3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Brouwcafe, Scheveningen. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy off white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is big yeast, light malt. The flavour is medium bitter, light sweet, with a frothy yeast, roasted malt, liqourice bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not bad but a bit one dimensional and old style Belgian.

Bottle that I almost forgot I had...date code 12/06. Thought 8 years might have been to long for this to hold up, but it did and did it well. Very lively and effervescent this had a real nice apple over barnyard funk to it. Very pleasantly sour as well. Awesome.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appears brown with a big off-white head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate and hops. A fine balance between sweet and bitter. The body is medium and the carbonation overrules it sometimes. Not as complex as other Dubbel beers, but fine in its own way and good with meat dishes.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Transfer from BA review on 4-14-12 -
Poured from 750 ml bottle into snifter glass
Appearance – Pours a hazy dark brown color with a medium tan head. The head has a moderate persistence but eventually fades to give some lacing.
Smell – The smell is bready and yeasty with strong dark fruit aromas. There are some lighter hints of banana, brown sugar and spice as well, mixing with the fruit and bread very nicely.
Taste- The taste is up front of brown sugar and dark malt; a nice brown bready flavor. There is a development of the dark fruit flavors mixed with some banana and spice more toward the middle of the taste. Theses linger on to the end where they mix with a yeast cake flavor which when mixed with the dark bread of the initial taste is very pleasurable.
Mouthfeel – The brew has a medium body with a slightly above average carbonation level. While the carbonation is a bit too high, as it takes a bit out of the smoothness, overall the mouthfeel is still not bad.
Overall – This is a good easy sipping dubbel. Good malty and fruity flavors make for a very pleasing experience.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dégustée en bouteille de 330 ml au Bistro des bières belges à St-Hubert le 5 décembre 2012 au coût de $9.50. Bière brune foncée servie trop froide. Col mince beige crème foncé assez persistant. Odeur de cognac, de fumée. Un peu forte, très sucrée, pas très amère. Saveur de mélasse en amorce, de fruits séchés (raisins/figues), un peu aigre en finale. Très bonne, style typique d’une brune belge.

One of the first Belgian beers I ever enjoyed back in the mid 1990s. It’s been a few years since I’ve had one, and I just realized I had never written a review.
The beer is chestnut brown with a substantial beige head that has plenty of staying power. The aroma offers a big dose of Belgian yeast, brown bread, alcohol. Very tasty beer. Big time yeast character with light warming alcohol. Easy drinking with a great feel on the palate. Bready, yeasty, malty, not too heavy, perfect carbonation level. Overall, a solid beer. A fine example of the style. This beer has stood the test of time and I’m sure I will be enjoying a Corsendonk from time to time as long as I am able.
