Trying this for the first time. Always liked the Blonde and the Brown doesnít disappoint. Canít say I taste the "bitter" though, but maybe thatís because I drink a lot of bitter beers.

Leffe Brune is one of those imports thatís pretty easy to locate and not too expensive. Better yet, itís also damn tasty. A beautiful brown color and a tight, robust head grab your attention from the start. Aroma is estery and rich though it could be a little bigger. The flavor really is the selling point, just as it ought to be. Multidimensional maltiness with candy-like sweetness and dark fruits at the beginning. The syrupy middle is redolent of plum and corn - Iím impressed to say that itís not at all cloying. Finish is sticky and bit spicy. Though the carbonation is nice and lively in this brew, it gets a little intense toward the end. Of course, it also helps to cut through the full body and dense sugars. Brune may not be the most special or rare Belgian Ale but itís an excellent abbey beer from a 12 ounce bottle.

westler (68) - Stuttgart, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2014
Pours chestnut brown with a small light brown, quickly dissolving head. Malty, bread-like aroma. Sweet, full malty taste, hints of hazlenut.. Slightly bitter, but short finish.

Heldere roodzwarte kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt mout, iets gebrand, caramel. Smaakt caramel, mout, drop. Beetje plakkerig.

Botella de 330ml. Copa CŠliz de Leffe. Color caoba contintes rubŪ profundo a contraluz. Espuma beige, cremosa y persistente que deja un amplio anillo en las paredes. Aromas tostados, chocolateados, herbŠceos, con sutil diacetilo y trazos de canela. Presenta recuerdos de laca al atemperarse. Entrada dulce y tostada redondeada por notas azucaradas de caŮa y ciruela madura. Cuerpo medio-pleno y carbonataciůn moderada. Paladar untoso y denso con toques picantes y chispeantes. Sabores de galletas danesas de chocolate, toffees y mermelada de ciruela que quedan equilibrados por un punto amargo bajo pero adecuado. Prolongado final dulce y con delicado amargor y retrogusto afrutado. Deliciosa!! 330ml bottle. Leffe Chalice glass. Mahogany color & dark ruby tints to the light. Beige, creamy & lasting crown leaves a wide ring on sides. Toasted, chocolaty, herbs, subtle diacetyl & hints of cinnamon are displayed to the nose. Solvent-like notes are shown to as it gets warm. Sweet toasted upfront rounded by sugary notes of cane sugar & ripe plum. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Oily & dense mouthfeel with spicy touch. Danish biscuit flavor, toffee & plum syrup notes in the middle are well balanced by low but enough bitterness. Long sweet/delicate bitter finish & fruity aftertaste. Delicious!!

Moebbels (288) - FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
A clear brown body covered by a large not quite white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass. Nose has notes of syrup, yeast and some spiciness. Taste starts off with a pleasant honey-like sweetness but is then followed by a fairly strong and lonng lasting bitterness. Carbonation is high and the mouthfeel overall on the fuller side. Overall a nice good beer but the heavy bitterness feels a bit out of place.

Senka (425) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 15, 2014
33cl bottle. Served in a trappist glass. Pours brown with white head. Actually it looked this time that head changes color from brown to white. Not my favorite dubbel. I usually buy it every other year. Yeasty and earthy. Slightly thinner then expected. Massively sold everywhere, and that is good. You can have some decent dubbel amidst lagers.
