Dark brown reddish color with a thin beige thick head with short retention, but leaving a constant plate and laces.
Elegant and nice aroma, not entirely on the common ground for Dubbels, with lots of tangerines, prunes and spices.
Great flavor with notes of chocolate, toasted malts, tangerines, cocoa powder, raisins, prunes, red grapes, earthy and citrus hops, caramels, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, mild white pepper, blackberries, red fruits, figs and yeast. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness and a nice light tartness.
Light body with good carbonation. Alcohol of 7% abv is simply not there.
Excellent beer, not a heavy Dubbel, actually felt quite modern to me, even like an American Brown Ale. Great balance on complexity and drinkability. Recommendable.

Poured a hazelnut brown with a ginormous head. Had to be very gentle with it, just like a Swedish lady, in order to pour it without overflowing with head. But it is impressive. Very classic dubbel characteristics. Sweet beginnings with hints of plums and raisins, light caramel and brown sugar, and that classic Belgian yeast. Touches of spice and herbs, possibly cinnamon and clove? Maybe the slightest touch of cola as well. Spritzy on the palate, but smooth at the same time. Very nice.

The beer comes in a brown mahogany color.
The beer has lots of caramel and bready sweetness. However, there's also a raisin, plums, and figs along with lots of warm winter spices. There's also a heavy Belgian yeast note.
A medium minus mouthfeel, but with a good amount of flavor.
An interesting beer in the style. Don't expect a brown ale, but it has those sweet notes, but also with a Belgian fruits, yeast, and fruits.

Corsendonk pater dubbel
Dark red/brown color with very little head.
Smells slight fruity bread. Sweet, caramel.
Tastes almost like slightly dark chocolate that hangs on the back of thr throat. Caramel ane slightly dark fruit. It tastes really good.
6.5 % not detectable.
Update: this beer is inconsistent. Every bottle seems to taste different. First bottle is reviewed above. The other bottles smelled like wet dog and each bottlr tasted different.
