One of the rarer Leffe beers, this strong Belgian dark ale come from a distinctive purple bottle in the familiar Leffe style. It pours deep dark golden - very appealing appearance with a foamy head, crown lacing and overall good head retainment.

It is a sweet beer, full bodied with not too much carbonation. The texture is rich caramel malt, treacle and a well-balanced thick lemony malt as well. For a strong beer, it's not too hard going down - the balance is just so good, with lots of rich malt.

This review is based on a tasting in Italy in the small Lake Como village of Varenna in a quaint bar called Nilus Bar. I haven't had the pleasure of trying it very often, despite the fact that I see it in speciality beer stockists every now and then. The flavour is rich chocolate malt with thick treacle, becoming rich toffee in the finish with lasting treacle.

A rich syrupy caramel aroma is succeeded by a sweet malt palate, along with lots of chocolate and caramel. This is a great dark beer that is arguably one of the best in the Leffe range - full of fantastic caramel flavour and aroma.
