A. Pours a dark clear beer. Too dark to see through. Pours with a nice light carmel head. It last for a bit, then dissipates to some nice lacing.
S. Getting some nice dark fruits with a malt backbone.
T. Dynamite. Similar to the smell. Dark fruits, raisins, I can convince myself of a cherry in there somewhere.
M. Appropriate for the beer. Moderately carbonated. What I would expect from this beer.
O. A well crafted dubbel if not on the easier side of a dubbel. Not a brown Ale as advertised.

The beer pours a moderate amount of light cream colored head that lasts quite a bit and does not dissipate very quickly. The beer itself is a dark brown with some dark purple notes and is opaque. The beer smell has strong sugar and dark fruit notes. The hop notes are also strong. The hops are closer to an orange smell. The Belgian sugar smell mixes very well with the dark fruits and create a very sweet note. The taste is somewhat similar to the smell. The beer still retain the sugar/dark fruit/orange hop taste but the hops are a bit bitter and the sugary combo give it a slightly artificial taste. However, the taste is still fairly good. The mouthfeel is heavy bodied but on the lighter side. The biting carbonation give the beer a bit of texture in an otherwise smooth mouthfeel. Overall, a very good beer.

One of the first Belgian beers I ever enjoyed back in the mid 1990s. It's been a few years since I've had one, and I just realized I had never written a review.

The beer is chestnut brown with a substantial beige head that has plenty of staying power. The aroma offers a big dose of Belgian yeast, brown bread, alcohol. Very tasty beer. Big time yeast character with light warming alcohol. Easy drinking with a great feel on the palate. Bready, yeasty, malty, not too heavy, perfect carbonation level. Overall, a solid beer. A fine example of the style. This beer has stood the test of time and I'm sure I will be enjoying a Corsendonk from time to time as long as I am able.
