December 29, 2015. Bottle, received in a trade with tderoeck, thanks!
Hazy amber with small white head. Aroma is malty and vinous with candi sugar, grape skins, some earthy oak notes, Taste is light sweet, light sour and vinous. Finish is light dry woody and vinous, grape skins, warming alcohol, hay. Medium bodied, soft to light carbonation.
Completely different from regular 2010 which was more straightforward sweetness and no sour notes.

RexTalionis (3424) - FINLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Pours copper in color with a small head. Sweet fruity, light wooden notes, some dark ripe fruityness and toffee with hints of funkyness in aroma. Really soft and smooth. Brown sugary sweetness, oven baked apple with hints of vanilla on the side. Vinous notes and toffee later on. Slightly warming finish. Delicious.

Fles 75 cl. gekocht via biergenot.be, tijdens kerstavond 2015, uitgeschonken in een Oerbier glas van De Dolle Brouwers. Eerst grote kroonkurk eraf, daarna zorgvuldig de natuur kurk met een kurkentrekker verwijderd. Schuim komt iets omhoog maar blijft in de fles. Kleur is diep koperachtig en troebel met een gelige schuimkraag, die zich vrij snel weer terugtrekt tot een fijne ring. Aroma is overweldigend houtig en vineus. Nog nooit eerder een bier geproefd waar de barrel notities zo overduidelijk naar voren komen. Aroma's van: eikenhout, rode wijn, bierkelder, tawny port, sherry, aarde, mos, tabak en leer. De aardse en houtige aroma's worden verder aangevuld met een fruitigheid van perziken, kersen en romig en frisse zurigheid als in yoghurt. De fantastische complexiteit gaat verder in het smaakpallet met een prikkelende combinatie van zoetheid, zuurheid, bitterheid en umami esters. De verfijning en balans van deze smaken is ongelofelijk goed, met een totaal verborgen alcohol percentage van 12%. Naarmate het bier verder opwarmt nemen verwarmende rode wijn accenten toe, en lijkt het ook zoeter te worden. De carroussel van smaken is zeer bijzonder, maar de eikenhout en rode wijntonen blijven de boventoon voeren. Ook het zurig fruitige combineert perfect met de zoetheid van de kandijsuiker. De grotere floaties die je altijd in de reguliere Stille Nacht ziet, vind ik niet terug. De Stille Nacht Reserva is een duur bier, maar stond zeer hoog op mijn lijst van bijzondere bieren die ik graag wilde proeven en beoordelen. Wat mij betreft absoluut het geld waard, super complex met een briljant aroma, een meesterwerk in bier van de Dolle Brouwers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a slightly hazy, burnt golden orange color with a small bubbly head that immediately settles into a thin, lasting ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind. Looks a bit under carbonated. Strong tannins in the aroma with lots of oak and vinous fruit but the barrel character is nicely integrated into the base beer. Prominent dry, toasted oak but it doesn’t smell burnt or have much of a toothpick presence. Vinous with strong juicy red wine notes. Barrel character is really nice but doesn’t overpower the notes of the base beer. There’s still some sweet malt, peppery spice, booze and dark fruit esters. Medium body with slight oxidization but it doesn’t interfere or hinder the flavors. Tight carbonation along with zesty, peppery spices and a really strong barrel presence. Oak and wine dominate flavor but they are still decently integrated into the flavors of the regular version. Really nice dry oak flavor but not charred, overly dry or acrid. Strong vinous red wine flavor that lingers throughout with lots of vinous grape, fig, cherry juice and currant. There’s also some peppery spice and luscious dark fruit from belgian yeast. I’m also picking up some pale malt, bread, cherry, plum and some faint honey. The red wine/barrel notes add great flavor but slightly overpowers what I enjoy about the base beer. The high ABV is excellently masked with subtle heat in the finish but I never would have guessed it was 12%. Really nice, especially if you like Bordeaux/dry reds but this beer isn’t very similar to regular SNR.

@ Kulminator 15-10-31: Mycket syrlig doft. Smaken är syrlig och fyllig med tydelig fatton. Riktig gott.

Bottle at Kulminator. A bit hazy amber with a small head. A nice one with malt, light vinegar, fruit and some yeast. An expensive but tasty one.
