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.

33 cl bottle, best before end 21.09.11, tasted in Kasteel 11 glass Bottle had a thick ring around the neck with tons of yeast floaties when poured. Aroma-musty, earthy, burlap, sweet-sour tart fruit. Appearance-fluffy lively tan head, murky brown color. Taste-a creamy well-balanced mix of sweet cinnamon, pepper, candy sugar, caramel, a touch of anise with a slightly sour-flinty-herbal finish. Palate-medium bodied, creamy, lively carbonation. The 9% alcohol is hidden quite well. A very good beer despite being past its date.

Koelschtrinker (17730) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 28, 2016
Malzig cremiger Antrunk. Typische belgische Hefigkeit, Nuancen von Lakritz, die Trockenheit sorgt für eine ausgleichende Balance zum süßlichen Alkohol. Süffig, zum Ende stärker nach Kräutern. 12/11/13/11/9/12

Bière très crémeuse, mousse abondante. Un peu écœurante. On est sur le caramel et le biscuit. Mais c’est très lourd et peu équilibré

mice (819) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Korkin avaamisen jälkeen olut suorastaan ryöppysi ulos pullosta, vaikka pullo oli ollut paikallaan jääkaapissa useamman viikon. Kesti todella pitkään, että koko pullon sai kaadettua trappistilasiin. Punertavanruskea olut todella runsaalla vaahdolla. Suurin osa vaahdosta kuitenkin häviää aika nopeasti; pitsiä jää hieman. Tuoksu perinteisen belgihiivainen ja marjainen. Maku karamellisen makeahko, runsaan marjainen, aika kuivahko kokonaisuus ja loppupuoleltaan yllättävänkin kuivan katkera. Perinteiset belgifiilikset siis häipyivät aika lailla kokonaan kuvasta. Marjaisuudesta huolimatta ei oikein myöskään joulufiilistä. Keskitasoa.

susonagger (200) - spain, - JUL 20, 2016
Esta cerveza tiene una generosa cabeza de espuma, compacta y firme. Su color marrón profundo es el resultado de la cebada tostada. Tiene un aroma muy intenso. Las hierbas aromáticas y las especias utilizadas mejoran su delicioso aroma. Esta cerveza tiene un cuerpo completo con una suavidad que es el resultado de la sinergia de maltas caramelizadas, fermentación controlada cuidadosamente y largo almacenamiento en frío. St-Feuillien Cuvée de Noël tiene una amargura muy sutil. Una Ale armoniosa que logra un equilibrio perfecto entre todos los diferentes ingredientes.

Jultsu (753) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2016
BBE 26.06.2017. Tummanpunertavan ruskea väri, viipyvä ok vaahto. Sammutettu tuoksu vaahdon läpi, suutuntuma viipyvän vetinen, ei erityisen alkoholinen prosentteihin nähden, pientä pirteää hedelmäisyyttä, samettisen tunkkainen. Hyvä.

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.
