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.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 5, 2004
Bottle pours translucent deep fiery amber, large off-white frothy head, lively carbonation, with so-so lacing.   Sweet aroma, minor dark pitted fruits, candi sugar, and subtle hints of earth and dust.   Slightly spicy up front, herbs, earth, and a bit of dust.   This is followed by a very light hint of dark pitted fruit, and even some apple or pear.   Full body, spritzy mouthfeel.   Finishes slightly sweet, malty, light figs, then a bit dusty.   A reasonable Dubbel.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUL 9, 2004
a ludicrous brune to say the least (in a very good way) I´ve sampled a couple of dubbels tonight and this is by far the bery best! Aroma is wonderful, hints of fruits, berries, some roast. Explosive taste, caramels, oak, earth, outhouse, liquorice, hops, yeast. Simply wonderul and one explosive dubbel!
Earlier Rating: 7/9/2004 Total Score: 3.6
a big big head on this one. Aroma is something like a hoppy micro from the USA. Some earthy tones, vineagar, spices, , nutty, outhouse and a bit roasty and candy-ish. First sip is a bit of a let down, but pleasantly hoppy with a dry bitter finish. Maybe a bit to dry. This is indeed a pleasant brew, with a very interesting aroma, but the taste is a bit of a let down like I said ....

fiulijn (15378) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2004
Dark amber color; huge rocky head! Nice malty aroma, with some roasted touch, yeast. Same for the taste: some malt and roasted malt, caramel; quite dry, probably not really mature.
Earlier Rating: 6/8/2002 Total Score: 3.8
Deep amber colour, generous thick head, beautiful lace. Very nice aroma, fresh, hoppy, some malt, sweetness. Good body, quite strong caramel, malt; some residual sweetness attenuated by a very light astringency. More ordinary palate. Good strong ale, with some aging potential.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Brown color poured almost flat. Big dried fruit taste of figs, nuts and dates. Maybe this turned but it’s not that great.

beermaniac (86) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2004
Aroma: Nice caramel maltiness, oaky aroma with some peppery/spicy yeasty notes. Vanilla notes which are awesome also present with some sherryish overtones. This has a lovely, woody aroma. Very complex aroma, gets almost perfumey as it warms. Nice!! Appearance: Pours with a big head that dissapates but still leaves a thin film on the beer. Clarity is good, with a nice dark ruby tinge. Flavor: Caramelly, oaky flavor. Raisiny maltiness with a subtle vanilla flavor that is very pleasing. The flavor also gains perfumey notes as it warms, very nice flavor, very complex like the aroma. Mouthfeel: Some alcohol warmth, creamy mouthfeel. Overall: Excellent beer, one of the best I've had in a while. Very complex, wish I had a few more bottles of this stuff!! Very easy drinking with a good oaked/vanilla character in the nose and flavor that remains throughout and makes it a pleasure to drink.
