350ml. Pours dark brown with nice sized white head. Aromas of molasses, yeast, malt and a hint of chocolate. Flavours of coffee, malt, and caramel with a little spice in there. Smooth palate with a bit of a molasses finish. Body is a bit thinner than I was expecting from the color.

I have had this a bunch of times now, a while ago gotmos brought a 750mL back from Belgium, it’s available on tap in the States but this rating was basically a way to pass the time at the Kiev Airport at the Belgian Beer Bar. Poured into glass with a dark brown color and amber tints. It has a large frothy head that turns into a surface covering lacing. Aroma is like the regular Leffe with a very specific "fishiness" and some sugar sweetness behind that. Taste is a cheap sweetness and a bad herbal-ness. Ends with a watery prune flavor. Light bodied and a weird sweet beer. I used to enjoy both Leffes a lot more but have really lost interest in both over the years.
Tap, large Leffe glass.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 Bottle from the LCBO. Extremely dark red with small off-white head. Spicy sweet yeast in the aroma. Caramel malt flavour with the slightest hint of coffee. Remarkably smooth on the palate. Goes down with remarkable ease. Must investigate further... Updated: Glass at the Pogue Mahone. Flavour seems diluted somewhat, but with the sweetness emphasized. Artificial, plastic aftertaste lingers in the mouth. I’ll pass on this next time. Scores adjusted to reflect crap tap and decent bottle.

33cl bottle from systembolaget. Very dark and clear red with a big off-white head that dies and leaves some foam and lacing. Sweet yeasty aroma almost like a german hefe, with some banana even, and slight acidity. Very carbonated, medium to light body. Flavor is mostly sweet sugar and alcohol with some caramel and vanilla in the back. almost no bitterness in the finish, just kinda sticky and sugary. A little too sweet and simple to be a good dubbel, but better than the blond and overall pretty drinkable.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2007
On tap, from old notes. Deep brown in color with rich tan foam. Aroma is brown sugar, yeasty spiciness and dark malts. Fairly sweet flavor with a subtle note of oxidation and hint of tartness in the finish.

Une des bonnes bières disponibles en épicerie! Un goût caramélisé avec des touches de chocolat. Manque peut-être un peut de puissance.

FatPhil (11817) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 10, 2007
330ml bottle. Redish brown, thick fluffy head. Surprisingly limp aroma compared with the blonde, had side-by-side. Heavy carbonation makes this a bit sharp if even a little too cool - let it warm and settle a bit. Taste is fairly bitter, both hoppy and burnt malts. However, it’s a mellow bitterness, and not at all intrusive. Very tasty, never a bad option.

Bottle: Trappist Glass. It has a nice dark brownish red look to it with a off whiteish head that lingers and is thick. A nice capping for the beer. Aroma of yeast barley and Dark friut. Lovely lacing on the glass as it goes down, that keeps you wanting more.. Tastes fruitty, but not sickly sweet with a slight caramel aftertaste. I think it’s quite high in the carbonation. It is one of the better choices for a popular easy to get hold of abbey ale.
