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.

fonefan (34282) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2006
Bottle. Copper brown color with a small off-white head. Malty, bready, yeasty aroma with mild alcohol notes. Starts sweet and ends sweeter, with a smooth full body.

yespr (30753) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 6, 2008
75 cL bottle. Pours dark amber to brown with a huge lasting tan head. Aroma is a mix of caramel malt, light spice note and subdued yeasty. Fruity and spiced initial flavour, presumeably from the yeast. Gains some darker notes like liqourice, roasted malt, spices and smooth, yet subdued, chocolate. Light alcohol note in the finish nicely lifting the mild spice and caramel malt flavours. Nice brew.

Ungstrup (29168) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2005
A hazy amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroam is sweet with strong notes of yeast, while the flavor is dusty (probably the hops), yeasty, combined with notes of berries.

A dark red beer with a good head. It is very fruity in as well the aroma as the flavor - but it has a well rounded flavor.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Pretty dark brown beer with a nice, brownish head. Yeasty nose, flavours of dried fruits, caramel and brown sugar. Very roasted malts. Very refined perfumyness - I reckon there might be some coriander thrown in here. An archetypical and excellent Dubbel. 140398

Brown colour with a huge beige head. Sweet aroma of yeast, spices and muscavado sugar. Flavour of muscavado sugar, yeast and spices. Not much bitterness. Nice dubbel.

oh6gdx (20247) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2006
Bottled. Dark brownish copper colour, mediumsized brown bubbly head. Aroma is chocolate, slight roasted malts and some flowery hops weak in the background. Flavour is roasted malts along with licorace and chocolate. Some slight hints of metal, but the metal disappears, once the beer gets a bit warmer. Long toffeeish hoppy aftertaste. Hides it’s alcohol well. A bit too biting/crispy carbonation, otherwise very nice.

omhper (19230) - 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.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2004
Dark amber color; huge rocky head! Nice malty aroma, with some roasted touch, yeast. Same for the taste: some malt and roasted malt, caramel; quite dry, probably not really mature.
Earlier Rating: 6/8/2002 Total Score: 3.8
Deep amber colour, generous thick head, beautiful lace. Very nice aroma, fresh, hoppy, some malt, sweetness. Good body, quite strong caramel, malt; some residual sweetness attenuated by a very light astringency. More ordinary palate. Good strong ale, with some aging potential.
