12oz bottle from the beer store. Brown with ruby hues, frothy head with plenty retention and lacing. Smells of sweet caramel, a little chocolate and esters, just like you’d expect from a dark Belgian. Tastes of caramel dark fruit, and toffee, but mostly candied sugar (damn sugary). Very creamy and smooth with a slight hop bitterness on the finish. Not bad, but I’d grab other abbeys over this one.

7/VII/17 - 33cl bottle @ Marimain (Gent) - BB: n/a (2017-980) Thanks to Jeroen for buying the round.

Note: happy I was able to squeeze in another rating while being at a Belgian bar. This must be practically the only widely available Belgian beer that I hadn’t rated thusfar. I was always surprised how it was possible this Leffe was rated so highly. I’m afraid I have to admit it’s actually not half bad. As much as people will now start accusing me of partiality. :p

Clear purple brown beer, creamy beige head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving some lacing in the glass. Aroma: very malty, grains, some caramel. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet, dried fruits, some chocolate, caramel, sugary, ripe banana. Aftertaste: soft bitterness, dried fruits, caramel, lots of banana, sweet, soft roast, bit malty, sugary.

One has to be in a mood for dark beers from Belgium. I like this beer for the sweet taste and high alcohol percentage. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Geproefd als leffe dubbel, vindt ik niet lekker, chemische smaak, komt bij mij over als een dettol smaak, zelfde als graaf van heumen amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium beige head. High carbonated - quite good for this style because of high sweetness. Drinkable brew but nothing fancy.

Pours brown with medium beige head. Aroma is caramel, metal, some zinc,honey notes, fruits, some dark candies, raisin, some sugar. Taste is caramel, roast, some honey, bitter, dried fruits, light overcooked pie, clothes. Nice and classical beer!

craftyrocker (41) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2017
Appearance/Aroma/Taste/Palate/Overall: 4/6/8/5/16. 550mL-600mL on tap in a Leffe chalice at Belgian Beer Cafe, Sydney. Appearance: Dark brown but clear. Big beige head drops down to a film. Eventually a broken film and then no film after an hour. Decent lacing. Aroma: Dark caramel malt, spice. Not too strong though. Taste: Toasty caramel malt, dark chocolate, dark berries. Spicy. Sweetness balanced against the medium bitter toffee malt finish. Lingering aftertaste. Quite boozy. Palate: Smooth and full bodied. Low carbonation. Overall: Complex and well brewed. Enjoyed over an hour for the flavours to keep opening up.

En af de største klassikere. En fyldig sødme, let brændt og en rigtig god smag af karamel

eunck (211) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2017
Very dark brown beer with fine brownish head that lasts quite long. Aroma is both dark caramel malts and a heavy fruit mix. Strong body with the alcohol clearly noticable, but not overly boozy. Good bitterness, also somewhat sweet with sugarcane flavour. The beer fits very well the style description and is recommended for people who are bored with Lagers and such.

Sampled for the initial time on a visit to the continent, appropriately in the offered Leffe tulip glass. Pouring it I see an amber brown body with a decent light brown head that slowly settles to a skim. The nose is glorious, hard candy sugar, cinnamon and coriander. The taste is a bit less than the scent but nice. I get the spiciness found in the smell, toast, yellow currant sweetness. A very solid dubbel.
