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.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 Sampled at Eric & Wendy’s "Go to Hell, Isabel" Party, 2003! ... This beer rocks!... Very murky, mahogany ale. Large, dark bits of vitamin-laden yeast floating around and then settling at the bottom of the glass. The aroma is of dark fruits, bread dough, light alcohol and brown sugar. A touch floral as well. Very tasty and well-balanced! Coffee, toffee and chocolate notes. Candied dates and dark raisins. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, astringent finish. World Class Brew!

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 29, 2003
Clear brown apperance. More watery than any other belgian I have had. Some peppery spice. Not bad.

omhper (18966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2003
Bottled. Nut brown, hazy. Aroma of banana and butterscotch. Malty , soft and rounded. Toffee finish with some bitterness. Wonderfully balanced.
Earlier Rating: 8/5/2003 Total Score: 3.5
Bottled. Dark mahogany. Aroma of coffee and herbal spices. Sweet,soft and medium bodied. Notes of anise and yeast. Mature and rather complex, I guess this has been laying around for some time before I sampled it.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2003
Served way too cold, had to let it warm up a bit to taste anything. Nice flavour- caramel, spice, citrus. Rich, yet nice, soft mouthfeel, a touch sticky.

JFGrind (1811) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2003
Overwhelming aroma and roasted flavor evident in the fisrt sip. Alcohol taste is there but not as strong as you would think for 7.5 ABV. Maybe best described as an Abbey Dubbel light.

Oakes (11842) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2003
Burgundy hue. Aroma of plums, raisins, brown sugar, pears. A little bit of astringency in those dark malts. Burnt fruit, hint of florals…not bad dubbel.

Nuffield (3637) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2003
This is really good in some ways, but I was disappointed ultimately. Driven by the caramel and rich malt flavors, the leading edge flavors reveal some fruitiness, and then spiciness, in a nicely layered complexity. There was what to my palate is a sense of saltiness produced in part by the form of carbonation and effevescent tonic water-like body. As I sat with this, I couldn't find the same layering and the flavor started to become a bit "hollow"--where was the depth and length of finish? (on tap, Lowlander, London)

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2005 75cL Bottle. Almost non-existing head. Red-brown colour. Aroma and taste is sweet, spicy, fruity (overripe apple?) and a little alcoholic. Medium to full body.

A state of the art Abbey Dubbel.Not too sweet though it has a taste of chocolate. Nice, creamy head and a lovely dark, brownish body. Ummm!!!
