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.

Nice carmel color with a big tan head. Fruity carmel aroma, with some metallic notes mixed in. Malty carmel fruit palate with a little metal thrown in. Easy drinking and not bad.

Rich pour of dark amber liquid. Initial tall head settles to a taller layer of light tan bubbles with heavy lace. Fruity aromas, with pears, plums, oranges and bananas. Undertones of caramel and light licorice. First taste is somewhat a disappointment after the aroma and appearance. I think I will be taking these words back after this warms a touch. Slow start, but thinks kick in mid quaff. Loads of malt flavors coming through as the lively effervescence reveals itself. Just noticed the lace again, fully sheets the glass. Malt flavors include toffee, brown sugar, lightly toasted malt, modest licorice and rye. Once again I do have to state my preference for malty brews. Hints of hopsack in te initial sip. Finish seems dry but later the malt comes back and as this one warms a touch of warming alcohol is evident. Carbonation leaves a spicy feel on the tongue. More like cloves than pepper. I am impressed with the brews from this abbey.

dark brown colour with a giant creamy head, nutmeg and anis aroma with chocolatey notes, medium-bodied, rounded maltiness, creamy with a touch of finishing acidity, dry malty finish - fresh with lot of character
Earlier Rating: 11/8/2001 Total Score: 3.9
dark brown colour, a superb creamy, slightly brown-tainted head and a beautiful lacing give it a wonderful appearance; malty and caramelish aroma with fine touches of spices, sweet, very creamy mouthfeel and full-bodied, a respectable bitterness before a long malty and spicy finish - character and balance for this good brew

Amber pour with a small white head. Caramel nose along with a nice blend of floral hops and malts. Flavors consist of coriander, caramel, sweet malts and a hint of liquorice. Nice balance of hops as well. Full bodied with a spicy palate, and a pleasent finish of hops.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 24, 2004
750 ml bottle: Hazy brown with a big stable off-white head. Brown sugar and alcohol aroma with hints of dark fruits. Starts sweet and ends sweeter, with a smooth full body. A beer that gets better as it warms up.

750 mL [corked and caged]: dark cedar brown. A light brown mountain of a head: rocky and strong with a hint of grey. Earthy, limestone aroma full of pine, dark plums, prunes, yeast, chalk, and dusty chocolate. Sticky, tightly carbonated palate – which is one of my favourite things. Fruitiness comes out on the tongue first (bananas, tart strawberries and white grapes), followed by dry caramel, bitter chocolate, and a nice creaminess. A beautiful beer from a brewery that I think is very nice.

Dark reddish brown with a rocky tan head. Sweet nose with chocolate and caramel, some yeasty notes. Tangy flavor, a bit watery on the palate. Has a light crisp bitterness offsetting an underlying chocolatey flavor.
