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.

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.

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 (12789) - 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 (3717) - 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!!!

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 (6888) - 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!

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.

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.
