Leffe - Brune 2009

6.5 % ABV

"A traditional Belgian abbey beer with a deep brown colour and a full, sweet and fruity aroma.Ingredients: dark and torrefied malt, corn, water, hop and yeast."

THE POUR

This ale pours a deep coffee colour with a course one finger head. Head dissipates quickly to a fine white ring.

THE AROMA

The aroma is sweet with dark fruit, malt and maybe a little yeast.

THE TASTE

The taste has sweet malt and dark fruit up front. There is a nice dark chocolate, yeast and clove finish. It has a medium mouth feel with a fine carbonation.

OVERALL IMPRESSIONS

My overall impression of this ale is excellent. I have enjoyed the Leffe ale's for many years. This is on the sweet side so I wouldn't be drinking more than one at a sitting however is worth seeking out if you like the abbey ales. I would rate this a 8 out of 10.
