A tall, light brown head forms when you pour Het Kapittel Pater, releasing the sweet, complex (perhaps buttery?) aroma. Being a dark ale it is (duh) quite dark, but allows plenty of light to pass through.

This is an ale with a complex taste. There are so many flavors in there: bannana, coriander, butter, etc. There are also some funky flavors, too.

It has a slick mouthfeel, possibly from the 6 percent ABV?

While not the best dark ale out there, Het Kapittel Pater is certainly a good choice.

Something of a pastry mixed with a christmas ale and some wild belgian brew. I wasn't sure what to make of it. But "he likes it; he really likes it!" Dark in color, thin head. Heavily spiced nose -- plums, exotic plant roots, ginger, perhaps? Sweet, initial malt flavors are balanced by something of a hop presence but also by a masked acidic quality. Subtle and simple, I find this very drinkable. I feel as though I drank this too quickly to catch all its subtlties, but perhaps not. I'll have another in a month or so to see.

As it sets in my triple glass a transpicuous deep amber to mahogany color, the head skeletal and what was there evaporated quite quickly, color a light tan, the lace is marginal at best. Nose heavy malt sweetness, hints of plums, crisp and clean with the start sweet and loaded with malt, top is middling. Finish has a pleasant acidity, the hops pertinent to the style, dry lingering aftertaste, not sure I care much for this beer, and maybe another sample in a couple of weeks might change my mind, average at best.

Off brown color that has a nice large bubbled head. Good lace.

Flavor: Hmmm, tough call. A bit nutty with a little wild flavor. Also a slight rubbing alcohol flavor. The flavor seems to change the longer you drink this. Well carbonated. (buuurp) This is not a beer I would drink and say "Ahhh!" after swallowing.

Huge after taste on this one. I'll pass on this in the future.

The bottle is very colorful however and belongs in any collection.
