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.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2005
Pours hazy brown with small tan head. Aroma of malty brown sugar, some nuts and toffee, some port, caramel, and dark fruit. Tastes malty, brown sugary and figgy, with a semi-dry finish. There is a definite molasses note, and some funky notes as it warms.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2005 Had during a beer tasting party. Poured light brown and had a hint of peach in the aroma. Taste didn’t live up to interesting smell but still decent.

MrBrewski (42) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2005
750 Ml bottle lot # 135376. Poured a light brown with a medium light brown frothy head. Molasses/caramel, bread a touch of orange and some alcohol came through in the aroma. Medium bodied, I picked up a caramel/toffee sweetness, some molasses that European yeast some spices and a light hop that was a bit light and left too much sweetness on the palet. Overall this was a very satisfying brew, a bit sweet especially for this hop head.

thebeertourist (4757) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2005
Strong liquorice aroma. Red-brown colour with beige head. Taste is sweet and fruity throughout. Well carbonated, light to medium body. Good, but not the most complex brew around.

ABUSEDGOAT (2323) - California, USA - OCT 12, 2005
Brown body with a huge head. Yeast, candy sugar, toffee, and banana come through in aroma and flavor. Didn’t seem as powerful or interesting as most Belgian beers I’ve had.

Ungstrup (29082) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2005
A hazy amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroam is sweet with strong notes of yeast, while the flavor is dusty (probably the hops), yeasty, combined with notes of berries.

A dark red beer with a good head. It is very fruity in as well the aroma as the flavor - but it has a well rounded flavor.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 7, 2005
From a 750 ml bottle. huge head that will not go away. The body is dark brown and ruby with copious carbonation. The head is light tan. The aroma has some sweet pears and some earthy mushrooms. There is also a little moss and some leather. Everything is fresh smelling. The taste is rather dry pears and Macintosh apples with some light prunes. There is also carmel here. A very well doen dubbel.
