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.

SDalkoholic (2371) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 30, 2006
750mL bottle: An incrddible spicy Blegian yeast is immediaetly detected in the aroma with additions of toffee malt. Stong brown tint with a firm foaming of head. Nice delivery of spice in thew flavor and noticeable alcohol.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Rich mahogany pour with amber highlights, rocky head with excellent retention and sporadic chunky lacing. Sweet malts, alcohol and vinegar dominate the musty aroma, with subtle hints of cola, licorice, caramel, coriander, fresh baked all grain breads. Full bodied and caressing the palate with oils and very dense malty flavors. Tastes of caramels, toffee, rich sweet malt, brown sugar, orange/coriander and black licorice. Finish respectable in length, very tasty but altogether too similar to me to many other Belgian winter beers that are more enjoyable to drink.

BeerBiker (1414) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2006
VINTAGE 2004. Two years old. More fullbodied if you can imagine that. The alcoholic taste can you still find, but its more friendly.
