330 mL bottle. Dark brown, with a film of sticky head. Aroma is slightly sweet, with fruit and a touch of spice. Taste is good. Less sweetness throughout, and more bitterness at the end than Leffe Blonde. Brown sugar sweetness, with roasted malt and a touch of fruit.

On tap at the Dog and Pony in Renton. Fruit, nuts, toffee in the nose and taste, with just enough hops for a clean finish. Tasty stuff indeed!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Dog and Pony. This is phenomenal stuff. Pours thick, dark, surging brown with a thick, moussy, tan head and visible carb. Lots of green apple and pears in the nose. Thick body and active carb. Sharp, bracing attack, but not tart or overbearing. Wonderful progression off such a tree-fruity nose. Thick sweet malt with some almonds, toffee, and light toast in the palate. Clean finish. Very well done. Complex and satisfying.

Pours a reddish brown with and offwhite head. Aroma and Flavour of fruit, malt, chocolate, molasses and maybe coffee. Smooth taste. Better than Blond I would have to say.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sweet coffee and dark chocolate nose. Beige, quickly dissipating, short head with dark brown and reddish body. Sweet, fruit, coffee and dark chocolate flavor. The palate is rich and full also. Not too bubbly, excellently balanced. Was expecting roughly the same as Leffe Blond but was pleasantly surprised... This one is much better in almost all respects.
