Top fermented and bottle conditioned, Corsendonk Pater Dubbel is a Belgian Strong Ale that pours a dark reddish brown with a thick tan head. Carbonation is fine and lively.

Aromas include plum, figs, and raisins with subtler notes of apple and cherry; also present are roasted malt and notes of caramelized sugar, chocolate and spice.

Taste follows the nose in a similar flavor profile with a finish subtly balancing fruit and spice while remaining smooth and dry, effectively masking an ABV of 6.5%.

Food Pairings

A wonderful beer to pair with goose, roast pork or beef dishes, Corsdendonk's Pater Dubbel also makes an excellent nightcap or digestif.

Also pair with chocolate or buttery style cheeses such as Brie, Gouda, Havarti and Swiss, or pungent style cheeses such as Gorgonzola and Limburger.


Founded in 1398, the Priory of Corsendonk in Oud-Turnhout, Belgium became a noted brewery and malt house where, for several centuries, the resident monks famously brewed beer as part of the contemplative practice.

But in the late 1700s, by the imperial decree of Austrian Emperor Joseph II, the priory was dissolved and the monastery and all its property sold off.

In the 20th century the Corsendonk brew style and brand was revived and popularized by another area brewer, Antonius Keersmaekers; after his brewery closed, his family partnered with the Du Bocq brewing family to produce and market the Corsendonk brand.

Du Bocq Brewery began as a family farm in Purnode, a town in the Belgian Ardennes near the small river Bocq. In 1858, farmer Martin Belot began selling commercially the top fermented ales he and his staff brewed during the winter months when there was very little work to do in the fields.

The fledgling brewery built a reputation for quality and over time, brewery revenue gradually outpaced farming revenue. By 1960, Du Bocq was concentrated fully on the brewing business.

Today the brewery, still owned by the Belot family and still located in Purnode, distributes award winning ales internationally and occasionally partners with other brew brands, like Corsendonk, to assist in production and marketing.
