YogiBeera (2475) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2003
on tap at Tango du Chat, Paris: Malt and cherry nose but weak. Murky brown with hints of red. Flat carbonations, brussels laces. Fruity, from the smell I would say, cherry. Medium finish. Nice and refreshing, ok. Nice place with served olives and peanuts.

brewboy (152) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2003
A mind altering dark syrupy concoction. A small throwback bottle that hits like Iron Mike. Not for the faint hearted.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2003
A fresh dark beer! Caramel notes in the flavor. Very malty and a nice thick head.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - FEB 4, 2003
Dark brown colour with almost no head. The flavour is very sweet with traces of chocolate and caramel. Not bad, anyway, but Belgian beers are definitely really better than this one.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2011 Feb 2002 Dating back to 1937 (when it was called Pelican) this is a dark, malty sweet beer - a style quite popular with the French, especially in the North. It is an easy drinking and quite pleasant beer without any distinquishing features. [2.6]
Jan 2003 Le Sevigne bar, Corignan. Bottle. A murky brown beer. A maltier Newkie Brown - like sucking a liquid black bread through cotton wool. Interesting sardine and prune aroma. [2.9]
Feb 2011 Can, Marseille. Pleasant malty sweet brown beer. Enjoyable. [3.0]

BeyaMC (47) - Tirschenreuth, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2002
Sorry for the others: The only beer worth drinking in France. Dark, caramel-taste, malty and full of character.

joet (2172) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - NOV 10, 2002
Weak thin with mild carmel and and a touch of pan flavors, some mineral, wee bits of yeast and a light measure of sour. Did I say it was light and mild?

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2002
Had slightly malty nose, but pretty weak. Metallic tinge from the can. Nice copper brown/red color with foamy off-white, lacing head. Medium heavy carb and body, a bit oily. Pretty nice malty taste but not overly sweet. Good hops contribution. Tinge of salt/sour. Weak bitter finish and bitter/nutty after. Tasted a little metallic.

pilsnerrogge (2497) - Finspång, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2002
Dark amber, minimal head. Sweet taste, some alcohol. One-dimensional.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2002
Dark amber, brownish colour, no head (French pubs have low hygiene standards, you would not be surprised ;o). Simple aroma, some malt. Caramalt, caramel, some sweetness, drinkable but very simple. Ordinary palate.
