Nice but uncomplicated. The lack of stimulation to the tastebuds lets it down a little, but strong and pleasant enough to enjoy. Whether I choose to drink it depends on the alternatives my free house has to offer.

Dark brown color, with some red reflex; medium sized creamy head. Average malt and caramel aroma, as well for the flavor; medium low bitterness. Simple but not bad.

2003-06-23, bottle, 4-4-6-3-12=29
Dark amber, simple malt aroma. Medium strength body, well structured, light malt, sweet caramel; ending alcohol touch. Quite boring Dubbel.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2003
Nice light brown head. Dark body. Aroma; sweet, overripe apple, dough. Sweet taste - gentle and simple but nice - followed by a little bitter-dry finish.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2003
Draught. Faint sweet malt aroma with decent head. Warm malt and carmel flavors, slightly sweet with yeast undertones. Nice with a steak.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2003
Draught: Almost no aroma - slight sour scent. Appearance is very nice in the glass - black with light tan coloured head. Flavour was weak - no bold flavours anywhere. Very watery. Kept trying to pick up on something interesting, but nothing happening here.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Draught Thick foamy chocalate tinged head. This had some deep ripe fruit tones in it, but I thought they were lost quickly. Tastes much better as it warms up and the sweetness does not take over completely. Also had some cookie/honey taste in it, not a very good description, but there was a good body to it. Needs much more complexity though. Problems with carbonation even on draught.

Being a dark brew man, and also a great fan of other Leffe brews, it came as a treat to sample this one off the tap. It has all the malty chocolate flavours you expect in a premium brune, and leaves you wanting another.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - APR 27, 2003
Like a yeasty pale beer. Like a bad triple with brown coloring agents. Not very traditional.

Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 27, 2003
Slightly sweet, yeasty aroma. Flavor is also fairly sweet with roasted malt. Smooth finish, but not as good as I expected.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - APR 22, 2003
This Leffe has the same nasty yeast aroma and flavour as the other Leffe beers. I cannot help it, but I think they're awful.
