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.

The beer looks good, and pretty much like a good Christmas beer should. The beer is dark. The color of the brew is a beautiful ruby red/brown. The beer sure has some cloudiness. This is not weird, since it’s yeasted in the bottle. On top of the beer a thick rough layer of slightly brownish foam is formed, that collapses rather quickly, leaving a thin drape. The smell of the beer is nice. It’s a little bit familiar. I smell some nice sweet malts, a slight toasty bitterness, some bitter and fresh hops and delicious aroma’s of herbs and liquorice. The smell is very dark and warming, both sweet and bitter. I also smell some anise. The herbs give the smell a nice kick, making the smell more interesting. The taste of the beer also is good. It is quite bitter for a Belgian Strong Ale. The bitterness comes mainly from some of the herbs. I taste liquorice and anise. The bitterness is balanced by a nice malty sweetness. Bitters and sweets are in perfect harmony. The herbs give the taste a nice kick. The herbal kick is tasted long after the beer is finished. The bitter and slightly sweet aroma’s fulfil the long finish. It is like you have been eating sweet licorices. The beer has a nice full body with an average carbonation. The beer is good and perfectly suitable for the cold, dark winter evenings around Christmas.

DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2002
Red-brown-copper hue. Lots of caramell and cotton candy or merengue in the nose. Some tea. The taste is fruity and has that merengue taste. A hint of licorice toffee. Somewhat bitter finish. An ace season ale.

Sjohnh (850) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Dark reddy brown body with a frothy tan head - very lively at first. Aroma of malt, brown sugar and sherry trifle. Good body, though no more than medium. Flavours include cherry, mulled wine, sugar and darker malts. Good, bit too sweet maybe.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - FEB 25, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2014 Bottiglia 2012: Limpido color ambrato con riflessi rubino in controluce, massiccio cappello di soffice schiuma beige molto persistente. Aroma intenso e dolce con immeditati sentori di frutta matura e sciroppata ed in un secondo momento emergono sentori di zucchero caramellato e cannella; sembra di annusare una crostata casereccia. Gusto dolce, rotondo, fruttato e caramellato con note di toffee e spezie molto intense, sul finale compaiono liquirizia, scorza di agrumi ed un pizzico di luppolo. Corpo medio-abbondante, effervescenza gentile, struttura vellutata e setosa. Ottima birra natalizia, 100% belga, dolce ma non stucchevole e con un pizzico di personalità!
