COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Also sold as St Feuillien Spciale 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 Cuve de Nol has a very subtle bitterness that is the dominant flavour in this harmonious ale that strikes a perfect balance between all the different ingredients.

This Ale should be stored for about a year so stock up for the next xmas the year before... Fresh St. Feuillien Nel is a bit to alcoholic. Aged the the flavours really come thru, the ale is smoother due to no alcohol-sharpness

PorterPounder (5572) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2004
750 ml bottle - Market Sq Liquors - Tallahassee, Fl. Pours a murky medium brown with a sticky, mocha colored head. Sweet, but not pervasive malty aroma with hints of spice and some raisins. Flavor has some chocolate notes with a brandy-like finish. Some fruitiness in the form of dates make their way in there as well. Mouthfeel is pleasant, not too carbonated - just the right thickness.

On tap, Pizza Port Strong Ale Fest. cquiroga is right, this is like anchors christmas release Belgian style. Slightly spicy. Too sugary and sweeter than I like it. Overall this is not my type of beer. Still, it is very nicely made.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2004
Exhuberant light brown head on top of a ruby red/brown body. This beer has a strong taste, with fruits and nuts, but also bitterness in the taste. Whats more, I could distinctly feel the alcohol in this brew, which is never very nice. Id say its a half-failure as a Chisrtmas ale.
