In this review I take a deeper look at the 3rd of 5 beers from Brasserie St. Feuillien that I received from Artisanal Imports for review….Brune Réserve
Brewery’s 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 Réserve a typical dark chocolate appearance. This beer creates an endless variety of sensations with a lingering taste and powerful aroma.
Food Pairings: Desserts: Oatmeal raisin cookies, ginger snap cookies, Pecan Pie. Cheeses: gruyere, muenster, brie, goat milk. Entree: Beef Roast, Lamb shanks, roasted poultry.
