Boy, this one was fantastic. Nice brown colored ale with a mild Belgian style sweetness (and also some bitterness). Some very low levels of vinegar in the aroma and flavor, but not to that of a typical flemish sour. Head was solid, but the lacing maintained itself throughout the drink. I’ll get another one of these whenever I get the opportunity. Edit: My third tasting of this on draft in Canada resulted in a carboard type after taste. Not sure if that is typical for the Canadian version (if there is even such thing) or just the freshness of that keg. I’d drop my ratings if that happened again. But don’t worry (yet another update), it hasn’t happened again, many times a good deal in the US at The Half Moon in Kennett, PA!

Pours muddy brown with great brownish head. Aroma of nuts, burnt malts, cinnamon, cardemum and some regular sweetness. Flavour is much more caramel with tones of cinnamom. A slight bitterness at the end.

Nice 330ml bottle. Dark brown in colour with a off-white foam. Sweet malty nose. Flavour of caramel, toffee and citrus. Yeasty and bitter ending. Medium bodied. Good, but maybe a little too sweet (Oslo. 24.05.2006).

Ughsmash (7248) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2006
On tap at Hopleaf. Poured a deep hazy brown with a short layer of beige head. Nose carried an abundance of darker malts... brown sugar, toffee, and some toasty fruits. Smooth toasty brown sugar, darker fruits, and other dark malts in the flavor. Lower carbonation provided a cola-like feel... felt just OK. Sweet, toasty, malt finish. Nice brew, but nothing spectacular.

Had Leffe Brun in bottle in Amsterdam. Dark brown color, pleasant roasted sugary flavor. Pleasant finish, so-so after. Best drank quickly ;)

gnoff (8112) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2013 Bottle in the summer of 2005.
Brown color. Compared to the blonde it’s not as fresh in the scent. Almost unpleasant taste. Not my kind of beer at all.
4/3/4/3/8=2.2

Second rating on December 25, 2006.
Big bottle.
More a nice fruity and sweet tone to it than I remembered, the one time I had it before might have been a damaged bottle of some kind. Fresh fruity scent and taste, warming alcohol.
