Red-brown, weak head. Smell and taste: candies, caramel, peaches, honey, cinnamon, raisins. Nicely balanced, but not very exciting, just as Leffe Blonde and Bruine. Winter beer, goes well eith brown cake.

Format: traditional 330mL bottle, stylish label. I like it as a package; stylish.

Appearance: poured into a wide-mouth trappist glass. A clear, mid red-brown in colour with a finger of creamy beige head that leaves extremely thick lacing down the glass. Looks pretty darn good.

Aroma: some fruits here with a touch of sherry, bread malts and plenty of Belgian yeasts.

Taste: definite heavy fruits here with strong Belgian yeasts and an almost cake-like biscuit and bread malt character. A touch of warming alcohol. Very, very drinkable.

Aftertaste: the flavours linger through. A lovely beer.

Mouth feel: medium in body with a moderate to medium carbonation. Quite smooth in feel.

Overall: one of my favourite Belgian strong dark ales. I do love myself a tasty Leffe. I'll pay the AU$100 a case - every now and then.

A dark strong ale much more similar in texture to its dark ale counterpart than you would expect. Subtle bitterness to start that mellows quick and transitions into a sweet toasted malty finish as it leaves your mouth.

This is the BEST of the Leffe range. Good flavour and aftertaste.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18E). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 49 02:38. AROMA: sweet malty notes with some background notes of dried grapes. mild spicy alcohol notes. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: amber color and translucent. average ivory and moussy head with low retention. low lacing. TASTE: sweet malty background with low esters and phenols. some spicy alcohol character. medium-low bitterness. finishes medium-dry. PALATE: medium-low body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a not so complex belgian strong ale. average at most.
