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.

Dark ruby red color with a huge frothy head. Aroma of raisins and spices. It has an apple and raisin flavor and is smooth going down.

09.14.05 750ml bottle, cork says lot no. 135376. Quite clear pour, ruby-mahogany; medium, dense, lasting tan head. Very attractive. Lightly sour aromas of pear, raisin, plum. Yeasty and dusty, plus a touch vinous. Something else rich like toffee or butterscotch. flavor compliments aromas and adds some dry, bitter floral notes. Lots of toffee and brown sugar. Tobacco and milk cocoa retronasally. Thick, almost syrupy, rich and full body is wonderul. It’s not a great flavor although inasmuch as it doesn’t all come to gether very well, but the components are delicious and the body is so pleasing it covers up some of the mess. Long and mild finish is mostly sweet but carries hints of those flowery hops which turn cleansingly astringent, woody. Nice stuff.

Smells great, like crisply snapped apples. Has a huge slow dissolving head, which tastes slightly of apples, but also of something heavier and less tasty that I can’t place.The beer has the same thickness, with hints of the metal bottle, but is still quite good. Can be downed quickly and effortlessly.

a sim rate: The smell and first impression of this beer is of chocolate and caramel. But that’s not the last you’re seeing of chocolate. Oh no! Full flavour. Thick. Smooth. Chocolate in the taste too. Tastes like a whole dessert in a glass. This is one of my old faves and definitely a top brune! Great creamy aftertaste that lingers like a great chocolate banquet!

This beer was served too cold. Brown colour with a hint of alcohol, with a little slow disappearing browny head. Malty with spices, caramel and spices. The flavour is more fruity than expected from the aroma, with a roasty finish.

75 cl Bottle. Yeast in bottom. Dark brown colour with a nice white rocky head. Aroma of yeast and some parfume. Good taste, some sweetness and complexity in the aftertaste. An absolute good brune.

I LOVE THIS STUFF. Worth trying if not just for the beautiful floral aroma that persists from uncorking to the last drop-reminds me of the Castelain Blonde Bier de Garde in that way. I could not find anything objectionable in the taste at all and it’s one of the best Belgians I’ve had. Now all I have to do is move to Belgium..
