well, this is the closest you can get to Westvleteren 6 since it is not being brewed any more.

Gräsig arom med en aning svart te. Metall, gräs med jordig avslutning. Ganska vattnig och intetsägande.

330 ml bottle served in abbey glass. Dark brown with big creamy head. Raisins, rum, dried fruits, caramel, dark chocolate. Malty, sweet, metallic, slightly bitter. Nice alcoholic warmth. Medium body, soft carbonated. Nice Dubbel.

Uit fles. Prachtig schuim, mooi donker van kleur. Veel aroma. Meer een bier voor herfst of winter dat wel, maar vol van smaak.

Bottled. A light version of the 8. Color is dark hazy brown with huge off-white head. Spicey nose. Aroma is dark fruit, sweet caramel. Flavour is same, no alcoholic stings of the 8. OK.

Classic lighter dubbel- caramel nutmeg rich malts, candi sugar, and a touch of banana Belgian yeast. Definitely a nice Belgian drinker.

.33l bottle at home. Hazy brown beer, shallow aromas, hints of brown sugar and caramel. Taste is rather sweet. Strong malt flavour. Palate is thick, medium carbonation. Flaky yeast is present in the bottle, I poured some yeast along with the beer.. hehe. Overall not too bad. Not that special of a beer.

backlog Aroma: malty, candy sugar, and some dark fruits. Taste: malty, candy sugar, dark fruits and some yeast notes.

Westy1130 (94) - New York, USA - JUN 4, 2017
Pretty much a lighter version of Prior 8. Hazy brown color with medium head. Aroma: dark fruits, candy sugar, nutmeg and barley. Taste: Plums, dates, raisins, toffee, Belgian yeast and spice.

growler6 (170) - BELARUS - JUN 3, 2017
Dark semi-sweet chocolate, with banana, pear and doughy aromas. Not as much depth of flavor or aroma as I was expecting. Light and fizzy as it should be with a slightly salty aftertaste. Ok but just an average dubbel. Their Prior 8 is much better .
