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

355 mL bottle, goblet, 45 degrees. Very large, rocky, frothy, off-white head is on a murky brown-red body. Toasted bread, cookie malt; missing hops; earthy, cobweb yeast; raisin, port, smoke toffee, aromas. I picked up everything the bottle said I would except for the dark chocolate. Heavily sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly bitter finish. Prominant alcohol flavor. Port and raisins step it up in the flavor, but the chocolate is still missing to me. Creamy smooth texture is somewhat broken up by the fizzy carbonation. The body is medium-heavy. The bottom line is: rich, creamy yumminess.

Nice ale. inviting aroma of yeast and malt. Flavor has a fruitiness too it to complement the malt. Moderately sweet. Personally I prefer the plale ale by Corsendonk but this is a good brew as well.

I haven't been into Belgians lately. I was expecting this to be kind of sweet. My first impression is that it's sour kind of like an apple. This is really starting to grow on me. I have to remember that this is not a U.S. microbrew. Now I'm starting to taste some of the sweetness and chocolatey aftertaste. It's copmplex and it's flavors are subtle. Not like a Rogue chocolate stout (tasting and smelling like chocolate milk. this is complex like a fine wine. Aroma is like the taste - very subtle chocolate with sour apple. Beautiful retaining head. This is a Belgian I would like to buy again. Palte was just a bit watery though.

Tap. Dark brown with large white head, nice lacing. Aroma has malt, bread, musty, yeast. Taste is fairly sweet, molasses maybe, some dark malt. Not great but not bad.

Pours a deep luscious brown. Nice tan head on this. Nice sweetened malt nose with a pleasantly sweetened and spicy taste. Finishes very well and is smooth too. Very good beer!

The Rathskeller Wine & Beer Fest:When poured, this beer had a small sized tan head with fine sized bubbles that fully diminished.The body was clear with no carbonation observed.The hue was brown and the aroma was fruity, spicy, malty and lightly hopped.The flavor was lightly sweet and lightly bitter.The mouthfeel of this beer was smooth, slightly tingly, thin and light bodied.This beer left virtually no lacing.

One of my personal favorites. Very full in flavor and palate. Beautiful color and head. The 3L bottle will have better character than the smaller bottles.
