UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 This is a very nice change up if you are tired of the standard Garde/Belgian beers in Northern France. It is not lemon/salty in the least, and the mouthfeel is a bit syrupy and lightly carbonated. It actually resembles, say, Newcastle or even an altbier from Germany more than a French style. The sweetness is a bit too high but thereís a redeeming woodiness or maybe honey to the malts. A good brew this one is, but it serves mostly as a counter to all those beers around it that are its opposites.

Off white head on a dark brown body. Very well balanced, and keeps itself very well:I bought it in a 75 cl bottle and it was still good after a couple of days in the fridge. I liked the taste, and itís one of the best dunkle Ibíve ever had. Pelforth is the best-knwn brown beer in France, and itís almost synonymous with a good brown beer there.

Poured a deep brown with a decent head. Well balanced. Starts a bit too sweet, but then has a slightly bitter finish. One of my favorite French beers

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Out of a bottle in Paris. Pours brown with a ruby hue, small head. Aroma is malty with some hints of dark fruit. Quite sweet with lots of malt chocolaty hints and some sweet dark fruit. A bit too sweet but a prety good beer.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2005
(Bottle 65 cl) Clear, pretty mahogany coloured beer with a light brownish head. According to the back label itís brewed according to a tradition of strong ales, but it isnít really very aleish - hasnít got the fruity esters. Dark and malty with some smoked notes and a pronounced sweetness. A bit alcoholic. 070505

albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 31, 2005
Bottle. Sampled at a brasserie somewhere in Paris one fine evening with my ladyfriend. Brown crimson color with offwhite head and very bubbly. Malty aroma with hints of fruity sweetness, almost too much. Goes down with a bite, but refreshing.

NosirIwont (2184) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2005
Bottle. Nice red/brown colour with a brownish/off-white head. Sweetish, malty aroma. Flavour is sweet with a distinct alcohol presence, which makes it taste towards some kind of liquor/booze - Iím thinking Baileyís/whiskey (even though itís only 6.5%). Interesting! Gets a more caramel/malty character as it warms.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2005
25 cl bottle. Pours brown with a small head. Taste is sweet, not complex with usual notes of caramel and fudge. A bit too sweet but all in all not bad.

tomciccateri (1033) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 4, 2005
33cl green bottle three months from the date stamp. Nearly opaque dark brown color with a light head. The light-bodied beer has a full mouthfeel and rich, dark malt falvor. There is a slightly alcoholic character in the finish but overall the mellow flavors blend well into a complex but even dry/sweet flavor balance.

ABUSEDGOAT (2419) - California, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Bottle somewhere in France. This was gross. The aroma and flavor was revolting. It smelled and tasted rotton. It still looked nice in the glass and poured a minimal head. I donít know how I finished it, but I felt like a champ for being able to. Looking at the other ratings Iím guessing my bottle was either bad or these people have lost their minds.
