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.

Bottle 33cl. Deep dark brown with a medium beige head. Little aroma, some malts and sugar and spices. The taste is mildly sweet and gets a little spicy to the aftertaste. Not too difficult, reminds me of double.

(Kerst Pater Special Christmas) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a big tulop, ABV 9% Dark brown colour on the body, small and thin light beige head on top, with low retention. Aroma mostly of caramel, light dark fruits, not much else. Taste also ofcaramel, more to discover now, molasses, dark fruits, light spices, quite sweet. Medium body, carbonation on good levels. Decent beer, another one of those belgian Christmas beers that don’t offer anything newer than the normal versions.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2017 28 January 2016. 7/3/6/3/11=3. Pours dark brown with a moderate, off-white, foamy head. The aroma contains caramel, sugar, dark fruits, some bread, syrup, Taste is medium sweet and stays in the long finish. Medium to light body but quite oily in texture. A warming beer to have with your food.
9 August 2017. Pours cloudy dark brown with a lasting, small, foamy, tan head. The arome contains lots of licorice (especially in the smell), candy (cane), caramel, brandy/alcohol, malt, chocolate and some spice. It tastes medium to heavy sweet and very light spicy bitter, with a long finish that has warming alcohol and sweet hints. Full body, syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation. The sweetness is overwhelming, yes, but I enjoyed this much more than my previous rating showed.
