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.

Christos (5366) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2016
(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 dont offer anything newer than the normal versions.
