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.

sinte (534) - Udine, ITALY - JUL 20, 2007
Bottle 0.33L. Hazy, dark amber body with a large, creamy, light-brown head, mostly lasting with a good lacing. Moderate malty aroma (caramel) with spicy and fruity (apple, cherry, raisin) notes. Moderate sweet and acidic flavour with a light bitter character at the beginning; then the sweet note becomes less intense while the bitter character grows up. Medium body with an oily texture; soft carbonation; light astringency; moderate alcoholic feeling in the finish. Very satisfactory; complex.

DruncanVeasey (8059) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2007
Beautifully rubyish pour topped with creamy beige suds. Rooty liquorice, red apple and delicate strawberry hops in the nose. Overripe berries, juicy raisins, fudgily caramelised chocolate-coated malt and underpinning hop loveliness. Silky and harmonious. Top-drawer Brune.

tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 God belgisk rdbrun klar ale, som har en god balance med den belgiske gr. Duften er dog som en classic med noter af karamel. Alcohollen er dog (for) meget tydelig.

Svesse (8006) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2007
(Bottle, Monks Caf, Stockholm) Dark reddish brown colour with huge, frothy, beige head. Malty nose with notes of dark fruit, prunes, dried figs, raisins, chocolate and dark rye bread. Malty, slightly burnt taste with dark/dried fruit, prunes and chocolate fudge. Slightly vinous finish with warming alcohol sweetness and spicy hops. Very solid and reliable abbey dubbel. A school book example. Very nice.
