Pour is reddish brown with a tight, small bubbled tan head. Nose has a fair bit of dark malt, caramel is strong, light licorice, hints of apple and fruity esters. Taste is much of the same, light bitterness and herbal hop in the finish. Licorice mid palate, decent bit of richer malt up front, mostly caramel malts. Strong carbonation, lighter body.

This isn't the best of this style I've had by far. It wasn't bad by any means, just nothing special.
Pours almost like a soda with quick foaming head that recedes very quickly into nothing after a minute or so.

Smell is sweet with some cinnamon and spice to it. The taste is sweet as well but is really dumbed down by the amount of carbonation it has. Very fizzy in the mouth. Not a bad beer to try, but would probably only get it again if the beer store was out of my usual's.

St. Feuillien Brune explodes out of the 11.2 oz. bottle and has a thick, rocky, cream-colored head, a murky, bubbly, lighter-brown appearance, and a little bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread crust, light brown sugar, grain, and a touch of alcohol. Taste is of those elements with a grain husk aspect as well. Mouthfeel is medium and prickly, and St. Feuillien Brune finishes rich, sweet, and interesting.

25.4 oz. bomber poured into chalice
(9/11/13 born-on date)

L: classic dubble everything with a brown murky opaque liquid but very little head, barely enough of a head of caramel/tan to cover the surface of the brew; orange highlights up to the light, a hint of amber MAYBE -- much more orange; no stick or lace

S: fruity, figgy, WINE ... man, that first whiff smells like a red wine to me; loads of grapes, grape skins, fermented grapes; later on there might be some light malt sweetness (bread; sweet bread)

T: follows the nose at first then becomes a good solid steady stream of sweet fig, sweet fruit and a lot of yeast

F: fine. not overly carbonated but still very drinkable -- and a load more carbonation is in the column than what's showing in the weak head

O: while it's not the greatest dubbel in the land, this brew is more than giving me what I'd ask of a dubbel ... lots of sweet fruitiness, plenty of yeast, a perfectly hidden ABV over 7% and and all-around solid mouthfeel. at $11.04 for this 750 ML bottle, I feel like I got my money's worth, and it's good enough to have me curious about other St. Feuillien offerings.
