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.

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..

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Pretty dark brown beer with a nice, brownish head. Yeasty nose, flavours of dried fruits, caramel and brown sugar. Very roasted malts. Very refined perfumyness - I reckon there might be some coriander thrown in here. An archetypical and excellent Dubbel. 140398

Bottle from Open All Hours, Keswick. Good Dubbel, but (atypically) not as good as their ’blond’. Dark ruby brown. Good head. Malty, dried fruit aroma. Good rounded malty taste. Finish slightly roasty, hop not dominant.
