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

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
(on bottle) Dark red-brown, like a fox in the fall. Aroma like burnt toast and canesugar. Tad of fruit too. Funny absense of a fullness in the mouthfeel. It feels and tastes more like plumjuice, fruitness, with a hint of oxidaded hops and cocobean. The finish has a hint of malts. Funny gummybear taste in the late finish.

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2005
(on tap at Léon de Belge in Essen/Ruhr) Dark amber colour with a small tanned head. Sweet malty aroma with lots of dried fruits, yeasts and coriander spice. Initially sweetmalty taste with an almost refreshing slightly sour fruitiness turning into a spicy (pepper, coriander) and sweetbitter finish with hints of grilled red paprika. Medium body, the alcohol is well integrated. A very tasty Dubble !

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 1, 2005
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.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2005
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.
