I drink this Pater in remembrance of Father Dan OSullivan at St. Irenaeus, who married me to my wife and baptized our kids, who enjoyed any beer I brought him and with whom I shared my first DFH WWS. Pours deep brown with a big head that needed some time to settle. Nice smell of raisins and plums, with sweetness emanating from the glass. After that buildup, the taste actually runs a little light. Sweetness is NOT that heavy. Instead, like a modest ale, it simply delivers a nice blend of malt and some nearly German-type hop sharpness. Lot of chunky foam and lace sticking around the glass. Fruitiness not as apparent in the taste. This bottle, at least, slides in more like a basic fine ale. And thats just fine by me.

Has a very fresh, fruity aroma with some caramel in it. It tastes not as sweet as it smells, but is a very nice balanced brew instead. Very easy to drink.

Pours a deep Burgundy brown with a huge tan foamy head. Lots of sediment. Medium carbonation with lots of lacing. Aroma is crisp and tart with dark fruit and spices. Crisp and clean with a full mouth tingly feel. Smooth with dark fruity taste and a nice finish. Flavors are goo but dnt linger long enough. Decent aftertaste. Very good but not great.
