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.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2018 Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Dark ruby black colour lasting tan head. Some nutty malty flavour. Smooth in mouth, quite a lot of chocolate. Hides abv well. I rather liked it. Not much hop or spice. A little chewy. But decent definitely. Some dark fruits, raisins.

Cerveza muy bien hecha con toques afrutados que se bebe sola. No se nota para nada el alcohol. Repetir�a sin problemas. Buena elecci�n.

Thanks Kraddel. Tasted december 2017, bottled 2009. Tad oxidized, but still very nice. Port all over the place! Very interesting.

Prime donkere Belgian strong ale, haast amberkleurig. Zoet van karamel en wat specerijen, tevens wat pure chocolade aanwezig. Lekker met Kerst.

SarkyNorthener (5086) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2017
Bottle from Beerwulf. Very dark brown beer with small patchy head. Aroma of dark malts, a hint of coffee and molasses. Taste is a little spice, brown bread, dark malt and caramel. Medium bodied. Very good.

Lore (3065) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 23, 2017
clear brown colour with ruby hue, large, creamy beige-ish head; aroma and taste of dried cherry, unripe plum, dark chocolate and candiend roasted peanut; great one!

hohops (1200) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2017
Appearance is very dark brown, pretty much no head. Aroma- treacle, dark malts, toffee, dark fruit. Taste- sticky treacly dark malt, hint of chocolate, toffee, Christmas cake.

simontomlinson (756) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2017
Thin beige head soon left a cover on a very dark brown still body. Minimal aroma of malt & spiced orange. Medium to full bodied. Thick & chewy on the palate. Very little carbonation & sticky & cloying on the back. Liquorice, cherry, orange, spices, sugar & malt tastes with some added Festive Flavours!!

NiklasT (187) - SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2017 Dark ruby. Aroma has yeastiness and cherries. Taste adds figs, dates and spices. Medium sweet for a Christmas type strong ale. Not much bitterness.

culchiem (4339) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2017
Bottle from Carrefour. Mahogany with a minimal head. Aroma of musky spice. Flavour is Belgian beer with a bit of Christmas spice, roughly thrown in, not subtle.
