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.

From a 750 ml bottle. huge head that will not go away. The body is dark brown and ruby with copious carbonation. The head is light tan. The aroma has some sweet pears and some earthy mushrooms. There is also a little moss and some leather. Everything is fresh smelling. The taste is rather dry pears and Macintosh apples with some light prunes. There is also carmel here. A very well doen dubbel.

09.14.05 750ml bottle, cork says lot no. 135376. Quite clear pour, ruby-mahogany; medium, dense, lasting tan head. Very attractive. Lightly sour aromas of pear, raisin, plum. Yeasty and dusty, plus a touch vinous. Something else rich like toffee or butterscotch. flavor compliments aromas and adds some dry, bitter floral notes. Lots of toffee and brown sugar. Tobacco and milk cocoa retronasally. Thick, almost syrupy, rich and full body is wonderul. Its not a great flavor although inasmuch as it doesnt all come to gether very well, but the components are delicious and the body is so pleasing it covers up some of the mess. Long and mild finish is mostly sweet but carries hints of those flowery hops which turn cleansingly astringent, woody. Nice stuff.

Smells great, like crisply snapped apples. Has a huge slow dissolving head, which tastes slightly of apples, but also of something heavier and less tasty that I cant place.The beer has the same thickness, with hints of the metal bottle, but is still quite good. Can be downed quickly and effortlessly.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2005
a sim rate: The smell and first impression of this beer is of chocolate and caramel. But thats not the last youre seeing of chocolate. Oh no! Full flavour. Thick. Smooth. Chocolate in the taste too. Tastes like a whole dessert in a glass. This is one of my old faves and definitely a top brune! Great creamy aftertaste that lingers like a great chocolate banquet!

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2005
This beer was served too cold. Brown colour with a hint of alcohol, with a little slow disappearing browny head. Malty with spices, caramel and spices. The flavour is more fruity than expected from the aroma, with a roasty finish.
