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.

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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Brown bright ruby color with lots of carbonation. A nice tall cap of head and some extravagent lacing. The aroma has some banana/clove esters along with a sweet molasses malty note, very refined. The flavor is very yeasty & doughy; a little citrusy to boot. Heavily carbonated and a little spice of alcohol coming through. Finishes smooth with tons of yeast. A good belgian dubble, very true to style.
