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.

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!!

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.

3.4
alteregoo (1792) - Kalisz, POLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Piana obfita, nieco mydlana, szybko opada do pierzynki. Barwa rubinowa, klarowna. W aromacie czerwone owoce (wiśnie, śliwki), tanie wino owocowe (sangria?), trochę karmelu, miodu, sporo ziół i nieprzyjemnych przypraw. Smak słodki, likierowy, winny, tu sangria jest ewidentna, ocierająca się wręcz o poncz z owocami, do tego karmel, cukier kandyzowany, miód i sporo ziół. Goryczka niska, szałwiowo pikantna. Wysycenie wysokie, grube, pełne, zalepiające choć dość rzadkie w odbiorze.


W smaku nie jest najgorzej (pomimo niepotrzebnego skojarzenia z szałwią czy anyżem w aftertejsie), ale aromat nie do końca mi pasuje, jest jakaś przeszkadzająca, obca nuta. Poza tym wersja czysta zawsze lepsza niż z dodatkiem ziół, jak to przy piwach świątecznych, nie wiedzieć czemu, jest modne...

4.3
Gehbe (461) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JAN 22, 2017
Deep ruby brown with a medium tan head, hardly any lacing. Lovely aroma of toffee, figs, dried fruit, bread, toast, cookies, hints of chocolate, spice and wood. Sweetish taste backed up by light carbonation sourness and a light bitter finish. Full body, medium carbonation, nice warm finish, some stickiness. Excellent.

3.7
josanguapo (1979) - SPAIN - JAN 18, 2017
From cervezasespeciales. In Grimbergen glass. Playing A Golden Wake. Sweet, some liquorice and with enough bitterness to compensate. Flat carbonation makes it dangerously drinkable
