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.

weepingsuds (222) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JUN 5, 2005
This has a really almost coca-cola red color. Nice head throughout the glass. HInts of cherry in the taste. Warning .75 Liter bottle can be tough.

turbothy (1120) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2005
Pours a reasonable brown colour with light brown head. Flavour was not good enough that I remember anything distinct about it, but I found the taste to be sour and skunky. A far cry from Chimay Rouge.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2005
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a nice large off-white head which stays around for some time. The aroma has Christmas fruits including raisins and plums. The taste is very full with brown bread, raisins, prunes and figs. A really good full-bodied tasty dubbel

Amber colored, somehow cloudy appearance. NIce brown medium sized head. Strong licorice and mild anis aroma, some alcohol comes up too. Sweet flavor, licorice dominates, mild alcohol in the end. Licorice lasts in aftertaste. Medium bodied, could be fuller for having ABV 7.5%.

Bottled (BB 08/2006)
Beautiful ruby brown color, nice steady tanned head, lace. Crisp light aroma of flowery hops and roasted malts. Fruity, roasted, chocolaty flavor. It ends to long licorice taste. Wineous, semi-carbonated mouthfeel. Excellent dubbel with a personal character.

Bottled 25cl (à consommer de préférence avant fin 171004)
Hazy dark red-brown, good tanned foamy head. Sweet fruity aroma of raisins, not very strong. Roasted, woody, dry and smooth mouthfeel. Thin to medium-bodied. Dry, slightly bitter finish. Interesting Belgium.

shrubber85 (7947) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Bottle. Sweet cherry and tannic aroma. Reddish brown color with ample tan head. Sweet malt flavor with hint of cherry and mild astrigent/licorice finish. Quite nice - alcohol not overpowering.

Cornfield (5544) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2005
No doubt about it, this one’s got alcohol in it. It dominates the nose, an otherwise musty, candy and fruit sweet aroma. It pours a handsome, clear ruby color with a little brown around the edges. The light brown head, once proudly tall, collapses quite quickly. The taste is a sticky-sweet malt with anise, a variety of spices, and a healthy splash of alcohol. The finish is a dry, winey alcohol finish with a hit of herbal hop bitterness at the very end. More interesting than enjoyable...

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 2, 2005
(on bottle)Yeasty. lightly smoked(?) nose. Sweet mouthfeel, heavy carbonation. The caramel in the finish saves a too sweet impression. Small lash of alcohol too.

jefcon (1419) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2005
Intriguing aromas of orange marmalade and molasses. Appearance is smooth brown with a bubbly tan head and no lacing. Flavors are caramelized and rich, with a savory slant. A yeastier taste with notes of black "liquorice." There is lots of malt on the flavor -- but the beer lacks the effervescent carbonation that would really make it jump on the palate.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2005
appearance: clear crimson color, nearly nutty brown, with a slim fizzy cola-like brown head above. Aroma: sweetness. bit o’ nuts, larger chocolate essence, passably pleasant. Taste: crisp and carbonated, nice malty flavor, little hops, tastes like an average brown ale, and offers nothing really beyond that...some spicy tinglings in the taste...very fizzy on the palate, feel like I’m having a root beer at times, here... medium bodied, lightly nutty, malty finish, but the fizz is too harsh for my taste, and spoils the flavor, make the body feel thinner than it should be...have to admit it, I’m not crazy about this one, and still have most of a 750 ml bottle to go. won’t be trying this one again, although my opinion of their other beers still stand.
