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.

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.

Dunque, dall’aroma questa birra non può che sembrarmi interessantissima. L aroma infatti è pungente, pesante, ed anche variegato. La liquirizia si sente subito, come il sentore vago di Coca-Cola, toffee, e un minimo di granoturco saltato in padella con del burro. Se fosse un minimo più lungo l’aroma rallresenterebbe il top. Meno bene visivamente, dove l’abbondante schiuma non è resistente troppo, e troppo sgranata per sembrare bella. L’aroma, comunque, dopo un po’ sembra aggiungersi anche di zucchero filato. Alla lingua il sapore di toffee e liquirizia non rende giustizia all’aroma precedentemente riscontrati, ma sicuramente invoglia a bere. Poco rotonda la birra, con anche poca frizzantezza. Bene così, in bocca si sprigionano finalmente le prugne, il lievito, e il finale caldo e lungo. Che TJ fa pensare che berne ancora non farà male. Ed è questo il merito, la bocca rimane piena e pulita, ma desiderosa di un altro sorso. Solo le buone birre ci riescono.

Alusmamuts (281) - LATVIA - AUG 26, 2014
Brown with cosistent rich yellow cap. Sour carbonatd on the tongue tip, becoming nicely mixed of sourness, some bitterness and some sweetness towards the root, where some bitterness remains.

fishonmyplane (439) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Muted, malty aroma. The flavor is mainly Belgian candi sugar with light strawberry and lots of toasty bitterness. Palate is rich and heavy. Recommended if you like your dubbels strong and bitter.

Een lekker donker bier zoals het moet zijn, met veel smaak aan. Net als de blonde en de tripel

McWorta (592) - LUXEMBOURG - AUG 8, 2014
Dark brown light hazy in colour with a medium lasting dark white head. On the nose aromas of dark fruit, toffee and malts develop. The texture is light lively with a full body and fruity flavours enveloped by a faint hop bitterness. The finish is lasting and light chewy.

bonkiedeaap (261) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle from the Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a ruby brown color and a large cream colored head, with a lot of bubbles. The aroma is fruity from the dark fruits. Also a hint of caramel, roasted malts and a little alcohol. The taste is fruity and also a little sweet from the liquorice and caramel. Also a light bitter is noticable from the roasted malts. The finish is warm and light bitter and is long.

Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light bitter, after that sweet and light acidic and finally bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Quite nice.

beleggor (60) - Wrocław, POLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle 0,33l. Pours with big white head, that disappears quickly and left a small ring. Mahogany brown colour. In aroma there are caramel, some raisins, spicy notes and an alcohol, that is not well hidden. It’s highly carbonated and have a nice mouthfeel. In taste it’s sweet with some gerbal bitterness, but there is some alcohol. Nice one, but would be better if alcohol will be better hidden.

I’m not a fan of brown ale. So my score may be abit biased. This though is an excellent e.g. of a deep brown ale. Very caramel and full of spicey tones. With a big head. I wouldn’t buy again but I’m sure many brown ale fans will love this.
