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.

frankenkitty (2008) - 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 Years 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.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - DEC 23, 2007
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, didnt have trouble finishing the glass, but there are other examples Id probably rather have. Worth a try.

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

750 ml bottle purchased at Wine on the 9. Pours a cloudy mud colored brown with a nice size light biege head that never fully disipates. Big sweet initial aroma with lots of yeast, raisin, sugar and brown bread. Medium bodied with noticable carbonation on the back of your throat that is slightly biting. Flavor is not as sweet as the nose would lead you to believe. Grainy bready flavor with notes of yeast, dark fruit and brown sugar. While this is a good beer it is not great but then again neither is my vertical leap.

Erdinger2003 (127) - West Union, Iowa, USA - DEC 13, 2007
This beer pours a gorgeous pillowy head that falls into a little head with a lacing thats stuck to the glass. Color is dark and clear amber when held up to the light. The smell is very hoppy and strong with very flowery hops. It has a slight sugar candy smell to it, and it also has a nutty flavor to it. Taste is fairly hoppy with many flavors, like a big nutty flavor. It has a slight scent of banana for a flavor, but that is overpowered by so many other flavors.

750 ml bottle intended for our dubbel tasting but overlooked in my lack of beer cellar. So after some extended bottle conditioning in andrews fridge, its finally popped.
Pours a reddish brown with a beige head. Fruity nose with malts and a touch of grain and sour. Apples, red fruit, grains, and that touch of sour in the flavor. Meh.
