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: FEB 12, 2003 a very rich and thick beer. a bit too fizzy, for the cork nearly put my eye out. i also poured a little too fast. maybe it was the car ride. anyway, it has a nice bitter bite blended with a creamy chocolate that manages to not be very sweet, but adds in for a great flavor. give it a shot and watch that cork.

Not crazy about this ale. Sweet, doughy and sour flavor made be too sweet for my taste.

murky copper , fluffy head. thin mouthfeel. tart but earthy aroma. tastes the same as the aroma, slightly tart but mostly rich--plummy,raisiny, whichever. i am very sad to rate this tasty beer on the day the columbia crashed.

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2003
The ebullient, frothy texture of this beer is misleading, it seems to me - it gives a sense of lightness to the brew that on this go round I found engaging and interesting, but which might lead to a hasty dismissal in other circumstances. Instead, I rise with the ether, enjoying the seemingly effortless play of dark flavors (cocoa, raisins, yeast, and plum wine) in the lighter body. It makes me want to rethink some of my dismissals of Unibroue products, anyway.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - JAN 27, 2003
The colour is dark amber, with a good persistent foam. The taste is much more delicate than I thought, with light traces of fruits. A good Belgian ale, but not really the best one.

CapFlu (4458) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 18, 2003
(750 ml Bottle) Beautiful deep ruby colour with a thick, frothy, mostly lasting beige head. Aroma of alcohol and spice. An acidic taste with lingering hints spice and a smokey cask. Very interesting and flavourful but I'd rather have something from Unibroue for this price.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2011 2010-08-12, bottle at Ris Ras, Århus, 8-4-6-3-14=35
Dark brown color; generous head, compact. The mix of dark malt and spices constitutes a nice arome, there is also a hint of Belgian yeast. The body is less strong than expected, a dry roastiness steers it in that direction too; mild flavor of roasted malt, medium to low bitterness, too simple. Balanced, but the Agnus Dei is better.

2003-01-11, draught, 9-5-8-5-17=44
Clean dark amber color; generous, thick brownish head. Strong spicy aroma (cloves, cardamom, curaçao...). Good body strength, more on the sweet side (more balanced in the end); still some alcohol; again the same spices (a lot). Good and long final.
Spicy strong Belgian ale, very good quality.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 8, 2003
Cloudy copper color, huge off-white head which slowly diminished to leave strong lace. Aroma is yeaty, doughy, bready. Flavor is quite sweet and fruity - raisin, cotton candy, and a slight bubblegum and banana in there. Very tingly mouthfeel. There are many Belgian ales that far surpass this one.

Classy packaging. Quite fruity. No outstanding flavour as I was expecting. Lightness makes it very drinkable.
