Pours a dark brownish amber in the Leffe chalice. An attractive foam Interesting rusty, malty smell. Pleasant sudsy mouthfeel.

A candy flavor, though not all that sweet. Lots of warm malt, slightly roasted. A different sort of flavor, though in the Belgian strong fruity tradition. I keep tasting carrots and yams. Though there is no hint of hoppy aromas, it has some bitterness. Less of the typical Belgian dry yeasty taste. A pineapple flavor, but tart. Some other mystery fruit and a hint of pecans and butter.

More pleasant and complex as it warms. From the 33 cl stubby bottle brought back from Belgium in October.

1pt. 9.4 oz [750ml] cage and corked brown bottle

St. Feuillien Cuvée De Noël Ale filled my snifter with a lightly cloudy dark russet brown that formed a bubbly tan 1-finger tan head and left behind spotty lacing. The nose is sweet, dominated by dark fruits and malts, with of brown sugar. The taste matches the nose with flavors of; caramel, toffee, raisins and some nuttiness added. No real bitterness detected. The mouth feel is light-medium [on the lighter side for the style], smooth, with a nice building alcohol warming as the ale is consumed.

Overall, a nice Belgian Strong Dark Ale that is very drinkable. Cuvee De Noel is a good holiday ale or for that matter anytime. Recommend if you like the style.

Review from 8/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a dark orange with a thick white head and lacing. Spicy dark fruit aroma. Nice medium to heavy body, dark fruits, sweet malt and Belgian and holiday spices. Sweet malt, spice finish with a hint of bitterness. A nice holiday ale that I will try again.

Pours a clean orange-ish to amber color with an off white head. In the aroma, quite sweet, with notes of caramel and spice. In the taste, sticky sweet caramel, and a cinnamon like spice. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry and sticky sweet cinnamon like spice. A bit sweet, but a nice presnce of cinnamon spice.

A: Pours a dark reddish brown with a tan head and large bits of yeast floating around.

S: Boozy, bready aroma with candied fruit notes.

T: Heavy sweet malt flavor dominates with a strong alcohol punch. The same candied fruits from the aroma show up here. Thick almost chewy mouthfeel.

O: This is a nice holiday treat, a couple will definitely put you in the holiday spirit.
