On tap: Passage Cafe, Brugge, Belgium. Dark amber w/ light tan head. Small bubbles. Aroma is of caramel, dark malts. Not a strong aroma at all though. Hops apparent in initial tastes. Bitter and floral as well. They give way to nice caramal malt tastes. Also notice some date-like sweetness. Body is smooth w/ moderate cloying. Delicious.

Wonderful Beer… The best beer I have had in the western hemisphere. Dark honey and fruit flavor, dark rich chocolate color, thick white head, with medium lacing. Extremely pleasant mouth feel and aroma. Worth every penny!!!

(on tap at lucky baldwins)Drank during 6th annual Belgium Beer festival. Pours a deep brown with a nice frothy head. Aroma has chocolaty notes. Nice and sweet, hints of cream and chocolate. Really drinkable. I love the richness of this beer. It seems that im more alone on how much i like this beer but none the less, it is one f my new favorites. Taste great on tap. Its unfortunate that the festival ends on sunday. I would sure love to has this beer on tap more often.

The weak link in Leffe’s regular line-up. The alcohol is poorly integrated and intrusive, which seems to me a general weakness across the range (with the exception of the Blonde and the Vieille Cuvee). Poured the colour of mudcake with a moderate beige head. The nose is dominated by alcohol but with hints of chocolate and strong tea. The palate is full and creamy. Some raisiny fruit in the middle but the dominant flavour is pure alcohol. I come back to this every few years and I’m always disappointed. (Bottle)

Looks good in the glass. A dark copper with a firm white head. Sweetish and similar to leffe blond. Fruity, with some hops. Not too bad.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 I expected more from this beer since I like so much dark beers, but it was better the blonde one, anyway this Monastic beers are great.

Brown body, translucent, with reddish hues; tall and lasting beige head. Abudant lace. Malty aroma (caramel, burnt sugar) with some yeast and traces of hops and fruit. Taste is bittersweet, caramel. Lacks some complexity, I had expected more fruity flavours. Medium palate. Creamy, very smooth mouthfeel. Tasty, balanced and easy to drink.

Bottled. Dark brown, almost opaque. Small white head, which disappears quickly. Fruity and yeasty smell. Sweet fruity taste, a bit "bitter" aftertaste, but the bitterness is good as it takes out the sweetness a bit.
