COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wilfort is a well-rounded brown ale brewed in the traditional way. To fully appreciate the character of its roasted malts and the wealth of flavours developed slowly over time in our cellars, we recommend a drinking temperature of around 8°.

JorisPPattyn (7929) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 26, 2008
Medium cream-brown head on reddish, Coca-Cola coloured beer. Vanilla-sweetish nose, nutty, slighlty oxydized malts. Sweet-molasses & dark candi sugar. Sweet (if not too), but obviously oxydized sample, although well before BBD. Nutty, "biscuit" flavours. Milk chocolate, almonds & liquorice warming up. Soft, creamy, texture; despite the 6.3 % I seem to get some warming. Sweet, and obviously prematurely aged sample. Then again, Kronenbourg...

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2007
Bottle: Very dark brown with lots of bead in the glass. On oddly nice dark, possibly caramelised apple aroma is totally out of sync with the rest of the tones this beer produces. In the mouth dark grainy flavours dominate with a subtle black pepper finish. There’s also a warming alcohol hit very late. Nicely balanced.

Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2007
Darker brown coloured with some light carbonation and a medium off white head. Malty, little roasted aroma, sweeter touches. Full palate. Finish little malty roasted, smouth and little sweet. not excellent but good.

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2007
[Sampled in France, 2004.] Notes of nuts and brown ale ingredients, but it’s a little watery and in the end it seems a bit boring.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - APR 8, 2007
Bottled. Reddish brown coloured. Aroma of roasted malts and ripe fruits. Sweetish malty and fruity flavour with notes of caramel. Medium bodied.

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2006
Bottled. Clear, reddish-brown, with a small beige, almost tan, head. Roasted malt, caramel, some hops and hints of dried fruits in the aroma. The flavor is mostly roasted malt and caramel, and the finish has hops, sweetness and a vague hints of coffee. Medium body. A pleasant, but a bit boring beer, reminding me of the strong norwegian christmas beers. (060709)

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Wilfort is a bearable dark lager, but the sweetness up front never really develops, as there is a noticable gap where the hops are supposed to be found. The picture is accurate for the pour, but the head diminishes rather quickly.

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2005
Bottled. A dark brown nut coloured beer with a good coffee coloured head. The aroma is sweet with chocolate, chocolate powder and some nuts. The taste is more of the same with some toffee and caramel thrown in for good measure. Good alcohol notes also. A very nice beer from this megabrewery.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2005
33 cl bottle. Deep brown-amber colour, thin tan head. Nice caramel malt aroma, brown sugar, toast, toffee. Flavour is semi-sweet, caramel malt, toffee, toast, a bit marshmallowy and nutty. Tastes decocted. Nice brew.

imdownthepub (10291) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2005
Bottled, 500 ml, pasteurised. Orange brown in colour with short lived head. This is a sweet fruity beer with a fizzy background. Short lived flavours matching the head, burnt undernotes. Pretty boring after a while.
