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.

Alengrin (2060) - BELGIUM - OCT 6, 2014
The brown counterpart of Saint-Feuillien Blonde, harder to find; deep bronze colour, yellowish beige head, soft and dryish character, somewhat yeasty, dried fruits, some roasted bitterness in the finish and in that sense another Scotch in disguise, as there are still many around in Belgium.

adster (424) - HUNGARY - OCT 2, 2014
Ánizsos karakterű, kissé likőrös beütésű illatai egy rendkívül savas, szinte már csípősen élénk főzetet takarnak, melynek stílusjegyei között az édesgyökérszerű zamatok, medvecukros jelleg és egy nagy adag, mazsolásan malátás karakter érhető tetten. Jómagam a nyugodtabb dubbelekért jobban odavagyok, bár a főzet vadsággal teli jelleme is elismerésre méltó értékeket rejt.

Trappist1 (521) - Diest, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2014
Brown color with brown head. Malt and very herbal in the nose. Taste is bit of dark malts, spices, bit peppery, anice. Smooth soft MF, round, bitter sweet finish. Not my type of brown but definitely Okey beer.

Fashawn (115) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 19, 2014
Dunque, dall’aroma questa birra non puň che sembrarmi interessantissima. L aroma infatti č pungente, pesante, ed anche variegato. La liquirizia si sente subito, come il sentore vago di Coca-Cola, toffee, e un minimo di granoturco saltato in padella con del burro. Se fosse un minimo piů lungo l’aroma rallresenterebbe il top. Meno bene visivamente, dove l’abbondante schiuma non č resistente troppo, e troppo sgranata per sembrare bella. L’aroma, comunque, dopo un po’ sembra aggiungersi anche di zucchero filato. Alla lingua il sapore di toffee e liquirizia non rende giustizia all’aroma precedentemente riscontrati, ma sicuramente invoglia a bere. Poco rotonda la birra, con anche poca frizzantezza. Bene cosě, in bocca si sprigionano finalmente le prugne, il lievito, e il finale caldo e lungo. Che TJ fa pensare che berne ancora non farŕ male. Ed č questo il merito, la bocca rimane piena e pulita, ma desiderosa di un altro sorso. Solo le buone birre ci riescono.

Alusmamuts (361) - LATVIA - AUG 26, 2014
Brown with cosistent rich yellow cap. Sour carbonatd on the tongue tip, becoming nicely mixed of sourness, some bitterness and some sweetness towards the root, where some bitterness remains.
