Abundant and dense foam; much supporter and of optimal persistence. Dark brown color, limpid and bubbly. Decided scent, alcoholic and with detached notes of wine and must. Sweetish and agreeable taste. Enough along final and with flowery rumors.

Had this for the first time in Brugges. Disappointed to learn that it’s not available in the US, but still snagged a few bottles. Rich dark brown with slight amber hue and bubbly tan lacing head. Sweet aroma with caramel notes. Smooth palate. Good bruin. Good Leffe.

Brown coloured beer, nice head. Typical nuts-caramel-combination, think Affligem but then much sweeter. Makes it a bit more tastier as a whole. Quite boring, but very ok and really drinkable

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2012 Bottle. Chocolate malt and cola aroma. Medium brown color - clear with no head. Thick chocolate malt flavor with moderate acidity. Nice and chewy.

Not for me, but it is amasing. Pours a lovley deep amber that just touches on brown, low carbonation with a well laced white head. Aroma is of sweet fruit, plumb, unroasted nut, and a touch of cocoa. Palat is silky, smoth, low carbonation. Flavour is sweet grassy malt, with bubble gum hints, floral hop and a medium low yeast note. After taste is sweet, more yeast, touch of bubble gum, with a final hint of, sweetened almonds. Great Dubbel, If you like them. Cheers

This beer does pour out a nice inviting brown, with a decent head. The smell is rather inviting with hints of nuts and possibly coffee. The taste is decent for a dark with hints of chocolate and nuts. The follow through is a bit of a bitter finish. Overall nice brew.

Bottle. dk-brown mahogany, healthy looking tan head. Nuts, caramel, chocolates. Simple but I liked it a lot. Excellent sweet finish that makes you wish you had something else in your refrigerator except high ABV brews that will stop you from playing online poker later and crappy J-beers. Nice malts, too.

From a bottle...served in a 440 ml. tumbler.
Pours a dark chocolate brown with a moderate white head and lacing.
More watery than I remember it being last time but still mildly nutty. Nicely bitter in the finish.
No aroma noticeable to my abused nose besides a little malt and too much water.
Disappointing and overpriced but still a heck of a lot better than most of the easily available alternatives.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2005 A dark amber in color. I enjoyed this more then the Blonde. Poured with a nice head that seemed to stick around. Could taste a bit of malt and also similarities with Leffe Blonde. Something in there makes you know it’s a Leffe.

a mes rate:
bit of a regular for me as i can get it just up the road. standard dark. nice head but dies quickly. fair bit of lacing, malty and sweet flavour. nothing to write home about but drinkable and does the trick when there is nothing else available
