Marketed as Corsendonk Abbey Brown Ale in North America.
Launched 1982 by Jef Keersmaekers as Pater Noster. Brewed by Brasserie Du Bocq since launch.
Ingredients: Caramel, Pilsen and Munich barley malts, and Saaz, Kent and Hallertau hops
Brewed with roasted malt, hence its deep dark reddish colour. It is a mellow, dark, top-fermented beer, refermented and matured in the bottle to obtain a lively, bubbly beer with a rich head

Very uniform brown color thatís nice to look at. Ample head that reminds you of the top of a root beer float. A crisp smell to it. Excellent, well balanced taste. One of the best beers Iíve ever had.

Bottle: Light brown, very muddy/dirty, moderate to large light beige frothy head, fairly decent lacing, lively carbonation. † Bready nose, slight fig/date, some candy sweetness. † Not as complex on the tongue, quite bready but not as sweet as suggested in the nose, with very little dark pitted fruit like character. † I do pick up a slight touch of apple or pear skin. † Spritzy mouthfeel, moderate to full body. † Finishes smooth, but lacks much character by the end. † Sample size was the 330ml. † Wondering if the 750ml bottles do much better. † More impressed with this one than Agnus, but still not as good as I had hoped.

I was enjoying this so much that I almost forgot to rate it. First of all, be careful opening this bad boy or you might put your eye out. i still havenít found the cork from when it shot out like a bullet. That being said...the first thing I noticed was the wonderfully complex, pleasing aroma with some caramel. After the long wait for the head to recede, I found that the flavor matched the aroma with itís complexity. Absolutely great.

Special ale. Firm notes of raisin and chocolate are balanced by fruity/estery Belgian yeast character. Strong and substantial yet oddly drinkable as only the Belgians can accomplish. Belgian ale truly makes life worth living. My favorite abbey (non-Trappist) ale.

A very fine looking beer with a nice head and a deep brown ale color. The flavor has hints of yeast, sweet fruit and alcohol. For myself, a let down Belgian. A little too syrupy sweet.

3 liter bottle most recently. Dark brown pour. Huge fruity malty aroma. Lots of raisins and maple / molasses. Nice medium body and decent carbonation. Caramel fruity candied sweet malt flavors. A slight touch of chocolate if its not too cold. Very good beer.

Lovely dark color and wonderful flavor. I lovethis ale long-time! Brillant malt sweetness blends well with a nice cake-like body, followed by some bitter hops. This is the gate-way Belgian, but not a love it and leave it kind of beer. I could enjoy this one at any time of the year!

this one poured a big head. i thought it had a raisinish aroma i aked my brother for a second opinion and he said it just smelled like beer. HA! strong carbonation. great overall taste but i coulnít really pick anything out besices the yeastness. no black chocolate or raisin taste in my palate and I have no f-ing idea what port is.
