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 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.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Pours a deep orange/amber with a large tan head. Aroma is of raisin, caramel, lots of brown sugar. Flavor repeats the aromas but with the addition of Belgian yeast, heavy cream, some biscuit flavors. Ashy/sweet finish. Full mouthfeel/viscosity, medium carbonation. A very enjoyable Christmas ale from St. Feuillien, as anticipated. Overall, very good to excellent.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Pours opaque ruby brown brimmed by a frothy and dense tan head. The aroma... Rich maltiness and caramel malt, strident spiciness, perhaps from the yeast. Lightly fruity almost like tart apples.. Some hops seem to be present in the nose. Crazy. Flavor is very malty, fruity malt and caramel malt, considerable spice, some bitterness, tastes like hops but may be a product of the spice as this style usually doesnt display hops lightly sticky sweet finish and aftertaste. That is one tasty abbey ale. Good stuff.

Anker (723) - Hillerd, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2011 Bottle 2008, exp 19.09.09. Pours a nice mahogany colour with a tan head. Pipe dates, nuts, caramel and a hint of alcohol in the aroma. Flavour is very similar with bitter notes and a nice balance. No signs of oxidation. This was much better than a fresh bottle.

Liqurish and floral aroma. Dark Brown appearence with a fine head. Light bitter and sweet. I Think there is to much carbonation.

Milter (712) - Nyborg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2015
God og behagelig julel. Tilpas med krydderier. God smag, men med en anelse for meget alkohol.

janubio (705) - SPAIN - DEC 3, 2014
Brown-reddish colour, with huge head that leaves a good lace and crown. Smell of dark fruits, spices, nutmeg licorice, cinnamon and almonds. Medium body, good carbonation. Taste is similar to the smell: spices, licorice, almonds, dark fruits.

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.

GSAP (693) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2012
Gebrand suiker, appel, chocolade en vanille als aroma. Veel komt terug in de smaak, licht kruidig ook. Fijne nasmaak met voortzetting dat kruidig aandoet. Maand overtijd.
