This beer does pour out a nice inviting brown, with a decent head. The smell is rather inviting with hints of nuts and possibly coffee. The taste is decent for a dark with hints of chocolate and nuts. The follow through is a bit of a bitter finish. Overall nice brew.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Bottle. dk-brown mahogany, healthy looking tan head. Nuts, caramel, chocolates. Simple but I liked it a lot. Excellent sweet finish that makes you wish you had something else in your refrigerator except high ABV brews that will stop you from playing online poker later and crappy J-beers. Nice malts, too.

LeopardMan (53) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 31, 2005
From a bottle...served in a 440 ml. tumbler. Pours a dark chocolate brown with a moderate white head and lacing. More watery than I remember it being last time but still mildly nutty. Nicely bitter in the finish. No aroma noticeable to my abused nose besides a little malt and too much water. Disappointing and overpriced but still a heck of a lot better than most of the easily available alternatives.

TomDecapolis (4605) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 23, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2005 A dark amber in color. I enjoyed this more then the Blonde. Poured with a nice head that seemed to stick around. Could taste a bit of malt and also similarities with Leffe Blonde. Something in there makes you know it’s a Leffe.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2005
a mes rate: bit of a regular for me as i can get it just up the road. standard dark. nice head but dies quickly. fair bit of lacing, malty and sweet flavour. nothing to write home about but drinkable and does the trick when there is nothing else available

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2012 Years ago I used to drink quite a bit of this on draft at the Sharp Edge, it was a pleasant lower priced Belgian draft for them and was nice to finish off an evening. Now, in 2011 I finally get around to trying a bottle and found it to be far superior - the flavors that were muted in the draft really jump out. I gave the draft a 3.5 but the rating here now refers to the bottle. +++ Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with an enormous billowing creamy beige head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was caramel, cherry, light toasty malts and vanilla. The flavor was tart cherries, caramel, toffee, malted milk, cocoa and Dr. Pepper. The finish was long tart cherry, caramel and malted milk. Fairly full bodied and creamy. Well done.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Brownish (no surprise). Very sweet, malty flavour with a touch of licorice. Gets a bit cloying in the end. 160493

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2005
(Bottle) Very dark, head disappears quickly. I’m in love with the aroma. It’s very malty and full. Flavor is full and rounded but it lacks some bitterness.

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2005
pours a dark brown/red colour. with a moderate lasting head. nose is fruity, plums, strawberrys and gooseberrys can be found, aromas of yeast and a slight peperryness come through as well. reasonably bodied with a dry finish that leaves a slightly unpleasant sourness on the tongue. overall quite nice.
