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.

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.
