UPDATED: JAN 4, 2004 (On tap in London, Ont) Dark brown, beige head. Sweet caramel aroma. Sweet carmels in flavour. However nitro affect changes beer. Dry bitter in finish. Cloying sweetness near the end. Was a 3.9 would be way better with out nitro on tap.

Well known type of aroma typical for all decent Belgians. Dark deep amber with nice tough foam. Gentle soft velvety but so persuasive . Delicious .

Dark brown with a certain red brightness shining through, a nice tan head atop the shine. Nose first of all typically Belgian - spice, yeast and fruit - and then, what’s this? hints of smoke and sweet malt. Body is initially roasty, comes across spritzy. Alcohol is present as well as yeast. Finishes somewhat sweet with light drying hops and maybe even a hint of ripe banana. An interesting dubbel, a little spritzy for it’s own good, but complex nonetheless.

a beautiful fruity belgian, good with a hearty meal in the fall.

Well, this is an Old Faithful. Not a sporty flashy drop… but damn! You get solid consistency. We believe (unfortunately) that this beer will become the favourites of your Balmoral or eastern suburb 6 figure yuppies and… thus killing the true appreciation for this drop. Great for the brewer, but bad for R&D. this drop can still be developed. Has great potential for the novice market. Great colour, distinctive Belge character. A favourite of ours. Still good.....

Dark black/brown. Nice head. Warming up it acquires a sweet, malty aroma. Some dryness in the palate. Tasty!

A nice rich fruity, caramely flavor. A nice complement to the blonde.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2003 it is a dark brown beer with a sweet fruity tast.

johninmelb (1124) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2002
Chocolatey in a lot of ways - colour, smell, flavour. You can taste the alcohol in a not necessarily great way. Prefer it to the triple, and a nice drop of Belgian generally but nothing on the trappistes.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2002
Beautiful brown colour. Nice malty aroma with plenty of caramel. Flavour is sweet (again caramel) and malty with a medium bitter finish. Very pleasant, but a bit weak for a Belgian ale. Not the most interesting Leffe, but I probably have a weakness for the dark ales.
