Beautiful dark brown body. Creamy light white/brown head that sticks to the glass. Tastes like dark fruit and a bit woody. Long lasting sweet bitter aftertaste.

(Draft. 03/2006) My last beer consumed in Belgium, at Zaventum National Airport, killing time before going through security. Not bad. Big, off-white head. Clear. Deep, deep brown. Big malty aromas. Sweet, malty taste. Some DMS. Have one and forget it. Relatively thin on the palate in the end.

Smooth, rich, sweet. Easy to drink. Induces a fortified wine sleepiness. Thick and tasty. Charming, I thought.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2012 Bottle. I had the pleasure of having this in Belgium, during my stay in Iper. I enjoyed the Brune with a fantastic pizza. Served with the proper Leffe glassware, it poured a dark brown color, with a light tan head. Aroma was fruity, like plum, but a bit of chocolate as well. Flavor was very smooth, sweet, and well balanced. Moderate carbonation. Wonderful malty finish, but did not mask the flavor. Later in the evening, I moved to another establishment, and ordered another. The location played a part, but the most relaxing beer I have had yet. Not easy to get the Brune where I live.

Thanks to fatty for this... Appears a dark brown with a small tan head. Lots of lacing scattered everywhere along the glass. Smell is of delicate caramel, cocoa, with vanilla notes and yeast. Taste is of the same delicate aromas with the light amounts of caramel, cocoa, vanilla, and perhaps a hint of yeast & raisins in the mix. Mouthfeel is of a super smooth, velvetty batch. This may be one of the smoothest, silkiest brews that I have had. Really nice beer.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2007 The color is dark brown with a beige head.The taste is sweet caramel with also some taste of spicies. The aroma is very pleasant to the nose. Their is also a very strong taste of malt. All in all a good Belgium beer.

330mL bottle from LCBO. Pours to a dark brown with tones of red. Head is a light toupe colour, leaves some thin lace down the side of the glass, although not as much as I would have expected. Aroma is of malt with notes of plum. Taste is much the same, although with a short finish, and the body seems slightly thin. All in all, a decent beer, but inferior to, say, Unibroue’s Trois Pistoles (which is also much cheaper). I was slightly disappointed.

33 cl bottle. Thanks Turg. Pours deep brown with tan head. Malty aroma. Faint smells of plums. Sugary taste. A little spicy but a little thin and quick to finish. Good beer but not great.
