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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Pretty dark brown beer with a nice, brownish head. Yeasty nose, flavours of dried fruits, caramel and brown sugar. Very roasted malts. Very refined perfumyness - I reckon there might be some coriander thrown in here. An archetypical and excellent Dubbel. 140398

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JUN 24, 2005
Bottle from Open All Hours, Keswick. Good Dubbel, but (atypically) not as good as their ’blond’. Dark ruby brown. Good head. Malty, dried fruit aroma. Good rounded malty taste. Finish slightly roasty, hop not dominant.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2005
Pours a reasonable brown colour with light brown head. Flavour was not good enough that I remember anything distinct about it, but I found the taste to be sour and skunky. A far cry from Chimay Rouge.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2005
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a nice large off-white head which stays around for some time. The aroma has Christmas fruits including raisins and plums. The taste is very full with brown bread, raisins, prunes and figs. A really good full-bodied tasty dubbel
