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.

Very nice beer. I tasted it last night in wonderful compagny, so if it looks like it didn't had my head with it, I can't say that i'm sorry... Sweet, great aroma. May be a little bit too cold, who cares?

Hansen (6440) - Assentoft, DENMARK - APR 28, 2003
Perfect appearance, amber and big lacing head. The aroma was a little perfumed, and that goes for the flavor to, it reminds me of a little bit of soap. Not that pleasent!

skortila (4424) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2003
Fruity and roasted malty aroma. Dark brown/reddish coloured. Beautifull frothy head doesn't last long. Taste is sweet, fruity, malty and a bit spicy perhaps. Quite okay. Palate is sweet, moderate bitter, but a little alcholic perhaps.

RichardGretton (4221) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2003
Dark brown beer with a medium forthy head. Roasted bitterness to its flavour with a slightly watery tinge, and a lightly alcoholic aroma. Overall a smooth drinkable beer.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2003
Red-amber coloured beer with a big creamy head. Fruity and malty aroma and taste. Rather dry and maybe a very slight metallic taste. Dry aftertaste.
Earlier Rating: 12/18/2002 Total Score: 3.4
Clear amber coloured beer with big, light brown head. Slightly fruity aroma, pears, I think. There is also a hint of a malt and rubber in the aroma. Malty taste with a slightly bitter finish. Somewhat lively palate.

argo0 (11327) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 4, 2003
Murky brown with creamy tan head. Aroma is medium sweet with raisin. Taste is malty, raisin, medium sweetness. The body seemed a bit watery, as evidenced by the absence of lacing. A good beer, but they make better.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2003
Light roasted, spicy and prune aroma. Brown/redish color, light brown head, good lace. Roasted, wood, little smoked, prune, sweet. Long sweet finish. Another great beer by Friart, one of the most beautiful breweries i've ever seen as well.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2002
Dark brown with thick, long-lasting head. Complex nose, malty and yeasty. Malty taste, but not as thick and full-bodied as i was hoping for. Malty and a bit dry finish.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2002
Chestnut appearance with a nice haze and medium head. Aromas of dates, plums, yeast and mild medicinal aroma. Malty, yeasty with subdued dark fruits and light medicinal qualities up front. Some chocolate flavors, quite malty without being overly so. Finish is dry and somewhat bitter with no real, lingering aftertaste to contemplate. Enjoyable and fairly complex - several different flavors to pick apart. Thanks to PsychProf!
