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

mild malt and yeast aroma, sweet but not fruity. a deep brown color with a creamy tan head. very full flavor, with hints of chocolate and a bit of red wine taste, along with some yeast and sweet malts. a great mouthfeel, a very full body, and and incredibly smooth taste.

bottle. mmmm...what a beer.pours a nice effervescent copper-brown with a huge frothy head that lingered and laced all the way down the glass. Perfect marriage of yeasty, fruity, malty and sour flavor. wonderful yeast flavor...very fruity and bready. great, great beer.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2005
Pours sparkling clear dark copper brown with a huge lasting fluffy beige head which laces the glass nicely. Pleasant light fruity aroma. Flavor is light and crisp for the style. Hints of apple cider. Very enjoyable and refreshing. Slightly tart, dry finish. Not a typical dubbel, this is different. Very nice.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2005
750ml bottle. Very dark copper with a lasting head. Initial aroma is wine-like, with notes of raisins and earth. Flavour is light for the style. Not very malty or yeasty. It has notes of raisins but the chocolate is well hidden. Palate is foamy and soft without the baking soda effect.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 25, 2005
Tastde 22/03/2005. 330ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits. The huge off white head from this beautiful dark ruby red ale collapses into a thin lacey cover. Punchy caramel aroma, firstly reminiscent of cola, slowly turn to spicey plums and stewed apples. The flavour is a real disappointment - dry and medicinal - and is delivered in a light and spritxt mouthfeel. Some woody tannin, winey fruit and sourness comes through later but initial flavour dominates. Palate is spicey and slightly furry. This turned from a favourite into an also ran once it hit my lips.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - MAR 21, 2005
reddish copper color. lots of fizz going up the body. super thick & creamy tall light tan head, lasts very long. the head is strong enough to suspend a few drops of the red liquid! aroma is lightly smoky, raisins, estery, some yeastiness. a little musty too. deep malt sweetness backed by creamy mouthfeel. high carbonation. dryness in the middle, then sour raisin flavor.

Pours medium brown with a nice off-white head. Taste is fruity but extremely light and satisfying. Hints of grape with some maltiness. Very smooth. Only flaw is the high level of carbonation. I feel like I could drink 5 of these massive bottles. Excellent Beer.

gsteph (323) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Cloudy reddish brown pour with a tan, light, pillowy, meringue like head, that left some sticky lacing. High level of carbonation. Sweet nose of grapes, apples, and musty port. Yeasty flavor, the same grapes and apples, raisins, and port wine, all muddled together in a malty, sugar like base, finishes a tad tart with a touch of lemon. Very smooth and silky, great feel on this one. Nice.

Nate (4200) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Some light malty sweetness, barnyard mustiness, and mild yeasty astringency. Cloudy brown-red with some particulates, and foamy off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with yeasty sweetness, estery notes, and mild citrus astringency. Light alcohol taste. Sweetness throughout and decent bitter dryness in the finish. A bit watery but fruity. Mild apple after. Decent ale.
