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.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2006
75 cL bottle. Brown/amber color and a bit cloudy and a small head. The aroma is big with caramel and malt and alcohol. The flavor is largely caramel with some alcohol coming through with a good, yeasty body. There is a prune flavor coming through along with some nutmeg, pepper, and fruit flavors. Great beer.

On tap at Toronado. This dark brown ale poured with a miniscule off-white head. The flavor is very malt, with a bitter finish that sticks to the palate. There is a spicy presence that is somewhat peppery, making the overall taste a bit harsh.
