Dark brown, translucent, heavily carbonated, big head upon pouring. Spicy and sweet on the nose, smells almost medicinal, hints of herbs and cough medicine. Mouth feel is that of heavy carbonation, feels light in the mouth but strong in flavour. Above average for the style, would go well with dark meats, not a session beer, could get tiresome after 3 or more. All in all a fantastic abbey beer.

Bouteille de 25cl. Couleur soda, la mousse se dissipe rapidement. A l’odeur, on reconnaît aisément les épices estampillées leffe. Assez peu caramélisée, une attaque légèrement sucrée qui finit sur une note d’amertume. Goût légèrement fumé pas désagréable, bon équilibre.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2013 Keg into a growler into a Leffe glass. Sweet aroma, dark appearance malty. Med body. Nice balance of sweetness and alcohol. This has been one of my favorites for a while. Wish I could find a case of it in the US.
Rerate 1/1/12 : finally got my hands on a case of this. Bottle. Poured a Clear dark brown color with a velvety frothy head. Belgium yeast aroma with slight raisin and candy sugar. Also has a slight roasted caramel malt flavor. Lite bitter and medium-lite sweetness. Creamy texture. Yum, love this stuff. Such a good Belgium brown for the money.

330 ml bottle. Rated @ 8.7.2009.rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Reddish brown colour with a slightly fruity aroma. Lacy. Sweet fruits on the flavour with a hint of alcohol. Metallic sidenotes. Average.
Not sure if I would call this a dubbel maybe more of a dark Belgian ale. Nicely drinkable. Not brilliant but not too bad either. Serving: tap and bottle garza (574) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - SEP 12, 2010
Pours brown colour with a tan head foam. Malt, yeast, roasty, spices and fruits in the aroma. Malty taste with medium sweetness and lightly bitter. Medium body, creamy, soft carbonation and some malty after taste. Good.
