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.

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.

madsberg (10595) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2003
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.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2003
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 (2649) - 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!

Clear brown apperance. More watery than any other belgian I have had. Some peppery spice. Not bad.

omhper (20555) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2003
Bottled. Nut brown, hazy. Aroma of banana and butterscotch. Malty , soft and rounded. Toffee finish with some bitterness. Wonderfully balanced.
Earlier Rating: 8/5/2003 Total Score: 3.5
Bottled. Dark mahogany. Aroma of coffee and herbal spices. Sweet,soft and medium bodied. Notes of anise and yeast. Mature and rather complex, I guess this has been laying around for some time before I sampled it.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2003
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.

JFGrind (1892) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2003
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.
