Nice aroma. This beer tastes similar to their blond option too me but with a duller aftertaste. Another very nice Leffe beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,33 cl. 8,2%. 06/2014. Color tostado oscuro con espuma blanca. Aroma y sabor a azucar tostado y malta. Al final del trago se aprecia el toque a alcohol, que no llega a ser un problema. Una buena cerveza para saborear.

Palate: intense malty sweets, bread, caramel, only lightly bitter at the average-long end. Overall: nice sweet palate, nice Belgian Strong Ale. Bottle from Beer of Belgium, Ypres.

The classic dark fruit aroma that you’d expect, lacking a decent head though. The palate is short and alcohol comes through, just not as rich or indulgent as other Belgian ales.

oliodnb (305) - ITALY - MAY 21, 2014
Dark reddish amber, white head. Smells of sweet malts, caramel, some molasses and light spices. Similar taste with some sweet berries notes and a nice honey-like sweetness. No noticeable hops.

slawek (139) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Copper, clear body with big head, quickly reducing to small ring. Nice aroma of peach, bread with some caramel and slight alcohol. Flavors: alcohol with some caramel, dark fruits (like fresh plum) and breadiness. High carbonation. Good beer, but too alcoholic. Alcohol overwhelms other flavors, it should be present in such beer, but not so intense. Anyway it is a very good beer.

33cl bottle poured in a Struise glass. Pours a dark reddish amber colour with quite a long lasting white head. Taste is typical Leffe with the same resin note that is present in both the Brune and Noel. Overall quite nice and the more you have the better it gets. I would say more dark spices and maybe a portlike quality as the temperature increases. I would serve this slightly warmer than the recommendation of the brewery.

ElManana (248) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2014
Sweet and sour taste, with a note of tropical fruits and spices, especially banana. Finishes off rather flat. Pretty well balanced, with no strong alcohol tang, though this is a fairly strong ale. A pleasant beer. The better Leffe actually.
