COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brown ale has a marked ruby brown colour with a generous and lasting head. It has a distinctive aroma reflecting the wide range of ingredients used in its production. The fruitiness resulting from its fermentation blends harmoniously with a dominant liquorice and caramel flavour. The body is decidedly malty. The bitterness is the result of a complex alchemy between the fine hops and special malts used. These give St Feuillien Brune a typical dark chocolate appearance.

Bottle. Pours dark reddish brown with large frothy light brown lasting head. Aroma is malt, caramel, dry wood, dust, cardboard box, raisin and yeast. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with acidic notes. Body is creamy with good carbonation. Finish is long with notes of caramel, citrus, plum, raisin, strawberry and hints of sweet licorice syrup. Very pleasant and balanced beer.

KW92 (280) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 13, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa miedziana, opalizujące. Piana drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa - krótka.
AROMAT: Mało intensywny. Czerwone owoce, odrobina ziół. Poza tym słodowość i trochę "belgii".
SMAK: Tutaj również słodkie owoce, ale pojawia się też karmel. Goryczka alkoholowo-ziołowa - średnia.
OGÓLNIE: Hmm...z jednej strony nie można się do niczego przyczepić, ale mimo wszystko nie jest to piwo które zasługuje na poświęcenie mu szczególnej uwagi.

SkillsFactory (106) - ITALY - MAY 13, 2015
Marrone opalescente con riflessi giallastri, schiuma fine color ocra di buona persistenza. Aroma di frutta secca, prevalentemente uva passa e nocciole. Al palato si ripresenta l'uva passa, anche un po' di banana matura, caramello, nota alcolica sul finale. Insieme ad un retrogusto erbaceo. Corpo pieno, molto carbonata. Retrolfatto speziato (pepe). Si discosta un po' dall'idea classica di Dubbel, ma è molto buona.

Deep amber hue. Rocky tan head. Aroma is orange blossom, honey and bread. Full bodied, well structured. Starts sweet, then grows slightly bitter. Long finish. Very nice.

Unclear ruby brown beer with a white head. Tastes like caramel, sweet dried fruity, yeasty, herbs and some alcohol. Nice bitter sweet aftertaste.

Kita (1372) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Murky ruby brown color with medium creamy tan-like head, tiny yeast particles and sparkling appearance. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, dried fruits and grassy hops. Taste starts with rich and sweet caramel malt, slightly roasted, following is mild fruity, mouthfeel is warming alcoholic, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium to full body, thick texture and lively natural carbonation in palate. Malty, alcoholic, malty and again malty. Much too one-dimensional to deserve higher rating...

macio_men (97) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 1, 2015
Bardzo ciekawy aromat, ciężki do zdefiniowania. Ciemna, nieprzejrzysta barwa; gęsta, wysoka piana utrzymuje się do końca. W smaku poprawne, alkohol wyczuwalny, ale w przyjemny sposób. Mocne nasycenie. Ogólnie rzecz biorąc- udane piwo :)

Cybion (92) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours dark, reddish, cloudy brown with a hefty amount of lively tan head, which does sink fairly quickly to around a finger, leaving a small amount of lacing. Aroma is a little subdued overall though i’m getting some foresty, floral notes with wood and dark fruits lingering behind, but all fairly low intensity as I mentioned. Small hint of smoke perhaps. Taste is primarily sweet and quite fruity up front; brown sugar, lemon, blackcurrent, honey, raisins. After this comes the main body of the malt; sweet and bready, like brioche or something. Not much in the way of a finish other than some lingering cereal and dark fruit. Fairly sharp on the palate with lively carbonation but body and texture wise this is smooth and silky. Good overall but lacking depth and complexity beyond the pleasing initial sweetness.

Arek (503) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle 0.33 l, Carrefour, Wrocław, Poland.
Ciemnokasztanowe piwo o puszystej, jasnobeżowej pianie oraz przyjemnym, lekko kwaskowym aromacie. W smaku słodowe, lekko palone z posmakiem kwaśnych wiśni oraz rozgrzewające gardło na finiszu.

Bottle at home. Rich malty goodness. Flavour of raisins and caramel with some herbal spiciness. Great Belgian character. Medium body. Warming and Complex. Lovely.
