Die Pelfort Brune Dose ist ja mal richtig schön gestaltet: silbern mit dem Pelikan drauf, nice! Auch die Optik im Glas ist schön, farblich ist es kräftig rot-braun und die Schaumkrone hält gut. Geschmacklich ist es speziell: fruchtig, malzig mit einem leichten, aber geschmacksprägenden Alkoholgeschmack, dazu kommt noch ein schwaches süß-röstmalziges Aroma. Der Geschmack ist ziemlich eigen, da es weder wie ein Starkbier noch wie ein normales Dunkles schmeckt, aber mir gefällt er sehr gut. Im Abgang fruchtig, alkoholisch, etwas milder als vorher. im Nachgeschmack dann malzig und mild würzig.! Test vom 26.9.2009, Gebinde: Dose Noten: 13,13,12,12,14,13 - 12,75

From my notes 6/15/07 pours a two-finger light tan head that fades slowly, leaving some lace. Deep mahogany color. Malty nose. Light carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Flavor is malty and nutty, clean finish. Nice to have a decent French beer for a change. Best by Jan 26, 2008. €4.00 ($5.48) 330ml green bottle at Hotel Mercure Lyon, France.

Brown colour, big bubbly head of pale yellow colour. No particular aroma, but rich, full taste with malty and coffee notes. Some sweetness, but not too much. Awesome.

Originally rated July 2005. This French dark lager pours a brown-red colour with a nice creamy head. The lacing is good and the retention is long. Very pleasant scent of roasted malt and nuts with a slight metallic background. The taste starts nutty and finishes sweet, going into the aftertaste. There is also mild bitterness in the finish. Reminds me of some Irish reds and the mouthfeel is smooth. I am rarely amazed by beers from France, but I would drink this one anyday. Thanks to Matt for sharing this one brought back from France itself.
