33cl bottle. Very minimal transparency, almost opaque dark brown/black with tiny hints of a reddish brown shining through with light. Tan head with solid tan lacing. The nose is very fruity, cranberry, cherry, bakers chocolate, wet forest floor- itís quite earthy, some minimal fig, no alcohol on the nose. A little bit of sweetness on the tasting initially with the carbonation and bitterness taking over the finish, quite smooth on the palate. Medium-bodied,t a little oily for the style. A medium-lasting finish with an average-lively carbonation. I prefer the blond and even the royale by Leffe, glad to have tried this, but Iíd look elsewhere because there are greater dubbels much more readily available.

Drink cool 8-10įC Eye: Pours a dark coffee-brown colour with a big beige not too quickly dissipating head and nice medium carbonation. Nose: dark fruit, raisins, dates, yeast, cran- and other berries. Mouth: coffee, raisins again, malts, caramel perhap, hops as well. not as fruity as in the nose but in a good way. creamy texture. Palate: coffee, yeast, slightly roasted nuts. Overall: nice brune beer. donít drink too cold! i actually prefer this one over the blonde. i really like the fact that it isnít as strong as other belgian-style beers.

Beardbeerman (109) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
330ml bottle served around 12 degrees in a calice: Pours quite a black robe showing fiery bronze highlights. The creamy head is beige expands to about a finger or so and retains moderately leaving a rough lacing. The nose is pleasant and offers roasted malts, caramel and some spice. On the tongue, the ale is sweet with hints of chocolate and caramel and good toasted nuts. The hops take over to let it finish slightly bitter and dry. Mouthfeel is light and just a bit sharp. I like this brown ale because I think it is a good beginnerís belgian ale. Anyone unfamiliar with the style will easily be able to enjoy its moderate complexity. I would best describe it as an everyday belgian brown ale.

Batavi (9) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2014 does not count
Leffe Bruin uit 25cl Leffe glas. Bier is helder donker roodbruin mahonie kleurig met een licht beige schuimkraag. Aroma is niet heel sterk, licht geroosterde mout en karamel. Smaak heel lekker zacht, licht zoet met wederom licht geroosterde mout en karamel. Een prima abdij dubbel bier met wel een beetje waterige smaak. Afdronk is licht gebrande mout met lichte hop smaak, beetje waterig ook. De Leffe bruin is ondanks dat het een massaproduct is, een prima dubbel Abdij bier, zelfs een van de betere Belgische bieren in deze bierstijl.

Marcius (226) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - DEC 25, 2014
Appearance with dark brown color and average head. Caramel and toasted malt aroma. On the palate, it is very balanced (bitterness/sweet). It is a great dubbel!

The aroma is full of chocolate, wheat and dried fruits. The color is dark and caremel-like. The taste is full of wheat and a little bit of chocolate and some caramel. A decent beer.

WillemsUrenkel (664) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2014
0,33 l bottle. A darkest red brown in the glass, big light tanned head. Resin and dark fruits, caramell and hints of peat on the nose. Taste is fruity, mid sweetnees, yeasty, peat, little bit dry. Nice one.

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 (154) - 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 youíve ever had a great quad, why would you drink this one? Sorry, I just donít get it.
