Head holds up throughout the drinking session and pours a deep, dark amber color; it was like a Mahogany Rush (like the Montreal rock band!). Slight bitterness (probably more than there should be though) with malt overtones and aromas. Very good beer to drink as you watch football in December.

Had it from a bottle in Grenoble. Leffe Brune shows the characteristics yeast notes from the brewery. This supermarket ale isn't a great example of a Belgian dark ale as it shows off notes

On draft in Jerusalem. Nice dark appearance with tan head that disipates in time. Nice sweet nutty aroma. Taste is also very smooth sweet nutty pleasant.

L: drops bright dark brown filled with streams of rapidly rising bubbles that support a lacy 2.5" tan cap with good retention

S: It smells of dark dried fruit, dark dense bread, and very faint banana.

T: mildly sweet and tastes like a fresh slice of dark banana bread with dark dried fruit, raisins, a hint of nuts, and some dark toast and a very faint hint of chocolate, dark caramel and spice

F: Creamy, mousse-like texture with a medium to medium light body and above average carbonation

O: This is a flavorful and easy to drink but is somewhat tame.

Smells rather like a weizen than a belgian. Tastes like roasted malts, luckily no trace of the sickening yeast, with an aftertaste of caramel/toffee. Altogether not bad though it is rather boring. Not outstanding, I must say.

12oz foil top with a date

Small ring of bubbles, clear chocolate color. Smells fantastic - cocoa powder, medicinal dank hops and dark malt. Thin with some astringency, lots of Belgian yeast flavors with burnt chocolate notes

Look: looks like gravy.

Smell: burnt, like concentrated marmite. Really disgusting. It's really. Disgusting. Like burnt dirt.

Taste: what I imagine oven scraping is like. 50 year old hardened marmite.

Feel: just like water, just rubbish

Overall : I will never drink it again. I'm annoyed by it's existence
