look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours deep brown with a light off white or tan head. Lots of clingy lace and good foamy retention.

Raisin, alcohol, nuts, cocoa powder in the nose. General maltiness and maybe even something like warm cake. Nice.

Malt, fig, bitter cocoa, dark bread, bread crust bitterness. Some spice, a little yeast, some burnt sugars, all enveloped in some bitterness and a little alcohol.

Medium full in body, with nice carbonation.

Vey nice version of the style. Highly drinkable.

Champagne bottle poured into a Duvel glass. 2/7

Pours medium dark brown, light on the bottom, darker on the top. Thick 1/2 inch white foam, fluffy. Sweet candy cherry nose. Fruity too. Smooth belgian yeast taste that expands. Strong carbonation. Cola background. Nutty. Touch of booze mixed in.

Picked this beer up on clearance in February, guess they were clearing it out. Wonderful looking beer, thick and rich looking with great head, exactly what I would look for in a great beer. And then the smell, just as great. Then wow, tastes just as great. Could be a little more interesting but very smooth and tasty. Tastes maybe 5.5 max and is 8.5, wow. Excellent. Overall a great beer that is a must try and one I will looking to pick up again.

11.2 oz bottle was poured into a chalice.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger off white head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark crimson color with a little vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing all the way down the glass.

Smell: Spicy yeast, clove, caramel, raisins, prunes, figs, sweetness, cherry, toffee, belgian candy, and a little orange.

Taste: This beer tastes as good as it smells. A little booze too folks.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth, medium to full bodied, a little booze, medium carbonation, a little dry, a little chewy, and quite the sipper.

Overall: You can't go wrong. Corsendonk comes through as top notch once again.
