St. Bernardus Pater 6 (ABV 6.7%) is an abbey style dubbel that pours dark chestnut brown with a small, creamy off-white head.

Top fermented and bottle conditioned, the beer, with a recipe that dates back to 1946, unites the deep flavor of specialty malt with the lively fruitiness of ripe tree fruits. Impressions of hazelnut and mocha accompany the taste of dark candy sugar and a slightly toasted but dry grain character. Bright apple and pear aromas make their presence felt all the way to the slightly bitter aftertaste.

Food Pairings: St.Bernardus Pater 6 is a great choice to complement pork recipes or contrast against zesty cheeses.

The St. Bernardus Brewery was founded in 1946 by Evarist Deconinck. When the Trappist monks of the St. Sixtus Monastery in Westvleteren, Belgium decided that brewing and promotional efforts had become a serious distraction from religious and contemplative activities, they granted Deconinck a license to brew and distribute Trappistine beers based on the monastery's recipe.

That arrangement continued for decades, but in 1992, when it was decreed that only beers brewed within the walls of a monastery under direct control of the monks could be called Trappist beers, St. Bernardus launched its own brand of abbey beers to huge success.

Today, the brewery distributes award winning ales to more than two dozen countries including the United States, Canada, Brazil, Australia and Japan.
