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

Garnet highlights are found in this brown brew that has a decent mocha colored head. The aroma is typically Belgian with yeast, malt, fruit and caramel coming to play. The flavor follows the aroma with a smooth and warming palate that finishes dry. Not bad.

This is one of my favourite belgians. fruit/winelike aroma, deep brown color. out of the bottle it's a bit heavy on the carbonation, but on tap this was fine. 'fruit' prevalent in the initial taste, however this fades to a more wine/raison flavor as it glides down the throat. drier than most belgians (a plus for me) and a bit more complex than many i've had. tap is fairly better than bottle, but the bottle is quite worth it as well.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Pours with a copious, perennial head; fruity, roasted aroma, some dates or raisins prevelant; oaky, woody, flavor with slight fruity esters showing up; fairly thin body; tastey, smooth, quite quaffible, not much aftertaste; quite drinkable; a good, "mellow" Belgian.

Bottled. Mid-brown with rich head. Mild and honeyish with soft, livley mouthfeel. Fairly dry with a bit of caramel. Gentle, complex and well balanced.

Deep brown in color with a ruby-reddish hue, nice brownish head, very smooth & drinkable, great balance, sweet & malty but yet a slight tingy hoppiness, caramel undertones, a warming feeling as it slides down, more flavors that I just can't put my finger on, overall a great brown ale

Dark brown with a high brown head. Nice spicy and hoppy aroma. Lots of carbonation. Strong yeast. Quite dry finish and palate.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2004
Ya know, this is much much better on tap thanin a 750 ml bottle. Pours brown with a huge tan head. Earth aroma that has the distinctive yeasty Belgian note to it. Carmel malty fruity flavor, with a hint of sourness. This is where the tap version that I had differs. I would say that the tap version was darker and had more of a Dunkel flavor to it than the bottle, and would even raise my draught rating to around 4.4ish. So all, take a note and give the tap version a try.

Not bad - a medium brown with a thick head. Relatively malty sweet with hints of spice and chocolate. Fairly smooth and balanced with a bit of a sour finish.

Not very impressed. Sweet, fruity, and spicy all in one beer. Felt like I may be drinking water and cough syrup.
