Roasted malt and slight chocolate up front. Very slight hints of bananna, caramel, nutmeg, and hops appear on the surface of an underlying typical sweet belgian yeast. Medium to thin bodied, simple and EASY drinking! sseb69 (1935) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2010
Bouteille 330 ml. En fût. 6.5%. Couleur brune foncé avec mousse beige. Arôme de chocolat et céréale. En bouche elle est douce, épaisse, gouteuse et pleine. Le chocolat houblonné est présent en longueur. Excellente bière, particulièrement en fût. Notes: la version en fût est plus crémeuse et plus douce. wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle, 33 cl. Dark brown beer with medium beige head. Aroma of skunky roasted malts, light sweet and some hints of caramel and chocolate. Taste is malty, light sweet on the background, hints of caramel and chocolate and a hoppy, light bitter aftertaste. Tastes overall a bit industrial. Compared to the Leffe Blond, this beer is rather OK, but hasn’t a complicated pallet at all. Average drinkable beer, not more. KyotoLefty (10688) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 7, 2010
Draught. Chocolate, cardboard, and some spices like cinnamon and nutmeg in the nose and mouth. Ends up too sweet and a bit syrupy. Hard to drink the whole 25 cl, and this was one I used to love! Sweet and simple. evergreen0199 (3492) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2010
Bottle. A dark brown pour with a smallish beige head. Aroma of dark fruit. Tastes of dark fruit, quite sweet, caramel, slight banana. I hadn’t had this for years as it was an InBev product but it is certainly quite drinkable and easy and cheap to obtain in UK supermarkets.

At Allout bar in Port of Spain, Trinidad. Clear dark brown color with tall tan head, nice lace. Nice malty, bready aroma. Flavor is sweet malt slight alcohol flavor with dried fruit. Trace of hop bitter in the aftertaste. Metalchopz (3529) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2012 Poured a deep brown colour with red highlights. Head was nicely tanned and frothy. Good heavy lacing and highly carbonated. Nose was composed of sweet malts, Belgian yeast and slight spices. The taste was very mild for a brew of this style. Slight dark malts and light caramel. Not much bitterness and a boring mouthfeel. Very dissapointed in this one, much prefer the blonde. Sorry. Jow (4084) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2010
World Cup beer tasting at Lazy Boy Saloon Beer #13. Originally I wanted to drink all american in support of our team, but I’ve run out of drafts I haven’t tried. This pours nice brown, and tastes of fruits, nuts, bread with a medium body and nice balance. hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 14, 2010
From a bottle at the Heinz Hotel Restaurant in Vianden, Luxembourg this poured a hazy rich red to brown with a medium to large nice foarmy head with decent lacing. The nose is of yeast, raisins, and ripe fruit The body is rich and the mouthfeel smooth. The flavor is lighlly sweet, with lightly roasted malts, some light yeast, and the finish shows a hint of bitterness. A vary nice Dubbel.
