Finwe (412) - Grankulla, - FEB 4, 2013
330 ml bottle from Tallinn. Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma comprises malt and caramel along with dark fruits and yeast. Quite sweet, malty flavour with a hint of bitterness. Malty finish with slight hoppy bitterness.

Barreras (968) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours a dark brown with roasted malt notes. A slight caramel flavor complimented by rich malt taste. Roasted nut lingers on the palate after the swallow. I thought this was more like a nut brown ale.

Transfer from BA review on 11-30-12- Poured from bottle into Leffe Chalice Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown color with a one finger tan head. The head has a very fantastic level of retention slowly fading slowly to give a wonderful level of lacing. Smell – The smell is big and sweet. The sweet is mainly of cherry and some banana and pineapple. Mixed with the fruity aromas is a good dose of roasted malt, a light nut, as well as notes of a yeasty nature. Taste – The taste begins on the sweeter side with flavors of cherry and plum mixed with a good brown bread flavor. As the taste advances some yeasty flavors soon come to the tongue and bring with them some flavors of banana and a light spice flavor. More toward the end of the taste, more sweet caramel and dark fruit and bready flavors come to the tongue and mix with a light alcohol flavor to leave a rather dark and sweet but balanced flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side with a carbonation level that is just below average. The medium creaminess is good as it keep the beer drinkable as well as compliments well the fruity flavors. The brew however is not so thin that the roasted and yeasty flavors are detracted from. A good solid mouthfeel. Overall – This is a fantastic brew. It has great dark fruit flavors, a good yeasty and bready taste as well as just the right amount of warming alcohol. Definitely one to have on occasion.

Garrold (1210) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
750ml bottle from Tesco. Two for a fiver! Clear, reddy amber. Bubbly, thick, sticky, off white head. Dried fruit. Granary bread. Light chocolate. Brown sugar. Taste is yeasty and dry, with a little bitterness. Soft, sugary palate. Finishes fruity dry, with bitterness right at the end. Very decent, especially factoring in the price.

giorgos_gtc (79) - GREECE - AUG 9, 2014
Belgian school is clear in the sense of this beer. Not something special in the aroma while tatse is caramel. Thin ring foam which is clear until the end.
