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.

Bottiglia da 75, bevuta verso la fine della cena, mi ha fatto davvero una bella impressione. Aspetto magnifico, bellissimo naso fruttato, e in bocca un gran corpo che scende meravigliosamente.

On tap: compared with the brune, this is better for me. "Chacun a son gout", on dit" This time, in a certain frame of mind, this is what I wanted. Beautiful color, low foam, no lacing to speak of. Smooth, satisfying, perfect "slow" beer. I would certainly drink it again. A ton sante!

From elcervecero. In Teku glass. After dinner. Surprisingly drinkable for its high ABV. Just the adequate spicy touch. A bit drier than my favourites but great still
