Bottle. Brown with a large light brown head, good lacings. Aroma heavy malty (sweet brown fruits, roasted, brown sugar, spices), light hoppy and yeasty. Flavor heavy sweet, light to moderate bitter, spicy. Medium to full body, creamy, soft carbonated. The strength is not felt. A very good Christmas ale.

75 cL bottle. Pours brown with light brown and creamy head. Fruity and caramel smell with alcohol elements. Sweet taste with aroma hops that gives taste of fruit together with malts that provides darker roasted like notes. Caramel taste too. Round and well balanced into the aftertaste. Very drinkable beer. Well suited for the wide audience as a good belgian x-mas beer experience. Ungstrup (37557) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2002
A very dark amber beer with an OK head - very sparkeling. It has a very fruity aroma - as belgium ales most often have. The taste is very powerful, nice sweet and prickling - with no hints of the alcohol content. Definately a very nice ale. joergen (28102) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2005

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2010 Bottled. Hazy dark nutbrown colour with small beige head. Aroma of sweet plum and some hops. Flavour is sweet alcohol with plummy hints and some toffee. omhper (25093) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2002
Mahogany coloured. Toffee aroma. Sweet initially, fruity and butterscotchy, but bitterish and somewhat dryish finish. Complex and tasty, but IMO not really as good as their tripel. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Well, this may be licensed away to Affligem these days, but my version was from Brasserie Friart in Le Roeulx - the original home of the St. Feuillien range. Dark brown, very hazy - lots of impurities here. All the typical notes of sweet, dried fruits, roasted malts and candy sugar - with some spices. A very full-bodied, potent beer - almost the quintessence of a Christmas beer. Lovely. 200398 madmitch76 (24788) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2009
12th June 2008. Sour molasses tinged malt with a fruity undertone. Finishes with a Belgian candy sugar dryness.

Golden brown w/ thick white head. Caramel aroma. Medium mouth. VERY caramel taste with light hops, so a bit more bitter (in a nice way!) than most Christmas ales.
