Bottle shared by Barone. Aroma is dark fruits, prominantly figs and prunes and grape soda (in a good way). Pours dull brown with a big white soft head. Taste is spiced dates, prunes, and bubble gum. Very nice dubbel. Not too sticky sweet like some.

750 ml bottle. Pours hazy brown with tall, long-lasting, foamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of plums, cherries, caramel, funky yeast and brown sugar. Body is full and crisp. Spicy yeast, caramel malt, plums, raisins, brown sugar, minerals and herbal hops fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy. Nice Dubbel.

Finom kis apátsági sör. Ki lehet fogni különslegesebbet is a Corsendonk közül, ez amolyan standard.

adster (158) - HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2014
Habja gyönyörű és hosszasan tart, színe méltóságot áraszt. Az édeskés ízvilág helyett egy komlósabb, kesernyés-fanyar alapíz uralkodik, az idő múlásával egy erőteljes fűszeres aromával megbolondítva (leginkább a koriander az, amit érezni lehet). Illata sem hagy kétséget ízének alapvető jellegzetességei felől, a kettő remekül összhangban van.

KoNrRiI (442) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2014
0.33 bottle. Clear, brown color with a carmin tinge and a big, brownish head. Aroma has loads of malts but also quite a lot of yeasts, caramel, spices, and a touch of hops. Taste has a typical malty sweetness but also a hell lot of bitterness - not so good to be honest. Medium body, slick texture, and lively carbonation. Finish is a bit sweeter and a tad sourer but luckily less bitter than the taste, makes up a little bit for the lost impression. Overall the beer disappoints especially considering its beautiful aroma and the quality of other Corsendonks.

jmgreenuk (4071) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2014
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.
