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.

75cl bottle split with best friends for my birthday. Pours a dark amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma of liquorice, coffee, caramel. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a strange coffee-like finish. Notes of coffee, mokka, caramel, liquorice, metallic, slight spices. Texture is oily with average carbonation

70 cl bottle at my friend Gyhallmanti’s birthday party. Pours red-brown with medium off-white head. Aroma: caramel, coffee, licorice and pear. Also some kind of aroma that reminds me of the dentist. Taste: medium to high sweetness with medium bitterness. The finish is spicy with metal notes, Palate: slightly oily with soft carbonation.

Echon (280) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2016
Dark brown and soft medium-bodied dubbel, with a wonderful aroma of caramel malt and burnt figs. Full malty flavour and belgian spice. One of my favourite dubbels.

VertBaconStrips (2279) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 4, 2016
Stellar pour. First shot - waaaay more sharp than expected. Licorice, pepper, creamy caramel, raisins, cloves. Tasty sure but damn its sharp on the sour side. Same as above, solid malts get even better when warm, salt, weak fruit as a welcome friend before the aftertaste rolls in. Basically I just drank and enjoyed.

On tap: to be fair, I compared this directly with the same brewery’s Cuvee de Noel. In this case, on this evening the latter was preferred. The brune tasted harsher and was not what I was looking for....but I will give it another chance. Nice color, certainly high quality. Now to the winner this evening....

josanguapo (878) - SPAIN - FEB 18, 2016
From elcervecero. In La Trappe chalice. Watching Sons of Anarchy 7x02-03. Very nice brune, very close to a good quad because of its dark fruits profile. A bit more watery but also more drinkable.
