Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 Bottled 33cl. Red-brown beer with a nice head. Fruity aromas.. Apples, plums, caramel, overripe bananas. Sweet, hints of licorice in the taste, plums, some elements of cherry, butterscotsch, maybe some slightly hay-like aromas... Some anise, reminds me of a bit of "Pastis". Extremly yeasty, somewhat not that enjoyable finish with hints of licorice and apple. Not that terribly pleasant. 6/3/5/3/11. Rerate: Overly sweet with notes of candy, burnt plastic, coffee, banana and marshmallows. Poor taste. Good yeasty peppery finish, though rather on the sweet side. 5/3/5/2/10

Served in my Leffe Glass, it pours a brown colour with redish reflections, a very good brownish head that last for a while and leaves a good lace. Just as Leffe blonde, I think this beer is not what it used to be, but itís still a nice one. Smell is not as strong as it used to be, but it has hints of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Maybe a bit of bay leaf? and some apple. Flavour continues developing as long as drink, it seems to expand, taste of chocolate, some vanilla, coffee and raisins. Good, but I missed the old one.

Diablo9845 (62) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2007
On tap at Chaucers. Nice darker beer with a sweet smell. A sweet, somewhat fruity taste with a hint of caramel. I liked this beer more than the blonde IMO, and I think it gave more flavour and a nicer aroma. Enjoyable and easy to drink.

on tap at Eulogy Belgian Tavern in Philly. dark brown-ruby body, thick tan head. I prefer the blonde but Iím pretty sure thats just my personal style preference. smells of dried fruit, coffee and yeast. tastes of light coffee, caramel with lots of chewy fruits and yeast. dates, grapes, plum and ALCOHOL. also some chocolate at finish with yeast aftertastes.

beervis (243) - Taylorís Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2007
A little like an English brown ale in its nut and caramel sweetness, but with the same spiciness as Leffe Blond - for a second I thought I was drinking the same beer. Sweet spicy aroma, nice maltiness, medium body. Very very nice, if a bit too sweet to drink in bulk - it hides the alcohol a little too well....

Very nice dark beer, long lasting creamy head. Malty nose, with scent of caramel. Very gentle palate, alcohol perfectly hidden. Perfectly composed beer, best one available commercially IMO
