Launched 1982 by Jef Keersmaekers as Pater Noster. Brewed by Brasserie Du Bocq since launch.
Ingredients: Caramel, Pilsen and Munich barley malts, and Saaz, Kent and Hallertau hops

11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a muddy dark brown with a nice reddish hue around the edges and an average (1-2 finger) tan creamy head that had great retention pretty much lasting throughout, thus creating some excellent sheets of sticky lacing. The aroma starts with a roasted sweet bread malt and moves on with an earthy somewhat leathery yeast. In the back ground I sensed notes of milk chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, some dark fruit (raisons and figs), a hint of smoke and a mild winey alcohol presence. The taste started with a nice malty sweetness and had hints of chocolate and brown sugar, progressing with a good bit of dark fruit and a slight alcohol finish. The flavor had a decent duration following the swallow with a sweet fruity taste fading as a mild creamy chocolate alcohol flavor settled on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a strong medium in body with an extremely smooth and creamy texture and an almost flat carbonation. Overall this was an exquisite tasting brew, one that possessed a nice sweet malty taste with a really intense creamy feel. This hid the moderately high ABV extremely well and made a pleasure to consume...

Mooi donker bier met een grote schuimkraag, slaat wat snel neer. Smaak is lekker zoetig, al bij al een prima biertje

0.33l bottle. Clear rubyish brown body, beige head. Aroma of caramel, berries, chocolate and cherries. Taste of cherry, chocolate, toast, floral hops and only a hint of nutmeg. Sweet upfront, but it finishes dry. Awesome.

De couleur brune pas trop foncée on voit encore à travers la mousse est légèrement coloré elle a une ténacité correcte Honey vas sentir des arômes légèrement chocolaté des notes de fruits secs En bouche elle va être assez douce pas trop ta mère on va sentir de légère saveurs de chocolat de chicorée de noix C’est une bière vraiment intéressante
