look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the bottle into a tulip nonic pint glass.

Cherry copper red, fairly clear with minimal head creation. Tan fleeting with a limited collar.

Very closed nose. Caramel and a bit of sucrose making for a taffy candy store flavor. Doesn't seem very Belgian even a touch of black licorice is in there.

Palate is enjoyable and solid. Not quite to my style but gets into milk chocolate instead of fruit dark esters. Clean solid mouthfeel, maybe a touch of cream also.

Doesn't quite seem like Belgian dark, but has a solid flavor profile.

Had it on tap @Open Baladin Turin. Almost red in the glass, smells great, similar to belgian strong ales. Lots of barley, caramel, tastes like dried fruits, with spicy hints. One of my favourite beers from their portofolio, along with Super.

PS: Near Christmas, they reverse the beer's name and they sell it as Noel. So Leon and Noel are the same beers.
