This one is similar to the Pater 6, but it seems a little boozier. Looks a dark red/brown color, with a nice fuzzy head. Smells boozy and cherry/fig notes. And not gonna lie, tastes like an alcoholic Dr. Pepper, which to me is a GREAT thing. Tastes carbonated, and has more of a booze taste than the Pater 6, but also seems a bit fuller and heavier. Cherry, figs, malts. Very nice Dubbel. Also feels more carbonated than the Pater 6, which gives it more of a full-bodied taste. It's less drinkable than the Pater 6, in that its not as sweet or light, but since this seems more like a beer and less like dessert wine, I feel it works better during the meal than after.
I think I like the Pater 6 better, but this is a great one too.
