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 panachvulling, 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.
