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.

Shark_Pants (663) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2016
330ml bottle, BB 14 Aug 16. Pours dark clear ruby red with huge dense tan head. The aroma has many Christmas pudding notes - cherries, brandy, raisins, dates, cinnamon, nutmeg and other spices. Notes from the aroma are all reflected in the taste, along with a gentle woody bitterness. Medium bodied and slightly oily. Very good.

Kauge (1708) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle; BB 14.09.2016. Pours a coppery red with a big, very well retaining beige head leaving some lace as it slowly drops. Looks really good, except for the tacky label. The aroma is modest in intensity, but extremely pleasant of gingerbread spices and aniseed, vanilla, and plums. Tastes almost as nice, its indeed spicy and sweet, fruity, but the alcohol shines through quite obviously, which, interestingly, I find to be a good thing in this context. Theres also vanilla and anise, brown sugar and almonds. Soft on the palate with thin, close to active carbonation. The mouthfeel is Id say nearing watery. Red berry bitter and dry finish. Overall... although I wholeheartedly detest liquours like Jgermeister (or Gabriel and Agnes - the Estonian varieties), I get a similar character here, and for a strange reason I like it. And I like it a lot. Of course, the beer is obviously more pleasant to drink, more sweet and less boozy, but the spice bouquet is indeed similar. A pleasant surprise - I thought I wouldnt like it as much as I do.

alteregoo (1149) - POLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Piana dość obfita, średnio pęcherzykowa, sycząca ale trwała. Barwa mahoniowo rubinowa, opalizująca, spore musowanie w szkle. W aromacie karmel, przyprawy, skunks, nieprzyjemny stary chmiel i żelazo (test skrny wyraźnie to potwierdza). Niestety zawd. W smaku dość słodko, miodowo, czuć toffi, suszone owoce, kompot bożonarodzeniowy, przyprawy korzenne... Żelazo bardzo przeszkadza też w smaku. Goryczka niska, pikantna. Alkohol spory, lekko rozpuszczalnikowy. Nagazowanie wysokie, szampańskie. W odczuciu nieco lepkie.

Bottiglia da 33 cl, di un bel colore marrone scuro, con una schiuma persistente e di color nocciola. All olfatto ottimo odore di caramello e apezie, al palato gusto forte di spezie, amara al punto giusto...ottima

Goed kerstbier waarin veel smaken terugkomen. Wel smaakt het wat geroosterd. Ik houd daar niet zo van. Maar gelukkig overheerst het niet.

Hamirubi (577) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2016
33cl bottle at home (10 I 2016). Very firm light brown foam tops a reddish, dark brown ale. The flavours are Belgian yeasts, black pepper spices and some berries or red fruit. Not bad at all, although the yeasts tend to have a dirty flavour. The taste is medium sweet, without being caramellish, and with a lovely carbonation. There is a very subtle fruity sweetness with mint features. The overall mouthfeel is pretty flat, Im afraid, with an almost oxidated, iron finish. A good standard winter beer.

tomekboniek (578) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Butelka. Barwa ciemno brunatna, wydaje się klarowna. Piana koloru ecru, wysoka, sycząca, opadająca do niskiej warstwy. Aromat pieczonej skrki od chleba, przyprawy, zioła, owoce. W smaku słodycz z wyraźnymi nutami kwaśnymi, owocowymi. Brzoskwinie, winogrona, morele, przypominające białe wino. Nasycenie wysokie, szampańskie, trochę przeszkadza w odbiorze, lecz zachęca do powolnego sączenia piwa.Goryczka zauważalna, krtka, niezalegająca. Bardzo ciekawe piwo, wyraźnie odrżniające się od innych świątecznych piw.

NikkTwist (2899) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Draft at Khyber Pass. Medium dark russet brown pour with just a thin beige ring. No lace. Good mouthfeel. Light brown sugar caramels. Golden plums. Cassia. Vanillin. Milk chocolate. Mostly malty with some light spices and a touch tart. Feels pleasantly unassuming for a Christmas brew. Simple but well made.

mathieuc (3594) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
BBE 2014. Pours a pretty clear reddish brown with a medium beige head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of spices, caramel, oxidized alcohol. Taste is of caramel, madeira, demerara, spices. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and alcohol is now pretty well integrated. Almost stereotypical belgianness. Really good!
