UPDATED: OCT 24, 2009 18-8-2009:Dark amber coloured, creamy darkwhite head, sweet aroma. Tastes bitter, alcohol is dominating, not a good thirstquencher. In palate hints of rasins and coriander (?). Moderate, a bit too strong, not too good balanced.
14-10-2009: Another bottle. This time itís more my style. Nicely bitter, long finish. I taste figs, herbs, a bit of cacao. This is nice

the smell of the beer promises more than what you eventually get. I smell chocolate, strawberries, banana and more in the beautiful foam top.
itís a very warming beer. Takes a minute before the effect of a sip has stopped. Alcohol kicks in later and keeps you warm inside.
De Leckere is turning into one of my favorite Dutch breweries.
