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 from Beers of Europe. Deep brown colour, thick white head. Very malty beer, caramel, toffee, fruit cake, something bitter, herbal, licorice. Spicy hop, nice balance. I often find dubbels a bit lacking in malt character, not this one, good stuff.

Escura avermelhada com ótima formação de espuma densa, marrom e de longa duração. Aroma com notas de frutas vermelhas e escuras, malte torrado, especiarias, leve tabaco e potente lúpulo floral. No sabor pega mais o malte e as especiarias junto com potente teor alcoólico. Encorpada com carbonatação média, final longo com frutado e amargor presente no retrogosto.

Beautiful chunky tan foam rises on this dark brown and lightly scented abbey. The fragrance is characterized by a light caramel aroma mixed with a distinct scent of plums. In mouth expresses the very rich feeling, and again give the plums a refined touch. It tastes slightly sweet and have a good long hoppy bitterness. Definitely the best among the brewery’s products.
