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.

benpickens (491) - Camarillo, California, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Reddish brown, clear, with ample light colored brown head. Smells of fresh baked bread, cloves, and cinnamon. Sweet and acidic with a long lasting malt finish.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 14, 2006
Bottle, a gleaming dark ruby red with a bubbly beige head (that dissipated quickly). A warm and rich malty aroma and touches of yeast. Rich malty flavour again with peppery notes towards the finish. Quite a bit of carbonation in the mouth, with a sour tangy finish. Not as good as the Blonde.

HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2006
Bottle (330ml). Via trade with mouton_noire. Murky deep chestnut, large creamy tan head with a lovely thick lace. Sharp peppery yeast, sweet malt, bitter and lactic. Taste is a nice sour malt tang, bitter alcohol in the finish, lightly spiced, improves dramatically as it warms. Average body, nicely lively and complex mouthfeel, slightly sour aftertaste, pretty good.

themadmumis (347) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - NOV 8, 2006
One of the least impressive Belgians Ive had... rated at a 3.7. Not too bad for an average brew. Take the commercial description and wind it down some and you have this one. One of the weaker Belgians Ive experienced... Chimay and Unibroue supplies more, but definately true...

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2006
On tap. Dark amber coloured with a small head. malty and sweet with notes of yeast and caramel. A bit too boring though.

Stefano (1994) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2006
Deep copper to ruby in color with a small off-white head.malty/bready/yeasty aroma with mild alcohol notes. Starts sweet and ends sweeter, with a smooth full body. A beer that gets better as it warms up.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Pours a brownish amber color. Aroma is huge of deep fruityness and aged cognac. Has a fruity flavor, with a nutty background and an anisette like element. Alcohol is somewhat surfaced, but pleasant and has a late spicy, roasty toffee like aspect. Nice Dubbel, well done.
