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.

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.

Had it in the 750ml bottle. Pours a deep reddish-brown with a really frothy head. Aroma really suprised me... lots of raspberries and cherries, little alcohol, with some light malt and yeast. The flavor had more of those suprising raspberries... it almost reminded me of Dogfish Head Fort, but without the strong alcohol presence. Not like any brown Ive had before, if youre looking for a regular brown this one isnt for you, but if you like originality, try it. A really good beer.

Defreni (3142) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2007
Flaske. Brun abbey med et kmpe skumlag. Klassisk St Feuillien gr men dog ikke s overbevisende sm i deres trippel og pske. Ellers en rigtig god dubbel som dog led en del af at der lidt tidligere var blevet drukket en fantastisk Amarone vin.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby red with a puffy and medium-lasting tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, slight coriander/clove spice, and a bit of detectable malt. Taste is rich, with dark fruit and malt up front and a slight spicy aftertaste. Alcohol barely noticeable, not very bitter, and slightly metallic. Overall a very solid effort.

gnoff (10152) - Mlndal, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2007
(75 cl bottle purchased in Denmark) Clear red to copper color, fluffy tan head. Rich sweet and spicy scent. Strong sweet and spicy taste, metallic undertones. Smooth and big body. Low bitterness.

Perm (151) - Tryon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Nose: honey, caramel, black (Assam) tea. Nice bubbly presence in the glass that doesnt go away too quickly. Malty nuttiness on the tongue. A malty carnival ride, really, but a great main-course dinner beer for darker dishes: red wine-marinated mushrooms, wild rice, parsley, cipolini, maybe a good steak.
