On tap. The beer has a light fluffy head. Smooth with a rich flavor but not over-powering. A very drinkable beer that has kept me satisfied.

33 cL bottle. Pours deep brown with a light red hue and an off-white and lacing head. Aroma is dark malty with notes of canesugar, some yeast and spices, esteric and a minor note of dried fruit (in a Belgian way). Flavour starts subdued sweet with a light malty note turning slowly bitter and esteric towards the end. At all times mellow/mild. Ends with a creamy malt flavour and a slight bitterness in the far finish.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 On tap at Chez Noir in Kingston. Pours deep brown colour with large and eventually receding thick head. Smell is heavily malty with a hint of fruit. Dark tasting, with a little fruit, and something that kind of reminds me of Guinness Extra Stout. Delicious brew.

350ml. Pours dark brown with nice sized white head. Aromas of molasses, yeast, malt and a hint of chocolate. Flavours of coffee, malt, and caramel with a little spice in there. Smooth palate with a bit of a molasses finish. Body is a bit thinner than I was expecting from the color.

I have had this a bunch of times now, a while ago gotmos brought a 750mL back from Belgium, itís available on tap in the States but this rating was basically a way to pass the time at the Kiev Airport at the Belgian Beer Bar. Poured into glass with a dark brown color and amber tints. It has a large frothy head that turns into a surface covering lacing. Aroma is like the regular Leffe with a very specific "fishiness" and some sugar sweetness behind that. Taste is a cheap sweetness and a bad herbal-ness. Ends with a watery prune flavor. Light bodied and a weird sweet beer. I used to enjoy both Leffes a lot more but have really lost interest in both over the years.
Tap, large Leffe glass.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 Bottle from the LCBO. Extremely dark red with small off-white head. Spicy sweet yeast in the aroma. Caramel malt flavour with the slightest hint of coffee. Remarkably smooth on the palate. Goes down with remarkable ease. Must investigate further... Updated: Glass at the Pogue Mahone. Flavour seems diluted somewhat, but with the sweetness emphasized. Artificial, plastic aftertaste lingers in the mouth. Iíll pass on this next time. Scores adjusted to reflect crap tap and decent bottle.

33cl bottle from systembolaget. Very dark and clear red with a big off-white head that dies and leaves some foam and lacing. Sweet yeasty aroma almost like a german hefe, with some banana even, and slight acidity. Very carbonated, medium to light body. Flavor is mostly sweet sugar and alcohol with some caramel and vanilla in the back. almost no bitterness in the finish, just kinda sticky and sugary. A little too sweet and simple to be a good dubbel, but better than the blond and overall pretty drinkable.
