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

A little bitter for me, but the shapness definitely died down a bit as it warmed. Nice complex flavor, a little heavy on the alcohol taste.

Thanks to aracauna for this one (although it turns out you can find it in Ohio after all...). Thick, slowly dissipating head that lasted pretty much the whole glass. Rather dark amber color. Very complex aroma with hints of caramel and fruit (was that really raisin?). This one definitely improved as it approached room temperature. I am looking forward to trying the Pale Ale.

A strong, sweet Burgundy-colored ale with a rich full flavor. Some notes of fruit and alcohol were present. Quite good.

Muddy brown - like chocolate milk in color, pleasant aroma, mild nuttiness, quite nice, full-flavored, an out of the ordinary brew, significantly more alcohol than most, much maltiness. Good!

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2005 May 2002 original, then rerated April 2003, now rerated March 2005. Wow, has this sunk in my estimation. Draught, for the first time, reveals the real underlying sugariness and lack of smokiness that would help. Let this warm up for best effect, and maybe it wasn’t designed for draught consumption. -- here’s the original: I really really like this! The aroma is fantastic...malted, musty like old leather, yeasty. The taste is easy to handle, but if you really think about it, it is complex, sweet but not overly (raisins, bread dough). Man, this and the pale are both excellent! And, I gather, fairly accessible. Is this *the* combo of best and most accessible of the Belgian breweries?

a nice maltiness characteristic of a brown ale, but more complex than most i’ve had. a little sweet/tangy and finish reminiscent of a white wine. had to experiment with temperature a little.

rauchbier (3639) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2002
excellent dense head, very rocky lots of lace and when I finished sipping the contents of the (750ml) bottle an hour later the head was still there. Aromas of butterscotch, caramel and wood. Very vinous and figgy with a hint of earthy cork notes and a trace of phenol. sweet and smooth finish with more vinous/citric hints.

Interesting aroma of spice, fruit, and some hints of alchohol. Wonderfully rich in flavor, from chocolatey roasted malt notes to a bounty of fruit flavors, notable cherry and green apple. Great beer.

strong rich aroma. appearance is what i’d expect from a brown ale. the bottle i got was strongly carbonated, with almost unidentifible taste of fruit and smoky grains. this brew reminds me alot of chimay bleu. need to do a side by side comparison for reference.
