2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
[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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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)

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
