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.

Bottle: Dark brown colored pour with thick head. Sweet, caramal, malty aroma. A nice sweet, roasted malts finish. I enjoyed this.

bevuta alla spina non nel suo bicchiere sentori tostati lievi piacevole ma non esaltante forse il fusto era aperto da un po’ in bocca malto tostato liquirizia caramello

Dark red/brown color with a white head that left a solid lacing. Strong smell of nuts, grapes, and cherry. Taste is of nuts, dark fruit, and toffee. A little different, but not bad. Plenty of carbonation and full bodied. Decent, didn’t have trouble finishing the glass, but there are other examples I’d probably rather have. Worth a try

Received as a gift set with two other St. Feuillien brewfrom a non beer geek friend. Thanks Dave! Poured from bottle. Color was burnt orange and amber. Smell was all sweetness and malts. Taste was much milder then expected. Carbonated. Sweet caramel and malts. Very light mouthfeel. Very little finish. I liked the over all feel of this, but wish it had just a bit more something...

Hazy brown with light brown head. Malty aroma with yeast, fruits and toffee. Sweet flavor with roasted malt, overripe fruits and good balance.

frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2007
A cork pops with enthusiasm and here I pour a beautiful, hazy bronze beer with a vermillion glow... lightly carbonated under a soft, thick, cookie-dough colored head which holds forever. Its aroma is suggestive of the cellar – dank and mysterious with earth and soft, rotting wood. Deeper notes of caramel and pitted fruit add a sense of sweetness (as well as a level of comfort and familiarity). The fruitiness of cherry & peach also enhances the "darkness" of its flavor. Old leaves, thin whisky, hint of nickel. Full-bodied and fluffy in the mouth with a mild stickiness to let these tasteful memories linger for quite some time.

I started on RateBeer three years ago today. And while I have made it a habit to rate a Unibroue beer on New Year’s Eve (and to compile a total of 666 ratings per year), 2007 has slipped away from me and my rating habits are far from the only things to have gone all "willy-nilly". Regardless, St. Feuillien Brune was a fine note with which to end the year, and I look forward to many more delicious adventures like this one in ’08.

Bottle at home. Dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma heavy malty (caramel, brown sugar, dark dried fruits), moderate hoppy. Flavor heavy sweet, moderate bitter, well balanced. Medium/full body.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - DEC 15, 2007
Bottiglia da 33cl al Duca; versa colore marrone rossiccio molto scuro, ma potrebbe fare più schiuma. Aroma piuttosto "caldo", alcolico e note di tostatura che riprendono vigore nel sapore, tuttavia penalizzato da scarsa complessità e da un corpo estremamente acquoso. Tutto sommato il bilancio non è dei migliori, è stato difficile un po’ per tutti finirla.
