A - Medium-to-light brown body, bordering between translucent and opaque. When poured into a chalice, it has a decent 3/4" head that dissipates rather quickly.
S - Very pleasant malty, fruity aroma (figs and plums seem to dominate).
T - Very rich and fruity taste- impressive considering the low ABV. It's sweet, but not overtly so. There is no bitterness whatsoever. It's not very complex, but I have no complaints at all.
M - Moderately thick and somewhat creamy. My only complaint is that I think the carbonation is a bit low. I wish it were a bit pricklier.
O - It's not my favorite dubbel (that honor goes to Westmalle), but it's pretty darn close. It's dangerously tasty- I could drink this every day of the week. The price isn't bad at all, either.

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.
