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

lamas (1527) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 26, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2005 Bottle. Best before date: 03/06/05. Pours a hazy brown with SUPER-thick fluffy tan head. Lots of effervescence. Aroma is malty, woody, fruity and yeasty. There is even a hint of chocolate present toward the bottom of the glass. Taste is at first a little overwhelmed by the high level of carbonation. Very balanced and full. Malty and tangy with a touch of chocolate and roastiness at the end. Excellent.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2005
Toasted fruity aroma and texture, malted sweetness and bitterness balanced. In a blind taste test I would have guessed a holiday ale.

Solid brown in color with a super rocky head. Slightly spicy aroma with yeast and raisen. A bit tart in flavor with some chocolate and toasted malt.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2005
Incredible head, huge, frothy, lasting. Darkbrown beer. Malty brew, raisins all over the place. Aftertaste develops into a very nice sourness. Excellent brew.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2005
12oz bottle: Nice off white fluffy head melts back into a dark ruby colour. Rich malty taste. Well roasted with hints of raisins, and dark chocolate. Aroma is of the same. alhochol is well hidden. This is definately a well rounded abbey dubbel. I didn’t taste much sourness nor bitterness. I bought this as a single and might go in for the entire 4-pack.

IndianaRed (3430) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Bottle was a gusher. Huge off white head all over the place. Very thick and lasting. Aromas are soft mild woody notes, yeast, with some of that Belgian spice and complexity.Flavors are similar with a little more alcohol taste and more of that warming Belgian flavor. Soft and smoth feel. Slight bitter aftertaste. Quite nice.

Commercial deScription is right on, add a touch of sourness. Very enjoyable.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2005
Draft: Overcarbed brown with an overflowing tan head. Mild caramel nutty aroma. Alcohol shows a little in flavour, mostly just sweet caramel and brown sugar. Medium bodied. Drinkable but nothing special

punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Yeah, sure this brew looked nice, but sheesh! You can’t smell anything and the flavor is extremely sour. Perhaps I got a bad batch, but this stuff was pretty gross. I left 3/4 of a bottle just sitting out open and no one would touch the stuff. It is complex with nuttiness and wheatiness, but the sour taste overcomes this brew and brings it to a crashing end.

TBone (15528) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 1, 2005
Bottled 33cl (BB 09/2006)
Dark ruby color with a big off-white head. Aroma has malts, leather and fruityness: grapefruit and cherry. Medium-bodied with smooth carbonation. Dry palate with licorice and portwineous finish with some sweetness. Excellent balanced brew.
