Chudwick (2209) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - NOV 17, 2012
11.2oz bottle - pours dark amber with great lacing and three fingers of tan head. Noseis candy sugar. Flavor adds caramel and noticeable spices. Sweet. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Boring for the style.

BritAlesRule (214) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Aroma of soured dark fruits, confectioners sugar and a hint of toffee. A wonderful deep brown beer with a lasting lace on my Westmalle chalice. Flavor is sweet dark fruits, maybe some jammy plum, and a little nuttiness, with some mild hop and sourness coming through on an oily medium mouthfeel. Just about as good a beer as a person can buy at under 10 bucks a six-pack.

coachd (141) - Missouri, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Smells of dark fruit, booze, yeast and slight caramel. Pours dark brown with bone white head of foam. Tastes like light dark fruit, but muted, kind of like Belgian Quad Light. Palate is weak; if you’ve ever had a great quad, why would you drink this one? Sorry, I just don’t get it.

I have tried every Leffe exept the "Vieille cuvée" and that’s clearly the best from far.

Long lasting foam. Great dark amber color. Well balanced and drinkable. Burnt brown sugar in taste, dark honey (!), long lasting aftertaste of slight sourness.

Slaz (53) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2014
Brown with a small greyish head. Smells and tastes like caramel with a yeasty and bitter finish, and is slightly sweet (grape sugar?). Nothing spectacular, but surprisingly easy to drink for such a dark beer.

Nice dark abbey beer. Not very outspoken but has good quality. Deep dark brown with an off white head. Body is a bit thin. Flavor is of roasted malts caramel and some bitter hops and yeast. There is a good funky element as well. Easy to drink and well brewed but has no wow for me.
