The Pater 6 poured into the goblet a lightly yeast hazed garnet brown color. The head was creamy tan foam that was continuously fed by streams of carbonation rising to the surface. The lace was thick and classically Belgian.
The smell was heavy on sweet malts, spicy yeast funk, medicinal phenolics, and the alcohol is faintly detectable. Overall, this was a pleasant mix.
The zippy active carbonation causes the tongue to tingle, medium bodied.
This is a much heralded example of a Dubbel, and deservedly so. Without a doubt this is one the best of the style in the world today. Complexities and depth are among this ones attributes. Very well done!
This is something I could easily drink on a regular basis.

Pater 6 pours a cloudy amber color with no head. There is a very dry and very sweet aroma, with some dry grape almost wine like notes. The taste is dry and very very sweet, with some grape notes, and has a wine like flavor. The flavors are good and strong, but very flat feel. Overall its nice, but very very sweet, and too sweet for me.

Bottle dated 14 03 16 at 50 degrees into snifter
Aroma of fresh bread which gives away to a heavy malt odor
Head average (4.5 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing to 4 mm ring with center island
Lacing poor – a few irregular islands which slide back down to the ring.
Body dark brown, hazy from yeast from the pour
Flavor starts with heavy brown sugar and over-ripe date sweetness which slowly fades to an unpleasant sourness
Palate full, syrupy, lively carbonation
This tasted pretty decadent until the terminal sourness rolled in. After that, it was a literal bad taste in the mouth.
