Bottle. Nice brown pour with a persistent white head. Aromas of yeast, plums and candy sugar. Good fruity sweet taste with some strong yeast and alcohol notes. Good mouthfeel, not too watery and correct carbonation. jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2009
Bottle from LCBO. Pours deep cloudy brown. Aroma is sweet, like brown sugar, spicy esters. Taste is similarly sweet, not much hop here, and cabonation is fine. Enjoyable! hawthorne00 (3955) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2009
Dark brown. Small but lingering beige head. Aroma of spiced red berries and brown sugar. Fruity sweetness is cut somewhat by some discernible hops. Alcohol is hidden. The finish becomes more interesting as it warms - it’s pruney and a little bitter. Balanced but rather dull. Blom (843) - Sorø, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2009
On tap. Brown with a dense low head. Sweet aroma of fruits, spice and caramel. The flavour is sweet, dominated by the malts, but the yeast is also clearly present. Medium-bodied and creamy. A classic. Mellonius (73) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - DEC 18, 2009
Great color, dark-reddish brown. Thin lacing, but very adherent. Excellent aromas of coffee, toasted malt, fruits and hops. Well balanced bitter finish, long and persistent. A truly special beer.

Draft. Ginger Man, NYC. Dark brown body with a frothy, off-white head, slowly diminishing. Moderate aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, dark fruit and mold. The flavor is light to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and lively carbonation. A bit unclean, but a pleasant enough beer with its sweet fruit to begin and nice bitter bite in the finish. DeanF (2465) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 12, 2009
Poured into a chalice, nice brown-amber colour and a big head, though it’s not too thick. Aromas are fruits and hops. Taste seems slightly tinny, a bit of grain, sweet finish. Just okay, not my favourite Leffe. abemorsten (3616) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2009
Pours clear dark golden with a rocky off white head that lasts. Good lacing. Aroma is sweet molasses, a bit metallic, bubble gum, clove, flowers. Tastes sweet burnt malt, lightly bitter, alcohol, cloves. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, lightly syrupy texture. (@ Lothes, Haugesund 7.11.2009) Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2009
Dark brown, bur clear color with a beige, quickly dissipating head (although with some residing bubblerocks). Grassy, earthy aroma. Flavour of licorice, coffee, earth. Quite bitter but also a little sweet. dagimp (1008) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2009
On tap at the Lucky Dog Saloon in Lafayette Hill, PA. Pours with little head which is gone in short time. Scent is of plums and other sweetness. Taste is of light brown sugar, plums, grape, caramel and light malt. Very smooth and easy drinking beer. I had mine with a roast pork sandwich and it went very well. I could see drinking this with a wide variety of foods. Flavors were subtle yet present and deep. I very much liked this beer and would happily drink again anytime.
