Also sold as ’St Feuillien Spéciale’ in the USA. 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.

Typisch donker kerstbier. Heerlijk van smaak. Een zware jongen maar smaakt zeker zo niet. Probeer ook de vorige jaargangen, zeker in flessen van 75cm, het bier betert met de jaren

Foffern (1415) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle at home. 2 years old. Pours a hazy, deep brown head and big, soapy, beige head. Careful aroma of dried fruit, berries, chocolate, dried meat and leather. A little careful. The flavour has more leather, meat, coffee, some chocolate and wood. Has a slick and silky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Proper dark Belgian ale but a little light maybe.

Bottle. Pours clear dark mahogany with a huge beige to yellow head, some lacing. The aroma is sweet with brown sugar, sweet caramel, fruity with grape sugar and ripe dark fruits, banana, and some vanilla. The taste is sweet and balanced with some bitterness. Very smooth and pleasant palate, easy to drink, nice Christmas beer.
