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.

lello4ever (584) - ITALY - JUL 10, 2016
Tonaca di frate, media. Schiuma frizzantina. Aroma abbastanza di malto con nota floreale. Al palato un po’ piatta, manca una nota decisa, dolce, frutta secca. Carbonazione elevata. Dubbel solo sufficiente

Lele (382) - Padova, ITALY - JUL 3, 2016
ASPETTO: marrone mogano scuro, schiuma beige dorata, abbondante, fine e persistente. AROMA: caramello, leggero liquoroso, fruttato. GUSTO: birra tendente al dolce, ma allo stesso tempo equilibrata. Si avvertono tutti i sentori che al naso, più frutta secca e prugna secca. Corpo strutturato. Veramente ottima.

Bill Becker (771) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAY 29, 2016
2014. The cork shot out like a rocket when I removed the cork. Pours a see through garnet with plenty of foam and lacing. Candi sugar, dark fruit, with some spice in the smell. Dark fruit, mostly raisins, candi sugar, cinnamon and a pronounced cardboard flavour; could be past its prime. Medium body with medium carbonation. The way the cork shot out, I thought it might be over carbonated. Not terrible at this stage in its bottled life but I have little desire to revisit.
