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°.

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 (13397) - 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.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2005
Sampled on tap at the Mannekin Pis cafe, Montpellier. Mine was labelled at Wilfort Brune and sounds like the same one all other 7 raters have sampled - should it be changed to a Dark Lager-type style? Copper Dunkel colouring, with a small murky brown style head. Fruity aroma (forest fruits), soft mouthfeel, which reveals a subtle range of flavours: fruit (bramble, jam) and some milk choc and noisette flavouring. Sweet on the finish, nice stuff.

Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2005
A pale lager that looks like a porter and smells like a bock? Simply because this was dark and the snow outside was chilling I found this to be a pretty good beer. Chocolate aromas and flavour with a reasonable mouthfeel.

Reddish black beer with a malty aroma and flavour. A reasonable sweet dark beer.

LINKBREW (101) - Santee, California, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Reddish brown, sweet malt aroma, very little hoppiness. Great body, but on the sweet side.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2002
Cola/bourbon clear colour with mid-tan, medium size,short lasting head. Faint hops, caramel and some doughy malt aromas. Medium-thin body. Poorly blended bitter-sweet-alcohol palate (is there such a thing as an alcohol palate?) Both the bitter and sweet can be tasted separately and both taste somewhat raw or as if they are trying to overpower each other. The alcohol also comes through as raw ethanol - reminds me of some experimental mixes we used to make as desparate high school seniors. As I tell my own students now - needs revision! (Rated 16/6/2002: - Gare du Nord Paris, France)

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 12, 2001
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2006 clear bordeaux-ruby colour with almost no foam; toasty caramelish nose; effervescent, some astringance but not enogh to hide the strong sweetness; a hint of bitterness and a sweetish caramelish aftertaste - dubious

Sweet and the taste of dark malts.
