This is an ok brune. It is way to sweet for me and there is next to no hop flavor. The sweetness adds to it’s drinkability but I think they should focus more on bringing some other flavors out. St. Feuillien Brune is alot better.

Pours a gfreat dark-brown color with a beige foamy head. Aroma of roasted malt added with coffee, chocolate and spices. Malty taste but does not deliver what aroma promises. A good beer after all.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at Dovetail, Farringdon, London, 4 Aug 2008) Dark brown colour with a frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with chocolate, spices (clove, cardamom) and roasted malt. Malty, sweet taste with notes of chocolate, brown sugar and cola. Got a kind of industrial feel to it (no surprises). Way too sweet. Taste doesn’t manage to deliver what a promising aroma indicates. As with the other Leffe beers, quality seems to be going down, but it’s still drinkable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,33 l bottle. Dark brown color. Nice beer with a complex, fruity taste. Aromas mostly of roasted malt, licorice and various fruits (cherries, raspberries, apples). Very sweet aftertaste. Nothing too special compared to similar Belgian beers, I guess, but still a very good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. It poured a dark reddish-brown, almost black colour with a medium head that disappears fast and leaves a thin white roof in the glass. The aroma smells of dark fruits and malts. The flavour is dry and bitter and tastes of malts, dark fruits and grains. It has a medium long aftertaste.
