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

750ml bottle: Just as I removed the metallic protection piece on top of the cork and went to get a glass, the cork popped out and beer started to poured from the bottle – this is already an exciting beer. Quickly poured a glass of dark and hazy brown beer with huge foamy head with excellent retention. Aroma is mostly comprised of spices with some subtle notes of malt and yeast. Taste is more spicy then what I’m used for an Abbey Dubbel but I still very much enjoyed that one, I would have appreciated a bit more roastiness though. Carbonation is perfect and body is above average.

deep brown ale, lots of beige head that fizzes away quickly. awesome aroma of candy and brown sugar, some yeast and spice, some cider notes. flavor hints at raisin and chocolate, some alcohol. really enjoyable beer!

Bottle. pours a cloudy dark brown with a fat off white heads that surrenders like the French. alcohol and apple are dominant in the nose. very tart taste of fruit yeast dough and assorted spices. I am going to pick up a few of these to cellar to get a better handle on but i have to go with what i have at this point. this is very warming. finish is a sweet fruit and pepper with a solid malt backbone. I look forward to experiencing the aged versions of this.

A very well-made beer. Amazing pour with thick, long lasting head. Lacing consistent and continuous with aromas of yeast and fruit. Very smooth with a slightly smoky/chocolate finish.

Dry finish with subdued fruit. Some maltiness, no real kick. You can call it smooth.
