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.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Like a yeasty pale beer. Like a bad triple with brown coloring agents. Not very traditional.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly sweet, yeasty aroma. Flavor is also fairly sweet with roasted malt. Smooth finish, but not as good as I expected.

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.

A little sweet, some perfume but fresh. An oily palate.
A nice surprise to me even if it's not my kinda beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2004 Bottled. Dark mahogany colour. Malty aroma with vague citric notes and also yeast. Lively mouthfeel. Tasty and full-bodied with yeast and fruit notes. Very well balanced but a bit undecisive. The flavours don't really come through, and the finish is a bit short.

Draught: This is a damn tasty beer. At first it tastes very malty and the after taste is oakish with a hint of roasted coffee. An enjoyable beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Red brown, yeasty head. Dark complex flavours with fruit, raisins, oak. Tastes sweet and toffee like.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Deep ruby red, initially good head that quickly collapses, and moderate condition. Surprisingly complex aromas (despite my expectations) of roasted coffee, chocolate and wood smoke, almost porterlike. Sweet malt in the mouth and a slight lingering roast coffee note in the short finish. Starts with promise but fails to deliver in the end.

Nice harmonic complexity between sweetness and bitterness. Dark and clear. Big head and lacing
