Bottle thanks to Nick. Pours a cloudy orange with small off white head. The aroma is candy sugar, caramel, yeast, tannic grape. Medium mouth with nice tannic notes, grape, yeast, caramel. Very good.

Pours dark golden, slightly viscosy with no head. Some lacing and retention on the sides. Nose is full on cognac, caramel, slight booze, round esters, banana, almond liquor. Mouth explosion of flavours perfectly in balance with the nose. Malty and bread at first, acidic hints on the sides of the tongue, long lasting aftertaste of tangy citrus with honey, stomach warming booze, soft mouthfeel. Complex and massive barrel-aged ale.

From notes. Tasted on 3/16/13 from a 750mL bottle at our epic Bottleworks tasting with Curtis, Jedi, and crews from Knoxville and Nashville. Pours clear amber/orange with a thin white head that leaves thin, bubbly lace. The nose is very unique, sour lemon peel, touch of malty balsamic, candied orange peel, a touch of bread, really great. The flavor is a bit more brown sugar malt forward with the sour lemon and white balsamic notes on the back of the palate, and very nice candied orange zest. The body is full with light carbonation and a long, nicely sour and touch of malt finish.

From a 75 cl bottle shared at home post Christmas. Pours a clear deep copper with an ecru head. Aroma of tart apple and caramel. Flavors of apricot and tart white grapes. Superb. Has aged well.

Renobob (1052) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 23, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl à la brasserie De Dolle avec Chris le brasseur. Une tuerie absolue, encore meilleure que la Stille Nacht classique, avec un côté boisé et vanillé à souhait. La meilleure bière que j'aie jamais bue. Sublime !

Karyots (23) - BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2014
At the Kirstbierfestival. Hazy with little head. Smell of plums, wine ( spoilt wine?). Taste with overtone of wine - but somewhere the recipe goes wrong. Like wine that is a bit spoilt or plums that have got rotten. Not sure why - but expected something much smoother. But still a very good beer to enjoy.

freretoc (982) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 19, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl très très bien accompagné. Couleur ambrée rosée, belle mousse bien compacte et effervescence moyenne. Au nez on sent la vanille et le sucre vanillé. En bouche belle attaque sur le tonneau avec une acidité juste équilibrée à la perfection et une pointe de vanille qui arrive grâce au tonneau de Pommerol. Sucre bien équilibré et incroyable finish sur la stille nacht. Incroyablement bon !

hirigalzkar (2404) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle (thanks Finol!). Notes of strawberries, chocolate, and sour cherries in aroma. Taste is fruity, sour, earthy and vinous. Notes butter, cookies, raisin. Some warming alcohol in the end. A bit dry. Overall: super complex and impressive, altough not as drinkable as the original version of Stille Nacht.

finol (2301) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle from a trade. Aroma of saffron and wine. Tastes like a heavy barly wine with raisins and a tart taste of red wine barrels.
