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.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Brown. Gentle aroma with notes of plum, raisin, clove, caramel and chocolate. Soft, rich flavor combining nice flavors of clove, red licorice, plum, spice, pit fruit, brown sugar and subtle hops. A nice beer that seemed to be lacking a little.

Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2004 Approximately 5 yr old 750mL. Good looking dark copper pour. Head is small, of-white, gentle. Complex aroma has mellowed to a charming and balanced scotch ale like expressive malt fest. Old burnt cookies soaked into a butterscotch purée. Floral and brown sugar suggestions in there too. There’s still a faint trace of the hops which lent it a slight bitter finish that kept it from being overly sweet. Mild smokiness comes out through ashes and tobacco flavors. Almost earth malt notes are quickly followed by a slight watery edge just before the spicy fennel reminiscent bitterness kicks in. Yep, reminds me of a scotch ale. As far as that light watery escape toward the finish, I assume it’s a function of the age. While the body was smooth and moderately rounded, I expected more carbonation.

TheBeerGod (5466) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Bottled. Purchased at Le Vaudree. Brown body with a small brown head. Hazed ruby notes around the edges. Nose is malty with some light yeast notes, cocoa, weaker hints of caramel, dark malts and a faint floral aroma. Taste is dark fruits and watery brown sugar blended with dark malts and light spice. Body is creamy but fully carbonated. Finishes with a light cocoa and floral note rounding itself out with a mild yeast note.

Fine light brown head, unclear dark brown body. Roasted malt and brown sugar aroma with some spices and fruit also - typical dubbel! Oranges and malt in the flavor with a grassy tone and some sourness in the end. Foamy mouthfull. A good dubbel without beeing outstanding!

5000 (6300) - 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.
