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.

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2007
33cl bottle from Noel Cuveliers. Hazy red/russet colour with lasting thin beige head. Slightly yeast/sour aroma. Turns into a brown beer in the mouth, malty and then more sourness on finish. Other than that it’s a fairly normal brune

JoeinDahlem (1454) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 19, 2007
Found a four-year old bottle (Jan. 2003) and couldn’t resist opening it last night. It was gorgeous. Ruddy-dark brown color with thick, dark-beige and lasting head. Still well carbonated. Smells of brandy and roasted malt, light chocolate. Flavor was still balanced with dark-malty hops, sweetish caramel, and alcohol only in the background. Awesome flavor, spicy with some raisin and gingerbread cookie. Gently dry and still pretty lively. Should have done a side-by-side with a new one. Next time, next time. This is still an underrated brewery that makes excellent versions of the classic Belgian styles.

Palidor19 (3164) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2007
The aroma and taste has the definitive malts taste plus presence of dark fruits. Yet, its got a very mild wild yeasty taste that leave a mild tart after thought. The beer has well carbonation through out the entire session.

nick76 (4379) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2007
The aroma has dark fruits like plums and raisins along with yeast, brown sugar, and malt. The appearance is deep amber with a three finger head. The flavor is lie the aroma but quite astringent. The palate is thin with a dry finish for a Belgian. Overall it’s a nice beer but not outstanding.

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2007
Bottle: Poured a clear dark brown color ale with a huge foamy off-white head with great retention and good lacing. Aroma of candi sugar with great caramel Belgian malt is very enticing. Taste is a great mix between some candi sugar, Belgian malt and bready yeast. Body is quite full with no alcohol being discernable. Creamy texture is also quite enjoyable. Overall, this was a well done abbey dubbel with great drinkability characteristics.

11.2oz bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a small short lasting head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, and a little bit of licorice. Taste is the same with a nice med-full mouth feel that finishes sweet and slightly bitter. A very nice dubble.

Dark brown, with a thick tan head that thins to a half inch quickly. Very heavy malt aroma. Sweet and rich mouth feel. Definite raisin and chocolate flavors.
