Dark reddish brown with a roasty stale coffee aroma. Malty flavours with some mettalicflavour in the background, rather thin, fizzy and short.

Some spicy aromas to start with-roast malt and chocolate stand out. The flavors are rich, with warming chocolate malts that are quite bitter with little residual sweetness. The aftertaste is lingering, with more dark chocolate and roast malt. Great smoothness.

This beer was mild in flavour for the style,almost subdued.
Pours a nice brown colour with a swirled off white and tan head.the nose was mild malt and fruit.
The flavour is dark malt and fruit,mostly plums and prunes,again not intense but nice and mild,this beer just leans to wards sweet.
A good beer,easy to drink,and nice to look at.

Dark cola colour with a large, rocky, light tan head. I quite like the aroma of this one, malty, caramel and raisins. The flavour is quite balanced across the length of the drink, spice, malt, brown sugar, medium body and a good finish.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very dark red/brown that leaves a thick head that lasts for a good time. It has a mild aroma, mostly malty and fruity (banana). The flavor is very malty and sweet. It finishes the way it begins: malty and sweet. The bitterness increases with the temperature, but it never gets to be too much. Overall, it’s a good example of a Belgian dubbel.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Co-op, Stirchley, Birmingham. Proper brown, with a tight ring of froth. Baked bean/frozen pea aroma - not great. Wheaty, rural taste, with some quite tough, gritty choc. Fizzy choppy mouthfeel. Pretty tasty though a little ragged. More + than -.

Leffe Brune pours, oddly enough, a brown colour with a thin white head. The aromas are of belgian yeasts, spice and some fruits but none of the smells could be described as overpowering.The taste is much the same yeasty, sweet a very mild acohol kick, while this dosen’t have the flavour depth of some dubbels it’s "thinness" would allow you to drink it all night long. A session dubble?It was alright in that respect.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown color with a good looking, creamy, medium, light brown head. Decent aroma of brown sugar and spices. The first flavor I notice is roasted malt, then some brown sugar joins the party, also there might be some mild spices. Bitter finish. Light to medium body, liquorous texture, soft carbonation. Better than its blonde sister but still just a little better than ordinary.
