Dark brown colour with a huge, frothy head. Caramel aroma with spices and sandalwood. Wonderful, rich taste of caramel,fruit cake and licorice. A touch of dryness at the end exactly balances the sweetness. Better than the Leffe blond.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2005 classic! The brown leffe is not my favourite, I’ve always found the caramel taste was a bit toom much. Good beer still.

Bottle
Dark mahogany, with clingy, pearly white lace that became more and more grey as my pint went down.
Yeast, bread, caramel and alcohol vapors was the arome profile.
Caramel malt, just enough alcohol give it a good body, rounded off with just a touch of bitterness. Not bad at all.

darkko (99) - Kingsport, Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Rich gold color with a bold malty taste. Good hop character. Deceptively mild to have strong alcohol content. Had on tap in Belgium.

Fukito (738) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 21, 2005
Bottle - August 2005 Pours a dark rubby colour, with reddish hues, it develops a beatifull white frothy head that leaves a decent lacing. Aroma is chocolaty and bready, yeasty. Flavour is sour-sweet, with hints of chocolate and raisins, but somehow sour in the middle. Palate is short and medium boddied.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2005
Served too cold in a Belgian bar. Dark brown, with a more hoppy than malty aroma, but with notes of raisin, chocolat and fruits. It tastes quite acidic, with a more bitterish aftertaste.

blankboy (6051) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2005
Draught at Milestone’s. Pours a very dark brown with a dissipating large tan rocky head. Decent lacing. Sweet woodsy aroma of cocoa, dark fruit, spices and roasted malt. Flavour, also sweet, had hints of alcohol (wine-like), dark fruit and spices (cloves, pepper and more) with a lightly bitter aftertaste. A decent Dubbel.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - AUG 14, 2005
Dark to tan brown. Big belgian aroma of fruits and spice. Once in the mouth, is similar to many browns (dubbels), mildly sweet, a little roasted, and somewhat watery. Feels like its missing something. Sweetness goes unbalanced and bothers the palate.
