4.31/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a chilled LaTrappe goblet.

Appearance 4.5: Poured a deep black. Completely opaque. Tan head followed with the pour and stayed at a lovely 1/4" the entire session. What was really remarkable to me is how the lower edges of the head have a serrated look due to the big, bottle conditioned bubbles rising from the beer. Just gorgeous.

Smell 4.5: Very unique and pleasing bouquet. There is an earthy scent to this beer and it is matched with dried fruit, toasted grains and a certain briny scent. There is also a light hint of noble hops and the requisite Belgian yeasty spice.

Taste 4.25: The front was slightly sweet, with a subtle undercurrent of toasted grains. This faded into the middle which was remarkably empty of anything other than dryness. The finish was where a the flavors popped back up and I detected the Belgian yeast, a brief hint of smoke and a delightful hit of barley and light woody rosins. Aftertaste was short and dry, but focused on the toasted grains and barley.

Mouthfeel 4.25: Smooth and dry, with a deceptive clean, clear and light feel.

Overall 4.25: An excellent beer, but not the best dubbel I have ever had. Which is like saying, "This bar of gold is somewhat less oblong than I usually prefer." This is a fantastic beer and its dryness would lend it to accompany almost any type of food you can think up. It is also fabulous for sessions and has no hint of: a.) alcohol or b.) "wet dog," both of which have the tendency to pop up in some dubbels. Recommended, but if you are put off by this beer, just keep trying dubbels...you'll find one that really knocks your socks off.

Corsendonk Dubble Pater is Great Abbey beer.

A: It sports solid brown body with mahogany highlights and active carbonation. Forms an off white loosely knit head that lasts and laces, but not as much as the best Belgiques.
S: Creamy. Fruity and spicy to the nose.
T: Follows the nose with malty sweetness covered in caramel, and chocolate. Nice balance of sweet and tart to the taste. Fruits: plums, raspberries, dark grapes, figs, and dates.
Then tartness rounds the finish perfectly.

MF: Great balance that brings tingly spice to the dry finish.
