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

Ya know, this is much much better on tap thanin a 750 ml bottle. Pours brown with a huge tan head. Earth aroma that has the distinctive yeasty Belgian note to it. Carmel malty fruity flavor, with a hint of sourness. This is where the tap version that I had differs. I would say that the tap version was darker and had more of a Dunkel flavor to it than the bottle, and would even raise my draught rating to around 4.4ish. So all, take a note and give the tap version a try.

Not bad - a medium brown with a thick head. Relatively malty sweet with hints of spice and chocolate. Fairly smooth and balanced with a bit of a sour finish.

Not very impressed. Sweet, fruity, and spicy all in one beer. Felt like I may be drinking water and cough syrup.

Bottle. Deep cloudy brown with off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt and fruity, but you can smell the yeasty alcohol. Taste is smooth and warming with hints of raison, fig, and chocolate. Damn this is good.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Pours a nice dark reddish-brown. Sweet tangy aroma, very fruity. A sour flavor followed by a port aftertaste. This beer has aged quite well with the collage of flavors on the palate. I think a nice choice for a after Xmas beer.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Bottle pours a red brown color with a monster head and good lace. Aroma consists of yeast. The flavor is quite yeasty and malty. The palate is fairly moderate. Overall, another good Abbey Dubbel, but not as good as some others.

BeerandBlues2 (10541) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Pours brown with a large tan and frothy head. Strong fruity and yeasty aroma. Slightly acidic but otherwise fruity with notes of raisins and wine. Light on the palate and does not linger.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2003 Brown colored with an amber hue and almost clear. Initial head is frothy and tan but settles down to a thin layer that is dense and creamy. Aroma of sweet malt and chocolate with a hint of dried fruit and alcohol. Also a bit yeasty which is very nice. Mouthfeel is effervescent and a smooth medium body. Flavor is mostly a chocolate one with notes of raisins and figs. Overall one of the better Dubbels I've had.
