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.
