Poured into a chimay glass. Pours a huge cream coco colored head, good sticky lacing to boot. The body is deep brown with ruby red edges when held to the light.
Cherries, figs, raisins, candy, light hops, (I suppose port but I don’t know that aroma too well)….this one takes on some Christmas like notes. I’m not sure what to say.
This one tastes like a barrel aged wine or liquor is mixed with a fruity beer. There’s some almost sour notes from the hops at the finish. There’s a lot of dark fruits. Surprisingly there is a bit too little sweetness for what I expected at least. The finish isn’t for me, too much yeast and hops without a good finish.
Lighter bodied for the Belgium beers and surprisingly light for the 7.5%. The carbonation is good giving a creamy body here, a touch too carbonated but very acceptable all things considered.
Apparently Abbey Brown Ale isn’t for me. I don’t get what the brewer wanted here but I hope they can work things out.

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.
