Game Day Beer Review: Brouwerij Corsendonk Abbey Brown Dubbel Ale
(7.30% ABV). Served on draft in a Corsendonk tulip glass. Corsendonk pours dark brown, with a thick, three fingered head that leaves behind lacing as thick as shaving cream -- just look at that head! The beer smells slightly sweet and malty, with some belgian candy sweetness also apparent. Corsendonk tastes mellow and refreshing, and lightly maltish with some slight hints of chocolate and unidentifiable spices. It's not overly complex, but it's very easy to drink. In fact, you could drink this one all night long, but it might come back to haunt you the next morning: B+.
