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.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2006
750ml - 2005 - Aroma is spicy, malty, fruity with strawberry, cranberry, raisin. Pours dark brown with nice medium head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with the alcohol becoming a factor. Palate is creamy and smooth. Quite tasty and a little time might mellow the alcohol and spice to be even better.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Draft. Poured a medium brown with a thick tan head. The aroma was tantalizing with sweet spices and fruits. The taste is really smooth, way too smooth to be 9% abv. Sweet fruits and winter spices dominate the flavor. An excellent beer!

This bottled brew corked and caged marked 1/04 poured a large sized head of foamy of unnoted size mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was unnoted and very dark red brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild dark malt . Its mouth feel is initially tingly vinous with a slightly tingly mellow palate and a smooth aftertaste. Its flavor contained mild malty caramel roasted notes and was nice Belgian Strong Ale flavor. Very good flavor almost yummyAn excellent beer that I would buy again.

Very light brown colored head. The body is a murky medium brown color. The aroma is tart with dark cherries. There is also ginger bread, pears and cinnamon. The taste is sweet with some rich pears, cinnamon, and a little chocolate. The finish is harsh with some old chewed bubblegum. I like the start, but not the end of each sip. Still, this is a solid beer.

Brownish red color with a thick and lasting head. Aroma is sort of funny like burned spices. Dark fruits and lots of spice in the flavor with a nice bready finish. Sparkling mouthfeel. Almost no trace of alcohol. Good stuff.
