Sweet and sugary nose, light funk and acidity. Taste is cotton candy, light fruit, rather bland, moderately sweet, lightly sour, some oxidation. Very disappointing.

Bottle share at Kenny’s 20K, many thanks to Matteo for this one. As ’De Dolle Stille Nacht Reserva 2010’. Vibrant orange, hazy, lightly sparkling, small ring of white head. Aroma is a little plasticky, airy malts, soured fruits, maybe some oxidation. Body is light, tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is tangy and sour, red wine, tannnic, tart and woody. Is more sour and red wine-forward than the 2000 Reserva. Both are very tasty beers.

75cl bottle shared at Kenny’s 20K celebrations @Chriso’s, thanks to me. Incidentally, this is also my 5K rate! It pours a hazed light amber color with small white head. Aroma is sweet bold lightly oxidised with notes of tangy orange peel raisins rum an red berries. Taste is tangy and quite acidic with notes I lemon juice and orange peel, then some more sweetness from raisins rum and red berries. Closes quite sharp acidic and palate cleansing. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, really good and complex

hackobock (2754) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2015
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.

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.

Batavi (264) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2015
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
