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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On-tap 9/20/2013 at Julian’s in Providence, RI, served in an over-sized wine glass.

A: The beer is a bright reddish brown color, with a short beige head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains caramelized malts, Belgian yeast, fruit and spices.

T: The taste starts out very sweet with flavors of brown sugar, dark fruits, spices and caramel. Then some breadiness comes in from Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, slightly filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a decent beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.
