COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2003
Murky tan/brown liquid with a light tan head. Aromas of dates, raisins, oranges, brown sugar and toffee. Spritzy feel. Wine like acidity cut through most of the flavors. Apples and raisin with only hints of malt. There is a late toasty malt finish, but to thin in the middle. A cross between a flemish red and a dubbel.

Darkover (1522) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Dark brown color with a huge fluffy brown head. Aroma of mostly yeast with a little dark fruit. Flavor is sweet, sour, acidic, yeast and a little nutty.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2003
Dark vibrant ruby color, with a continous head building on top. Smells of yeast and of some berry notes too. The beer just feels a little too carbonated. Has a seltzerish mouthfeel to it at first, I guess it needs to settle more than usual. Still has a nice taste to it.

Slight metallic aroma. Creamy head that never dies. Creamy smooth palate that finishes watery. Yeast and fruit flavor with a licorice aftertaste.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2003
This head is huge. Very thick and tan. The beer itself is a beautiful amber. Smells like yeast, raisins, and toffee. Tart taste. Metallic and tangy. Very tangy. I don't know if this is supposed to taste like this. Very different than anything I have had.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2003
Fantastic tawny hue with a massive light brown head that just gets bigger and stay like a piece of styro-foam. Orangey aroma with yeasty tones. Sweetish orange flavour and a little malt. A tad watery though.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - OCT 4, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2003 Whole lot of head on this one, very carbonated. Nice deep reddish-brown color. Yeasty malty aroma with dark fruits (raisins, plums) and maybe a little bit of spice. Flavor is sweet with some of the dark fruit that I found in the aroma. Mouthfeel is subpar, I found the texture a little too watery.

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - SEP 26, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 Very nice abbey brown. Little roasty on the balace, not too sweet at all. Dried fruit aroma. I love the color on this one. Nice mouth feel, not too heavy. Perfect rendition of the style.
