Bottle. Pours hazy brown with a thick beige head. Smell - caramel, chocolate and dark fruits. Taste - pretty sweet, with caramel, brown sugar, spices and dark fruits notes, slightly metallic aftertaste, alcohol is well hidden, but noticeable as it warms up. Medium body, med-high carbonation, nice creamy texture. Decent dubbel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
St. Feuillien Brune explodes out of the 11.2 oz. bottle and has a thick, rocky, cream-colored head, a murky, bubbly, lighter-brown appearance, and a little bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread crust, light brown sugar, grain, and a touch of alcohol. Taste is of those elements with a grain husk aspect as well. Mouthfeel is medium and prickly, and St. Feuillien Brune finishes rich, sweet, and interesting. RJT

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nothing too exciting, taste is ok, but a little dull. Biggest drawback is that it does not stand out in any way. There are more exciting beers of this style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Stubby bottle, 330 ml, poured into a tulip at home. ABV 8.5%
Deep red brown colour on a still transparent and clear body. Two fingers of tan head, froathy, with average to low retention, leaving light lacing around the glass’ walls.
Aroma of spices, caramel, alcohol, very nice and appealing.
Taste has lots of caramel and malts, even more spices. The alcohol is notable, offering a nice boy warmth. Some dark fruits also present.
Medium body, carbonation is high.
Overall very nice, with better head retention and less carbonation it would be even better.
