COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
De Kerstpater is diep donkerbruin met een streepje rood en heeft een beige schuim. Zoals bij de bruine Pater Lieven wordt ook hier de geur overheerst door chocolade met panachévulling, maar daar komt nog zoet bij van kandij en karamel en de warmte van alcohol. In de mond overheerst kandijzoet, maar een bitterheid zoals in zwarte chocolade of cacao verhinderen dat het zoet plakkerig wordt. De afdronk is lang, vooral het zoet blijft hangen.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, - MAY 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2005 (Bottle 25 cl) Vintage 2003 at 9% ABV: very dark brown, almost opaque. Pronounced impurities from the bottle fermentation. Weak, light brown head. Extremely delicious malt aromas, slightly smoked and rather dry but not sharp at all with a rather subdued bitterness. The alcohol is scaringly well hidden. 040505 As "Kerstpater" 6,5% ABV, probably vintage 1997. 7/4/7/3/14=3,5
