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.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2005
Chocolate, spices, marzipan, cherries and bitter orange in the aroma. Opaque ruby brown with shy, off-white head that recedes to ring. Nutty chocolate flavour with fair spiciness and a very present fruitiness. Moderate carbonation with medium-full body that fills the mouth nicely. Bottle sampled at the Voyager par des Papilles group tasting Feb-05.

rauchbier (3639) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2005
Bottle conditioned, at Essen Kerstbierfestival 2004. Deep ruby red, yellow/white head and moderate condition. Sweet buttery caramel and toffee in the nose, pleasant sweet malt and gentle hop flavours in the mouth. Sweet and buttery finish with a lingering fruitiness that could almost have been bananas.

Clear brown with some ruby notes when held to light. Lasting small-medium tan head. Big prune aroma, with some spicy notes. Bit of a let down with the flavour. Mildly sweet with some fruity notes and a spicy finish. Medium bodied. Great nose, inoffensive flavour.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2005
Dark amber color, mildly cloudy appearance. Little beige head. Sweet, caramel, toffee, chocolate and malty aroma, excellent one. Mild alcohol in aroma too. Flavor is nice one too:starts with sweet caramel and chocolate, ends with medium alcohol and dry mouthfeel. Caramel lasts with alcohol. Nicely crispy mouthfeel, full bodied.

I have sat on this since early December, Last night I need to celebrate! Poured a red mahogany with large off whit head. Aroma of malts some yeast and dark fruits as well. The flavors bite my tongue as well as nestle in my nose, and bang, alcohol kicks in fast. Good Belgian strong ale.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - JAN 30, 2005
This bottle has been in the fridge for the past two months tempting me with her siren song every time I open the door. I can’t take it any longer, I must have her now. A dark tea colored beer with beige small head. Scent of caramel candy and pumpkin pie. Sweet caramel flavors up front with a malty sweet & spicy middle, slight bitter follow with the alcohol noticeable on the way down. Rich & smooth and just the right warming beer for a cold snowy night like tonight. A fine example of why I love Belgian Strongs and big beers in general.

Yeast aroma. Very balanced, mellow, woody flavors with some spice. Roastiness somewhere in there. Herbal finish.
