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.

sebsky (338) - ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2017
330 ml bottle,bb 06/08/2019.
Deep ruby with brown notes.
Nose - extreme liquorice (mistook it for soap for first ~10 minutes). After 15 minutes it's hard to say if there is anything else,liquorice drowns everything. After half hour aniseed and some spices emerges.
Taste - sweet as it should be,liquorice (heh),some dark fruit,caramel and aniseed.

Towey1989 (3332) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2017
Keg at Den Engel, Leek. A clear deep ruby colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of liquorice, dark fruits, orange peel, some red berries, slight bready malts, a little caramel and subtle spice. Taste of liquorice, dark fruits, red berries, some caramel, slight orange, a little star anise, a hint of alcohol and subtle spice. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A sweet, liquoricey fruit finish with a spicy bitterness in the aftertaste. As expected, a complex, Christmas Strong Ale. Lots of red fruits, spicy liquorice and a little star anise. Good but can tell it’s strong unlike certain competitors.
