TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 29, 2008
Poured a huge castle of frothy head over a reddish brow body. Smelled of roasted malts and brown sugar. The taste had a faint hop bitterness, but was characterized by roasted toffee, burnt sugar, and nice raisins. Quick finish. The palate was a bit oily, but very clean and bubbly. My favorite of the Leffes. Appearance: 8/10 Nose: 6/10 Taste: 7/10 Palate: 6/10 Overall: 15/20

A light and more commercial version of a trappist beer. Good head, good carbonation. Caramel, toasted malt, toffee and some nuts. Really easy to drink, and delicious. Very good considering it’s an industrial beer.

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 18, 2008
Bottle, 33cl. Pours dark amber, with short-living off-white head. Malt and molasses on the nose, and similar on the palate with yeast undertones. But not that much going on with it, overall. A shadow of a beer in comparison to a genuine secondarily fermented beer, and added sugar is no substitute.

Deep brown flat color from tap. Complex fruit sweetness. Nice medium body. One glass was great two might be a bit to much.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Had this at the Cafe Leffe in Paris, my only chance to try a new beer in an entire week in the city, a desolate wasteland of Kronenbourg and Heinekin. Deep brown, nice head. Flavor is lush malts, caramel accented, with loads of dark fruit. Quite complex and enjoyable. Would get more love here I suspect if it wasn’t an InBev product. Score perhaps inflated a bit by what the alternatives were during the week.

efrumtheidiot (190) - Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2008
pours a dark ruby brown (cola-colored) with an off-white head. special at tesco in prague! aroma is malty with some gentle dark fruits, a touch of brown sugar and some spice. taste is spiced with some faint dried fruits and lite brown sugar. not too complex, but has some nice flavors. even has a bit of a bitterish note in there. alcohol bites through with a slight numbing zing (no palate killer, but a little zing can be felt on the tongue), and a warming character on the finish. head retention is pretty good, with some foamy lacing present. mid- full bodied with a lightly prickly carbonation. overall a good brew. i wouldn’t pay too much for it, as i can see how this one could be overpriced (i payed 29Kc, or about $1.50 for a .33mL bottle). definitely worth a try though.

Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Picked up at the Ramstein AB shopette. Pours a nice cola colored brown. Aromas of malts, fruit, and a touch of spice. Has flavors of chocolate, caramel, and a touch of wood. Kinda thin in the finish.

I was disappointed and expected more as this was a dark color and good smell. The initial taste was malty with a hint of sweetness but lacked body and taste.

Aroma of malt. Coffee colour with a large off white head. Tastes of malt its an ok beer but not much to it.
