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

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.

Decent if unmemorable belgian double. Decent yeasy character with raisin-candi sugar aroma.

It’s a belgian dubbel, which is good. However, it’s not a good belgian dubbel. Just not a lot of flavor in this one. Not bad but it paled in comparision to the Ommegang which I had afterword.

Very good with dinner. Flavers in this beer were pleasing; on the sweet side to me.

Promising initial flavor gives quickly into-- nothing in the back of the throat. Tastes better after it’s had the cap off for half an hour or so.

All I can say is ’amazing’. Raisin aroma with some yeast in the nose. Even more pronounced raisin flavors with some minor port wine notes. Thick, rich brownish head that sticks around. Deep, muddy brown color and great body. I will be drinking it again and again.

What a great looking beer. Beautiful head that sticks to my moustache. Has a rather wonderful apple under-tone. A rather dry finish. Good, but I like their pale ale better.
