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.

17/XI/13 - 33cl bottle @ Horeca Expo (Gent) - BB: 22/IX/15 (2013-1079)

Clear ruby red to rust brown beer, creamy beige head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: liquorish and aniseed, bit of caramel, toast, grains, liquorice. MF: lots of carbon, medium to light body. Taste: lots of aniseed, liquorice, bitter touch, some caramel, bit sourish. Aftertaste: lots of aniseed again, liquorish, sweet caramel, little bitter, hint of mocha. Way over spiced if you ask me.

KeefOz (835) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2013
BB 12/05/2015. Poured an opaque dark brown colour with a two-finger light tab frothy head than retained very well but produced poor lacing. Aroma subtly of sweet malt and a hint of spices. Taste of sweet brown sugar and caramel but lacking a hops bitterness presence. Taste subtly rich with a hint of alcohol on the back palate. Medium body. Smooth, creamy with subtle spices and a quite sweet finish. Quite good. For me better than the blond.

Maris (952) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - NOV 2, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 15 October 2013. Pours a cloudy amber with a biggish head which dissipates. The aroma features caramel, dark fruit and figs, Flavour wise, you get more caramel, dark fruit, brown sugar and a touch of spice. This is a bit of a sweet one, but it has enough bitterness to balance it out. Has a fullish body and is slightly over carbed. This is a nice brune, let down only by the over carbonation.
