Pater 6 pours a cloudy amber color with no head. There is a very dry and very sweet aroma, with some dry grape almost wine like notes. The taste is dry and very very sweet, with some grape notes, and has a wine like flavor. The flavors are good and strong, but very flat feel. Overall its nice, but very very sweet, and too sweet for me.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Bottle dated 14 03 16 at 50 degrees into snifter
Aroma of fresh bread which gives away to a heavy malt odor
Head average (4.5 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing to 4 mm ring with center island
Lacing poor – a few irregular islands which slide back down to the ring.
Body dark brown, hazy from yeast from the pour
Flavor starts with heavy brown sugar and over-ripe date sweetness which slowly fades to an unpleasant sourness
Palate full, syrupy, lively carbonation

This tasted pretty decadent until the terminal sourness rolled in. After that, it was a literal bad taste in the mouth.

330ml Bottle from Total Wine Palm Desert CA for $5

Appearance – Brown colour with an above average size fizzy beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell – Malts, caramel, yeast, dark fruits

Taste & Mouth - There is a high amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and a yeasty spiciness. There is also some dark fruits, anise, and some herbal notes.

Overall – Tastes like a lighter version of the ABT 12. A little dry tasting and none of the flavours are very pronounced. Very drinkable though, just a little subdued - which is I'm sure what they're going for here.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from small (11.2oz?) bottle into Duvel glass.

Color is reddish-brown, with moderate, fluffy head.

Smell has caramel and lots of brown sugar.

Taste has much of the same, but the body feel relatively light, and it actually ends up with a refreshing and somewhat light beer.

High quality product from St.B.
