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

It had a nice aroma and a nice color, but I didn’t care too much for the taste. It was too much like apples, and I guess I am just not that much of an apple fan.

Excellent, smooth flavor. One of the best brews I have tried. Each bottle has been a pleasant experience. The Brown Ale is a much better selection than the Pale Ale. A taste exquisite.

Too sweet and buttery. I’m going to put one away and see what happens.

Definately better balanced then the Abbey Pale, IMO.

Very rich and complex -- raisin and nutty - bready and somewhat chocolate tasting. Beautiful head -- definitely a beer I will pursue again - much better than the pale ale. Cheers!

I actually liked this much better than corsendonk’s abbey pale ale. Much smoother and less hoppy with a great head on it.

Fruity aroma with a thick creamy head. Sweet, toasty, woody, chocolatey, port like taste with a slight hoppiness.

Nice cloudy dark red color, huge head. Pour carefully, or you’re going to have to wait 10 minutes to drink it. Spicy, yeasty, sweet malty aroma. Chocolate, yeast, sweetness dominates the palate. Nice beer, I wonder how it is after a few years? We’ll see.

this has a fruit and spice flavor. A little bite on the tongue from the alcohol, but it’s not bad. I recommend it, but not my favorite abbey ale. So far, Chimay holds that title.
