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.

[bottle] Pours a nice dark brown color- head is light, white and fluffy. Aroma is strong and fruity, as is the taste. This is a fine brew, a treat for christmas.

Sjohnh (703) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Dark reddy brown body with a frothy tan head - very lively at first. Aroma of malt, brown sugar and sherry trifle. Good body, though no more than medium. Flavours include cherry, mulled wine, sugar and darker malts. Good, bit too sweet maybe.

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.

Milter (700) - Nyborg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2015
God og behagelig julel. Tilpas med krydderier. God smag, men med en anelse for meget alkohol.

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

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.
