3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Almost black, thin head. The aroma feels like old tobacco (gammelt røykehjørne), and is also sourish. Sweet flavour, hints of vanilla and smoke. A bit too much carbonation. Light and sweet aftertaste. (Bottle, Blå Rock, March 2007)

Dark brown beer from Leffe with an excellent taste. Has a nuts-taste which is very sharp and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
More character than the blond. Some burned/toasted malt, more bitterness and sourness. Run of the mill in Belgium, maybe, but it’s better that this conquers the world than Carlsberg or Bxx.

Another excellent beer by Leffe. Pours dark dark brown with a cloudy head. Goes down very smooth and has nice burnt flavors on the palete. An excellent beer and worth a try if you can find it.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from the Duke of York, Borough. Standard brune colour with a mediocre beige head. Nose of dark berries and malts. Sweet taste of malt, brown sugar and fruit cake. Lovely velvet mouthfel. A little too sweet, but really a nice beer for any occasion.

Dark brown colour with fruity / malty aroma. Fairly sweet front and medium hops finish. Smoother than a Chimay, but not my favorite Abbey.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at KClingers: Another amazing pull at KClingers, a beer I haven’t seen anywhere else in the US. It’s much darker than I remembered or expected. Drinks smooth and slightly roasty. The aroma is somewhat pruney, as is the flavor, but ulimately this is a damn good dark, sweet beer. (#2716, 2/17/2007)

Bottled. Darkish brown, pale white head. Sweet, fruity aroma. Sweet tasting, perhaps a hint of chocolate. Typical Leffe yeast flavour, a little warming. Not bad, not great.
