COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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: 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.

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.

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.
