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

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 Huge head of bubbles on the bottom and nice frothy head on the top. Great carbonation throughout. Color of dark brown with decent clarity. Aroma of raisins, yeast, a bit of old decaying wood and fruit. Full bodied beer with flavors of malt, yeast, various fruits and alcohol. Finish is slightly metallic, dry and warming from the alcohol. Also some lingering spices (pepper) that make the tongue tingle. Not the best of the variety but a good beer in its class. Kind of average for a dubbel.

Fruity sweet aroma. Good malt backbone throught. Finishes to the sweet side, then gradually dries out. A good example of the style.

Rather ordinary. Yeasty and sour, with dominant raisin notes. Too weak and too sour for my tastes. I strongly prefer Westmalle Dubbel.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 21, 2003
Dark brown color similar to a brown ale. Excellent belgain. Very malty flavor but enough hops are present. This is a beer I have been overlooking for a while but Im glad I finally gave it a try. Not as complex as many, but certainly as good

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2003
It has a dark, hazy brown color and a medium sized, lingering off-white head. The aroma is hoppy and slightly fruity with malts and yeasts. Full body with lots of carboantion, the flavor is sweet with malts and has touches of yeast, raisons, and grapes. Another winner from Belgium. Imagine that, a good beer from Belgium, who woulda thunk it?

JMerritt (1796) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2003
Brown with a tinge of red. Head is white, thick, and fully lasting. Fruity aroma (red grapes) which makes for a very wine-like experience, underlined with malt. Very sweet flavor; raisins and sun-dried fruit pop into my mind. Each sip seems fuller and more complex than the last. Tops, and I bet it would be even better after a little aging. Thanks to iguanatom for such a splendid beer!

Dougal (130) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 12, 2003
An amazing brown ale. Malty, yeasty, rich fruit hints on the nose and the tongue. I would rate it higher but each bottle seems different from the one before, some are hoppier than others. A must have!

UPDATED: APR 2, 2003 fruity aromas, with a subtile look of what's to come. This stuff is good! I don't usually go for fruity beer, but this one ROCKS!

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2003
Deep brown/red. Large head. Very malty nose with raisins and plums. Palate is filled with port flavors, raisins and dates. A very good Dubbel.
