Received as a gift set with two other St. Feuillien’s brewfrom a non beer geek friend. Thanks Dave! Poured from bottle. Color was basic murky brown with cream colored head. Aroma was of cinnamon and malts. Taste was carmalized pears. Lots of malt and a slightly bitter finish. Something was just slightly off on this one. Cant put my finger on it.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is really beautiful, the color of dark ruby with a big, rocky head. Aroma has strong dark fruitiness, sweet maltiness and spiciness; plum, pear, some caramel. Taste is medium to heavy sweet; maltiness and fruitiness are rich with Belgian yeast adding spicy elements. Hoppiness is mild to moderate, balancing a bit. Dried fruitiness and spices feature most. Spiciness is moderate, not over-the-top. Palate is medium to full bodied, quite smooth despite the carbonation being a bit lively. Nice sweet and attractive Christmas beer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!
