Dark reddish brown colour with tiny head. Aroma od dark fruits, roasted malts, some hebs. The same is flavour with little bitter and malty - smoked aftertaste. Good beer but not superlative.

Cybion (89) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2015
Bottle, 750 ml (only 2 quid from the local tesco!). Pours clear, dark ruby with hints of brown. Head is quite significant and light tan in colour. Lacing is also quite prominent. Very smokey, meaty aroma at the front backed up with wood, herbs and spices. Brown sugar and molasses also prominent alongside hints of banana and dark fruits, reminiscent of a dark german lager. So far so good, and surpassing the blonde by some way! Taste is a little harder to discern - malts rush to the forefront bringing bread, cereal and small hints of caramel. Some raisins and other dark fruits form the subtler middle notes. Small bitter malty notes to finish, along with more cereal All a little too subdued overall, and an overtly watery feel predominates much of the experience. Generally good on the palate with the smooth, medium body and moderate carb, no complaints. Was perhaps expecting something more interesting in the taste, but decent overall, especially that aroma. Just prefer my belgians to be a bit more flavoursome I suppose.

azzie (377) - - APR 7, 2015
Bottle 0.33l. Clear very dark mahogany liquid with soft beige head. Medium body and carbonation. A bit alcoholy. Annoying sweetness, wine taste, but ok for the price.

Just superb beer, long lasting tiny bubbles and full of a highly complex flavour.

Gangstergafje (90) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2015
Dark reddish brown beer. Nice soft drape of foam, after the thick fluffy foam has disappears. The smell is delicious. It has a undefinable aroma, which comes back in the taste. It is the special distinct taste of Leffe. It must be in their yeast or their hops. The taste is perfectly balanced. It has a little touch of sourness. It has rather light body, I mean, not as heavy as you expect for a dark beer like this. However, on a Wednesday evening, this is not a problem.

TedE (359) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2015
On tap in Brussels. Dark brown beer with lasting cream head. Slight malt nose. Oily texture with a bit of zing on the tongue. Aftertaste is smoky, malty followed by slight hops then late caramel. Delicious.
