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.

I acquired a bomber of this brew at Vladimer’s in Philadelphia. It poured a medium brown body with a decent head. The taste was malty, spiced, caramel, and chocolate. This beer was quite good.

Tap @ Publick House, Brookline, MA. Pours a deep brown color with a generous brown head. Aroma is spicy up front with slight chocolate, caramel, and malt characteristics as well. The spices dominate the taste as well, though in a delicate way. The aftertaste sweetens a bit, with hints of alcohol and roasted malt. A wonderful winter beer.

Jerre (3857) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2007
Bottle, 33 cl. at home. Very dark brown color with a thick light brown head. Aroma yeast, caramel malts with a bit spices and alcohol. Medium body. Taste the first thing are spices, with caramel, warm alcoholic finish. Dry, and spicy aftertaste. Good winter brew.

after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Draft at Brouwer’s. Pours a deep murky and grainy amber with brown surges. Tall, thick, sudsy tan head. Big figgy nose with not too awfully much else happening there, though you can tell the body and the flavor profile promise much more. Tingly carb in a thick, velvety body with forward fruit flavors: figs, dark pitted tree fruit, a light red apple note. Plenty of chocolate and caramel malt notes, too, in a heavy grainy body with a lingering, fruity finish. This is just amazing and delicious stuff. Love to get it on draft all the time if I could.

MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2007
(33cl bottle, best before Oct. 2007, thanks Edo !) Hazy, reddish brown coloured hue with a big, moderately lacing beige foamy head. Sweet, dark malty and roasted aroma, slightly vinous with caramel, anis, chocolate and a touch of alcohol. Sweet flavour, slightly sugary with a balancing bitterness, full bodied with a soft carbonation. Dark and roasty malty taste with caramel and liquorice and a well-embedded fruit-character (raisins); sweet and slightly bitter, malt-accented, spicy and lingering finish with a non-disturbing alcohol presence. Heart-warming stuff.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours bornze/brown with a decent size light tan head. Aroma of spices, dark fruit, caramel, and toffee. The flavor is smooth, caramel, spices, toffee, fruit. Lively carbonation. Good brew.

3.5
Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2007
(Big, big bottle) Pours brown with some red hints. Sand coloured head. Fruity aroma with some spicy hints of anise, cardamom, cinnamon and clove. Very sweet with notes of dried apricots, banana candy, caramel and marzipan. Some tones of citrus in the background with orange peel as the most notable. Maybe some flowers. Spicy, light fruity flavour well notable marzipan and caramel sweetness. Spiciness flavour wise brings anise and cardamom. Fluffy, velvety and full mouthfeel but a bit to sweet. Lingering aftertaste with sweet and spicy notes. Medium to full body.

The Dan Journal #15. 750ml Bottle. Tasted May 2006. Hazy and light brown. Looks murky. Off-white head. Fruity esters in the nose. Cherries and cinnamon. Plums and caramel. Nice fruit cake notes. Good holiday offering.

Viper666 (3290) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2007
Bouteille, dégustée chez Bières & Compagnie à Montréal. De couleur brune aux reflets rouges et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (prunes, léger de raisins aux notes vineuses), malté de caramel doux avec des notes de sucre bonbon et de sucre brun, moyennement épicé (léger de clou de girofle, notes de muscade et de poivre) et léger d’alcool doux. Moyenne-ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-fort et une texture légèrement crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées (prunes, léger de raisins vineux, notes de cerises) et d’épices (clou de girofle, notes de muscade et de coriandre) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût malté de caramel doux, léger de sucre bonbon et avec des notes de sucre brun et de toffee puis en finale, l’on retrouve un goût légèrement amer d’alcool doux aux notes réchauffantes avec des notes de houblon floral et de levures épicées (notes de poivre). Post-goût moyen-long, moyen-léger amer d’alcool doux, léger de levures et de houblon floral ainsi qu’une légère aigreur fruitée (moût de prunes et de raisins).

Beautiful copper color, lasting head. Tiny particles floating in a thick body. Fruity, malty alcoholic tart aroma. Bit spicy fruity flavor. Bit dry, alcoholic down the throat.
