Chestnut with steady tan film. 4
Cinnamon + brown sugar apple. 4
Big dark toffee, hazelnuts, chicory, mashed overripe pears, and nutmeg end. 4.25
Tingly linger.
Almost medium, chewy, dead smooth. 4.25

Execution like a razor. Nut and sweet more than fruit, so off centre for a dubbel. But I’d session the life out of this. 4.25

this was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a ruddy dark brown color with a finger’s worth of white to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Glossy filmy lacing clung and then slid into the glass nicely. The aroma starts off with sweet iced apples, sly Belgian spices of allspice, ginger, and sweet cake to bready raison-like fruitiness. Comes together really damn good! The flavor takes all of the previously mentioned flavors to meld in a nice refined sweet to spicy sort of way. Normal Belgian quickening throatiness doesn’t harden on my throat in the aftertaste or finish like a fair amount of other Americanized- Belgian Dubbels. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium in body with a great sessionability about it. Carbonation rides light. ABV barely feels there. Overall, love it for what it is, and would love to come back to this.

The Pater 6 is not the best from St. Bernardus, mainly because the others are so good.

The Pater 6 pours a murky brown with a short lived foamy head, which drops it a point.
The Aroma is very inviting, lovely dark fruits and figs all the way.
The taste is 'ok', a little tart and vinegary, which is a shame given the great aroma.
Feel is similarly just ok, a little flat and not quite enough oooooommmmph to be honest.

Is this a good brew?, yes, a great brew? No! A typical dubbel.

Worth sampling, I'd say so.
