On tap at the Caribou Cafe in Philadelphia. Served at cellar temperature in a Leffe goblet. Dark mahogany color with a big foam. Pleasant sudsy mouthfeel. Medium body but a touch of stickiness.

Malty with an edge of the classic dark flavors: toffee, raisin, black roast coffee. A subtle burr of hops provides another dimension. Sweet and fruity, though, is the main taste, with the Belgian yeasty flavors adding some complexity.

Spicy nose and tangy aftertaste. This seems to be a staple of French bistro kind of places. I'll have to taste this again. This is better than I remember from the bottled version.
