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.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark orange-brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel, toasted bread), lightly yeasty (mold, cobwebs), with notes of coriander and bubble gum. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A little watery and not very interesting, but good. Spiced with coriander, seemingly.

Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark orange-brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel), moderately yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of coriander, toffee, orange peel. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. I like the aroma and appearance, but it's a bit thin, watery, and sour for my tastes.

Sigmund (4936) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2006 330 ml bottle. Chestnut colour, large head. Vinous aroma, claret, caramel, spices. Malty flavour where the sweetness is well balanced with decent hops. Elements of caramel, liquorice, dark chocolates and some spices. Nice warming mouthfeel. Definitely a beer I’ll buy again when I can find it.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2004
Great looker here. Deep copper colour and fine creamy head. The nose is delightfully caramel and subdued malt. Flavour is very well balanced. My trip to Europe is surely improving the avarage scores of my beers overall.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Deep amber. Nose quite malty, some candy sugars, some raisin. Malty and sugary, some chocolate. Finishes with an overly strong alcohol burn, and somewhat sharply harsh as well.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2004
Brown body, good sized khaki head. Sweet malt and lots of dark fruits (fig, prunes) and very mild notes of chocolate in both the aroma and flavour. Tiniest hint of an underlying sour bitterness. Pleasant smooth mouthfeel but not too heavy. Very nice beer. Shared at Smokeless.
