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.

Geproefd als leffe dubbel, vindt ik niet lekker, chemische smaak, komt bij mij over als een dettol smaak, zelfde als graaf van heumen amber.

Medium beige head. High carbonated - quite good for this style because of high sweetness. Drinkable brew but nothing fancy. phfyysik (1274) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUL 16, 2017
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!

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.
