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.

750 ml bottle. Copper red body with a dense white head. Aroma is dominated by a warming alcohol feeling together with candy sugar. Also some hint of fruit in the background here. Flavor is sweet malt, candy sugar, citrus and herbs. A full bodied beer with a complex taste of Christmas.

A joyful surprise. Looks great and has a great chocolaty sugary taste, without being too overpowering

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2007
As soon as I popped the cork on the 750 ml bottle, I could smell this wonderful caramel malt aroma. Further inspection led to a sweet yeasty bread and some brown sugar. The beer is the red/brown color of strong tea, slightly hazed, and topped by an impressive head of creamy tan foam. Good head retention and lacing. One delicious brew - with caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and fig. There is a hop bitterness for balance that is not detected in the flavor until the finish - where it is a bit spicy with a mild citrus character. Toffee, black tea, leather, spice, bread dough, and alcohol linger in the aftertaste. Medium to full body, with gentle but very full carbonation.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Pours cola-like with a hazy, burgandy color; head is somewhat small, fizzy, and pale tan in color woth minimal nice lacing and a small head that sticks around, creamy-like. Intriguing nose, cola, rum soaked prune, sweet caramel, very bread like qualities, and a zesty fruit note that I can’t put a finger on. Flavor is like the nose would have suggested; still cola-like, very toasted bread, almost nutty, prune still there, light brown sugar, and the zest (I’ve seen coriander in other notes, that could be what I am tasting?). Palate is lively, medium-full, round and a little oily. Finish is unexpected, drying out and lingering with burnt bread and anise; mild bitterness is also noted. Nice winter Belgian, very palatable and nice to enjoy the whole bottle, without a struggle. Not something I would want all the tiime but certainly worthy of a try for the Christmas season.

Bottle. Chestnut coloured with a thick beige head. Very pleasant and unsual fruity aroma, something of rootbeer smell about it, but in a good way. Smooth and softly carbonated and quite light bodied. taste of caramel and spices, malts and dark fruits. Some warming alcohol in the finish. Nice.
