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.

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

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33cl. A black but clear ale with medium carbonation. Aroma is very sweet and caramel like, and toasty. Nice bitterness and grassy hop flavour. Good beer, a bit difficult to digest, near to a Pelforth brune.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
