330ml bottle at 6.5% ABV as Corsendonk Pater Dubbel Ale. Pours brown with a medium-sized beige head. Aroma is caramel, dark fruit. Taste is light sweet, dark fruit, brown sugar. I found it to be pretty underwhelming.

Myonlyvice (350) - DENMARK - DEC 10, 2017
Dark opaque brown with a light brown, soapy head. Aroma: Caramel, yeast, bananas, raisins and malt. Taste is mild but nicely balanced with a malty sweetness countered by a gentle bitterness and slight sourness in the background ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. Aroma is coffee, raisin, chocolate. Taste is the same, lots of carbonation, dry finish. Lighter body than some dubbels, but good flavour and balance.

sambaloelek (3) - BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2017 does not count
Ok, first some introduction

I 'm from Belgium, and the last five years i have tasted more then hundreds of the best beers of Belgium.
My current favourites in Belgium are Rochefort 8 and 10, Gouden Carolus Classic and Tripple, Bourgogne des Flandres, Sint Bernardus White, Prior 8 and Abt12, Malheur 12, St. Feuillion Brown and St. Feuillion Grand Cru , Chouffe Houblon and Triple, Chimay Triple (white label), Hoegarden Gran Cru, Surfine Saison, Buffalo Bitter, Noir De Dottiginies, Urthel Samaranth...

En now just found this one in the local supermarket, always skipped it because i never knew the name of the beer (it never seems to have won a world award)
But trust me, this beer is awesome. IT can do what all these other beers can do but at a lower alcohol percentage.This one is only 6.5 but gets almost to same feeling as a Malheur 12 for example which is 11.5%!. this beer is a beer that you can drink more then one for sure and has the quality of a high alcoholic abbey beer!
Recommended full heartedly if you are a brown coffee/chocolate/caramel/herbs beer lover in the winter !
PS: ratedbeer says the alcohol percentage on this one is 7.5 but that is incorrect.Looking directly at the bottle it says 6.5% (Corsendonk Pater Dubbel the beer)

Villyzzz (458) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a medium sized tan head. Aroma has sweet malts and bread. Taste is pretty mild with some yeast and malts. Pretty nice.

kamillozo (207) - POLAND - OCT 29, 2017
Butelka. Piwo ma barwę ciemnobrązową, jest klarowne, przebłyskują przez nie rubinowe refleksy. Zdobi je jasnobeżowa, niska piana, zbudowana głównie z drobnych pęcherzyków. Okazuje się jednak być dosyć nietrwała - redukuje się lekko strzelając do postaci cienkiego kożuszka. Nieznacznie oblepia szkło.
Aromat średnio-intensywny. Przebijają się nuty słodowe: opiekane, ciemnego chleba oraz owocowe estry w typie ciemnych i czerwonych owoców. Alkohol niewyczuwalny.
W smaku umiarkowanie słodkawe, słodowe, chlebowe, przypieczona skórka, rodzynki lekka kwaśność. Alkohol zupełnie niewyczuwalny. Finisz bardziej wytrawny. Goryczka niska do średniej. Jak to w piwach belgijskich dość mocno nasycone. Niestety ma trochę zbyt mało ciała - jest nieco wodniste.

hohops (1115) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2017
Label says 6.5%. Appearance is coca-cola brown, with a ruby tinge. A clingy off-white head. Aroma- dark fruit and cherry, chocolate hints. Taste- treacle, cherry, blackcurrant, hints of chocolate, raisin, rough malt, cardboard. Slightly fluffy mouthfeel.
