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.

A searing pint with mellow, sweet caramel spirit, unfazed by its evil-jewel ruby appearence and generally awash in a fizzling head lasting far longer than my ability to pause between sips.

thedm (5029) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 26, 2006
This bottled brew poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized long lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent brown colored softly carbonated body and a fair lacing. The aroma was very mildly malty. The mouth feel was smooth and mildly vinous. The flavor was very tasty with a nice smooth brown ale base.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUN 25, 2006
750mL bottle, no date. Pours a hazy copper brown with a large beige head. Musty aroma along with some yeast, graham crackers, raisins, a little bit of toffee and nuts. Flavors are much the same, though some bitterness is present halfway through til the end. Has a stout/porter chalky finish to it. As this warms up, yeasty sourness is more apparentAlcohol is noticeable, though not too warm. Medium bodied. Not too bad.

TheEpeeist (3473) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2006
11.2 oz bottle. Clear burgundy with a dirty tan bubbly head; fades. Plum sauce, concord grapes and treacle. Sweet raisin goes slightly bitter and sour to hold off cloying. Body a little thin with light carb. Simple, good.

KnutAlbert (6349) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 21, 2006
Fine dark brown clour, smalls like an old ale. Rich flavour, sweet & sour in the way the Belgians do so well. A very respectable abbey ale!

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2006
Dark brown coloured, small off white head. Sweet malty aroma, some caramel like. Full creamy body. Finish is light bitter, some sweet and again a little caramel. Pretty good one.

750ml bottle - Dated 2004

I must have had this beer in my cellar for 2 years… and just finally got around to drinking it.
Pours a rusty brown body and a tall rocky slightly off white head. The aroma and flavor offer especially earthy suggestions of toffee, honey-nut wheat bread, and a dusty sort of yeasty-ness. There was some mildly fruity mention of dates and plums, accompanied by a nutty finish. The palate had a pleasant effervescence, spritzy, with a mildly sweet biscuity finish. A rather good brew, but nothing too exciting overall.

Amber with nice tan head. The aroma is a peatey malt and tea. the flavors are sweet and malty. There are roasted and toasty malts. Yeast is presant and there is a bit of warmth on the finish.

the nose to this beer is immediately bourbon and coffee liqueor, the taste is sweet, fruity, with a really nice finish of caramel. nothing is overly great in comparison to neighborhood beers but it is a solid and very drinkable beer.
