4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 oz bottle. Pours filtered dark brown to amber with a medium beige head with good retention; leaves some bitchin-looking cobwebby lacework. Aroma consists of roasted malts, clove, dark overripe fruits--yeasty. Taste is sweet and savory with a slight tartness in the finish. With those clovey phenols, this tastes more like a dunkelweizen than any abbey dubbel I’ve ever had. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body. Really nice.
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 (1271) - 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! craftyrocker (40) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2017
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.

Brown colored, with sweet and fruited aroma, toasted, alcoholic, very nice! nybol (2200) - DENMARK - JUL 12, 2017
En af de største klassikere. En fyldig sødme, let brændt og en rigtig god smag af karamel eunck (210) - 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. Chopper925 (561) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2017
Bottle. Clear dark brown color, fine beige head. Caramel, malty aroma, light fruits and spices. Not quite dry, but less than medium sweet, low bitterness. Toffee and caramel, sweet malty aftertaste. Silky smooth mouthfeel and a fresh carbonation, which balances the mighty malt and spice character very good. Definitely one of my favourite belgian beers.
