COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer has a generous head - compact and firm. Its slightly brown colour is the result of the roasted barley. It has a dark ruby brown colour and a very intense aroma. The aromatic herbs and spices used greatly enhance its delicious smell. This beer is full-bodied with a smoothness that is the result of the synergy of caramelized malts, carefully controlled fermentation and long cold storage. St Feuillien Cuvée de Noël has a very subtle bitterness that is the dominant flavour in this harmonious ale that strikes a perfect balance between all the different ingredients.

On tap: compared with the brune, this is better for me. "Chacun a son gout", on dit" This time, in a certain frame of mind, this is what I wanted. Beautiful color, low foam, no lacing to speak of. Smooth, satisfying, perfect "slow" beer. I would certainly drink it again. A ton sante!

From elcervecero. In Teku glass. After dinner. Surprisingly drinkable for its high ABV. Just the adequate spicy touch. A bit drier than my favourites but great still

Bawelt (458) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 24, 2016
Vraiment agréable, douce, pas trop épicée ou écoeurante comme on peut souvent en trouver dans ce style. Nez léger, très porte sur le pain d’épices assez caramelisé. Équilibré, rond.

33cl bottle. Dark copper color. Thin beige head. Medium sweetness. Medium bitterness. Aroma is woody, caramel, fruity. It’s been a long time since I enjoyed a belgian strong ale, but this is quite nice.

Dark brown red beer with a tan head. Aroma is malty with some notes of alcohol. Flavour is similar with some spices and a bit of caramel. Very nice Christmas beer. (Bottle 33cl)

Diabobale (436) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JAN 27, 2016
La classica birra di Natale. Una strong ale molto carica. Di colore ebano con ottimi riflessi rubini, con ottima schiuma beige molto fine, compatta, cremosa e persistente. Al naso note vinose accompagnano le note fruttate (dattero e prugna secca) su una buona base di caramello. Speziatura quasi impercettibile. Al palato è ben carbonata, con un corpo strutturato. In bocca ancora tante note caramellate, di melassa, con buoni sentori di frutta passita (prugna). Finale secco con warming etilico sempre presente.

vadie (1203) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2016
Couleur du caramel foncer, presque marron, avec une grande robe beige foncer. L’arôme des épices, fruits mûrs et caramel. Le goût et pareille, sucré mais pas trop, et bien équilibré avec une finale doucement amer.
