Poured into a Leffe goblet, brown with red highlights, good head. Smells of dark malts, candy sugar and yeast. Tastes sweet at start malt overall, then burnt coffee and liquorice, yeast too. Lightly bitter at the end. A "simple" dubbel, easy to drink but nothing more.

This was my introduction to Belgian beer while I was on a business trip to Luxembourg. And the bartender let me bring the Leffe goblet glass back. As such, it has a special place in my heart, though I’ve since discovered many finer Belgian brews. Pours a dark brown with amber highlights. Has the nice, brown Belgian head with beautiful, light carbonation. Tastes of bread, cocoa, roasted hops, and raisins. Finish with a toasted alcohol burn. This is nice. Wish it were distributed in the US, like it’s blonde sibling.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2007
A beefier, browner version of its blonde cousin. Tim Webb calls this one a "tasty but safe" beer and I can’t put it any better!

Tasted 2007-07-22. Has the colour of a watered down cola drink. Smells like cloves and caramel. Tastes like banana, burned sugar, cloves and molasses. Round taste!

Lively. Nice rich colour. Spices, dark fruit, malt and brown sugar are all in the aroma..

Goodgrief (1869) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 6, 2007
I don’t know much about Belgians too say too much. I liked it...it wasn’t overpowering and had a nice hop/malt balance. I’d have this again, but I wouldn’t go out looking for it. It was ridiculously, expensive, though...so that effects my rating (even if it shouldn’t).

davegore (222) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2007
Nice dark but slightly opaque brown, lively in the glass. Strong sweet caramel on the nose leading nicely onto rich caramel in the mouth, dark chocolate, rich fruit

From bottle (chilled) Jazz Cellar, Edinburgh. Similar to Old Peculiar but thicker, heartier... tasting like it looks. More sweet than bitter. Carmel.
