One of the two most famous Belgian ales from the Leffe abbey brewery, Leffe Brune is a flavoury dark beer, full-bodied, medium sweet, with moderate carbonation. It has a mouthfeel that, based on my tasting of 11/11/09 (one of many tasting of this wonderful beer), I thought was rather smoky.

The flavour is of chocolate roasted malt and that weird smokyness is at the very start. In the aftertaste, this aspect develops, alongside lots more chocolate and dark malts. No doubt Leffe Brune's popularity has waxed due to the strong marketing of InBev, but at least it has substance to it and is very tasty.

The palate detects a smoked malt, syrupy actually, and there is chocolate malt on the tongue. The appearance is very appealing, with a thick head - fairly good retainment - and through it emerges a roast chocolate malt aroma. Just one piece of advice. Don't drink this out of the bottle, because you really won't get the full benefit of everything it has to offer.
