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.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours opaque, amber, copper with light tan, smallish head and light lace. Aromas of big malts; toffee, biscuit, pitted fruits, among a spicy clove dough earthen yeast character. Medium chewy near sickly sweet body, medium zesty carbonation. Finish is malty, sweet and lingering - sweetness dominating the yeast character for a satisfying malty sweet finish.

Cybion (86) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours dark, reddish, cloudy brown with a hefty amount of lively tan head, which does sink fairly quickly to around a finger, leaving a small amount of lacing. Aroma is a little subdued overall though i’m getting some foresty, floral notes with wood and dark fruits lingering behind, but all fairly low intensity as I mentioned. Small hint of smoke perhaps. Taste is primarily sweet and quite fruity up front; brown sugar, lemon, blackcurrent, honey, raisins. After this comes the main body of the malt; sweet and bready, like brioche or something. Not much in the way of a finish other than some lingering cereal and dark fruit. Fairly sharp on the palate with lively carbonation but body and texture wise this is smooth and silky. Good overall but lacking depth and complexity beyond the pleasing initial sweetness.

Bottle 0.33 l, Carrefour, Wrocław, Poland.
Ciemnokasztanowe piwo o puszystej, jasnobeżowej pianie oraz przyjemnym, lekko kwaskowym aromacie. W smaku słodowe, lekko palone z posmakiem kwaśnych wiśni oraz rozgrzewające gardło na finiszu.

rami_pl (243) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 21, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2015 Bardzo duza piana, choc dosc nierownej faktury. Bardzo owocowy zapach, poza sliwkami czy rodzynkami, bananami nawet truskawki. tez slody, karmel - zapach raczej slodko odbierany. w smaku bardzo orzezwiajace, alkohol ladnie zamaskowany. smaki dosc analogiczne do aromatu. niekiedy lekko kwaskowate wrazenie - to roznica z aromatem. koncowka bardzo lekko goryczkowa, nieco grzejaca ale nadal bez smaku alkoholu. bardzo wysokie wysycenie, az szczypie w jezyk. Bardzo pozytywne piwo.
