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

11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a muddy dark brown with a nice reddish hue around the edges and an average (1-2 finger) tan creamy head that had great retention pretty much lasting throughout, thus creating some excellent sheets of sticky lacing. The aroma starts with a roasted sweet bread malt and moves on with an earthy somewhat leathery yeast. In the back ground I sensed notes of milk chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, some dark fruit (raisons and figs), a hint of smoke and a mild winey alcohol presence. The taste started with a nice malty sweetness and had hints of chocolate and brown sugar, progressing with a good bit of dark fruit and a slight alcohol finish. The flavor had a decent duration following the swallow with a sweet fruity taste fading as a mild creamy chocolate alcohol flavor settled on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a strong medium in body with an extremely smooth and creamy texture and an almost flat carbonation. Overall this was an exquisite tasting brew, one that possessed a nice sweet malty taste with a really intense creamy feel. This hid the moderately high ABV extremely well and made a pleasure to consume...

chromeotaphor (33) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2014
Krachtig bruisend, intens donker bruin. Crème achtige schuimlaag die lang blijft hangen. Geur met hint van fruit, port, hout doet zoet aan. Drinkt zich makkelijk weg, voelt zacht aan met een zachte afdronk. Weinig smaak in het palet aanwezig, ontwikkelt zich langzaam. Meer geur dan smaak.

Donker bruin bier met veel schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en licht zoet met caramel en licht zuur fruit ondertoon. Erg goed.

Bottle from Appellation Wines. Murky brown body with a thick beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, prunes and raisins. Flavour of wood, caramel and lightly roasted malt. Thin body with a slightly sticky texture. Overly fizzy carbonation. For me, Westmalle Dubbel has more depth of flavour, and a much better mouthfeel, but this is still a very good Abbey Dubbel.

Pours a dark brown with a substantial rocky head. Nose is grape, a little wine-ish, a little yeast ester, brown sugar. Taste is grape soda, a bit of chocolate, estery. Not very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
