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.

Not crazy about this Abbey Dubbel. Malty, caramel, and roasty flavors. Finish is sweet, creamy, and smooth.

750 ml bottle; Rather nondescript nose. Nice caramel sweet maltinesss. Rich. Pleasant underlying hoppiness. NOt overly complex. This is dangerously drinkable for its 7.5% alcohol content.

One of the first Belgian brunes I tried and still one of my favourites. It is locally available in bigger bottles as well which is very useful if you're in a crowded bar and no-one comes to your table for a while! It's best asset is the way it looks which is just about perfect; not as sweet as some fo the others and a nice bitterness which as an Englishman I appreciate! It's a great mixture between an English ale and some of the sweeter Belgian brunes.

Has a dark brown color to it. Very tasty beer, has nutty hints of chocolate. Has a nice roasty taste to it. The head on this beer was very frothy and stayed throughout the whole drink. Very enjoyable tasty brew!!

notalush (5280) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2003
Dark brown with hints of amber, large, lasting, off-white head - aroma of yeast, bread, some mustiness - flavor has a robust nutty character to it, with some chocolate notes - these give way to a hop bitterness that balances well with the earlier malt characteristics, lending to the nutty flavor a certain roasty aspect - finish gets a bit watery, and the flavors don't remain all that pronounced for very long, but this is still a decent offering.

Bottled: Burgundy coloured. Light beige lasting head. Yeasty, malty and light spicy in the aroma. Has some roastyness and caramel in the flavour. Malty and alcahol notes as well. A bit watery I think. Has a light bitter finish. Not as complex, as I expected, so this has disappointed me a bit. Maybe its a bad sample, who knows.

Malt, brown sugar aroma, clear ruby, large toffee head, pleasing lace. Roasted malt flavour, with raisins, demerara and brazil nuts. Sweet and bitter? Extremely Good!

Shag (2668) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 26, 2003
My first Belgian and a nice experience with a cigar. A good caramel, chocolate, and dark fruit flavor. Not as sweet as you would expect with a nice bitter flavor. Good Belgian.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 Sampled at Eric & Wendy’s "Go to Hell, Isabel" Party, 2003! ... This beer rocks!... Very murky, mahogany ale. Large, dark bits of vitamin-laden yeast floating around and then settling at the bottom of the glass. The aroma is of dark fruits, bread dough, light alcohol and brown sugar. A touch floral as well. Very tasty and well-balanced! Coffee, toffee and chocolate notes. Candied dates and dark raisins. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, astringent finish. World Class Brew!
