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

Amber/brown in color. Very carbinated tan head that sticks around. A bit sweet, a little chocolate. I really enjoyed this one. Would pick up again for sure. Also could taste the malt in this one.

The official description sounds exactly right. Fruity and slightly smokey, with notes of port, raisins, and sweet dark chocolate. Of course they forgot three words ... sour, sour, and sour. Beautiful reddish brown beer with a huge light brown head. Beer was surprisingly thin in the mouth, given its nose and its appearance.

750 ml 2002 bottle. Light brown pour with an enormous head. Light musty smell of earth and malts. Taste is malty with candi sugars and faint green apple. Smooth and crisp.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Hazy brown, almost muddy appearance. Lots of aroma from the malts, extremely aromatic and pleasant. A bit on the dry side for a "Dubbel" making this easier to drink than some of it’s brothers. Has been marketed extensively in recent years, but seems to have maintained all it’s qualities. 020893

Explosive cork that shot off the bottle after I removed the cage. Poured a massive faomy ahead atop the mahogany body. Aroma of rasins and cocoa with a hint of smoke and vanilla. Fruity, notes of plum and pear a very slight touch of smoke. Yeasty finish. Enjoyable.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Beautiful brown, translucent in appearance with a great creamy, fluffy head, leaving nice lacing tracks as we go along. Smells of golden raisins, pepper, anise and apple cinnamon. Flavor is most predominantly pepper, caramel and toffee. Sour red grape aftertaste. Great beer.
