Courtesy of BelgBeerGeek. Thx! 25 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBSG II. BBF 04/2013. Cute little bottle. Reddish amber with little head. Smells of sweet malts, oddly reminds me a bit of a lager, iron, spices & brown sugar. Taste is sweet malts, liquorish, iron, sweet bread, caramel, brown sugar, light bitterness in the back. Thin carb. light, bit simplistic but certainly better than anticipated.

Can from a Kiwi Mart, Phnom Penh. Pours brown with hardly any head. Nose is caramel and yeast, flavour is a bit toasty with malt, a bit of dark fruit. Half way between a bock and a Belgian brown, but lighter than both. Good stuff, actually.

Une belle cannette de 50cl achetée à Paris. Bière brune acajou qui ne fit pas de mousse. Un nez aqueux de chocolat et de malt brun. La bouche est mince, elle n’a pas de texture pour une bière à 6,5%. Elle a que peu de goût, avec force on termine par trouver ce qui semble être du chocolat.

Zoeter dan zoet met licht port aroma. Smaak gaat daarin door inclusief chocolade en veel suiker. Geen bitter, nasmaak wat licht muf. Kraag is meteen weg, wellicht door verkeerd glas.

Nydelig lukt av humle og karamell. Rødbrun farge, mye skum. god fyldig smak lignende vørterøl. Fin ettersmak.

0,33l can somewhere in Poitiers. Pours clear chestnut with a low head. Aroma is malts. Flavor is slightly roasted malts with some nuts. Decent.

Very average brune. Very sweet and toasty malts with quite a bit of heat from the booze. Won’t have again

Love a good brown ale, and Pelforth Brune was a pleasant surprise. Hops are wonderfully non-existent, leaving tons of room for malty goodness. Aroma is what one would expect for a brown ale - hints of caramel, nuts, raisin, etc. Dark brown, with minimal head. Flavor is sweet and malty, richer than a Newcastle, but not like the doppelmalz-style beers that really head into rum and raisin territory. Rich without being too rich. Medium body, smooth, not too carbonated. A great choice.
