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

Very fruity (especially apples) and very carbonated. Full, cloudy body and full, frothy head. Fairly sweet finish with a touch of malts and roastiness.

KA-POP! I think the cork put a dent in my ceiling. This has and cloudy, rusty appearance, with a nice head of medium-sized white bubbles. Fruity, yeasty, sweet aroma. The flavor is tart up front, but mellows into a slight malty sweetness, with notes of raisins, plums, and perhaps cherries. There is a slight, port-like character to it as well. This is like a cross between Westy 8 and Trois Pistoles, but with a little less maltiness and a lot more TANG!

Super carbonated, slighlty cloudy brown. Bubbly. Slightly sour smell accompanied by a similar taste. Some hints of chocolate and roast but only in the background. Finish is slightly spicy with a hint of clove. Not my fav. style.

Be careful when you open it. The cork could put someone's eye out, and we don't want that, do we? Extremely carbonated, almost a detrement. Huge sturdy head. Coke brown color. Floral smell and initial taste, note af chocolate and plums. Very mild hop bitterness.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2003 The cork pops with the authority of champagne. Pours deep ruby/mahogany with a huge frothy tan head and tiny bubbles dancing to the surface. A little spice in the nose. Flavor: Starts champange like and spicy and the finish dry and a little tart. You can feel the alcohol warm your face.

The Abby Brown Ale we tasted was from draft. It was lingering, mellow, caramelly, lingering, delicate, flavorful and lingering. Did I mention lingering? Great beer.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2003 A fruity, slightly sweet aroma start off this glorious brew. Flavor features the same fruitiness, and is really quite nice. Corsendonk just makes some great brews.

Very enjoyable beer. Nice copper color and big fluffy head. It's sweet, almost too sweet, but still good. It also has a sweet aroma. Spicey flavor like other belgian strongs. This is a very enjoyable beer.
