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.

Bamsen78 (3389) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy dark copper brown with airy but stable beige head. Clear aroma of caramel malt and fruit, with hints of yeast and touches of hops. Sweetish flavour of malt, yeast and caramel, complemented by sourish notes of dried fruit and bitter touches of hops. Sour-sweetish aftertaste with mildly bitter notes. A decent Abbey Dubbel.
