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.

DYCSoccer17 (3590) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 24, 2009
750ml bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Aroma is a initially sweet, but it becomes quite peppery and spicy with some belgian dusty yeast notes. A little roastiness and some brown sugar is also present. The pepper prevails, though. Moderatley hazy amber body with an off-yellow/light tan head that is pretty large and pretty strong. Pretty nice lacing. Wow. Extremely metallic. Yikes. I feel like I am sucking on a penny. There is some sweet and sugary malt flavors in the middle with a bit of roastiness. Otherwise, this is dominated by a weird metallic flavor. Not a fan at all. As time goes on, the metallic flavor subsides, leaving a sweet, sticky mess behind. This beer is a fucking mess.

toast, herbs, alcohol, smoke, dough, Incredible aroma, but taste not that good, including palate. I liked a lot how it transformed while swallowed and the rich inner-nose it gives, its generous and the calories provided gives a full sensation.

Wolfbass (1069) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 19, 2016
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.
