4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Light Amber with a light haze, white head that leaves a long lasting ring. White grapes and apple, quite some champagne and cider notes, light musty and herbal. Big sweetness with marzipan, canned peach, cake, apricot pie, light spices. Mainly sweet going into light fruity tartness and has a light bitter finish. Full bodied with full carbonation. Great stuff.

20/02/2015 @ home - 33cl bottle from de Hopduvel.
Orange like colour with off white head. Aroma and taste : fruity, sweet, boozy, warming, creamy mouthfeel. Just a bit too much alcohol on this one, maybe still to young, but however already a very nice beer.

330 ml Bottle, 2012 vintage. Golden color with some floating yeast particles. Aroma is dried fruit, pale malts, candy sugar and some light spice. Large Belgian yeast flavor that shows the same exact flavors as the nose. Nice body with a sweet finish. I enjoyed this as much as the Reserva 2010 I had over a year ago. I didn’t want to age it any farther and it was a great drink.

Aroma of apple and champagne. Mouth under attacks by its 12 ABV. A tad soapy. Goes down the throat like a spirit. Abundant dregs.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2005 vintage bottle shared thanks to Deanso. Had numerous vintages many times but never actual rated it, I’ll rate on a vintage as that’s the best way to have Stille Nacht. Pours hazy murky golden brown with a ring off white head. Aroma of caramel, porty aspects, toffee, light dank and moldy, really showing the age but in a way that works so well with this beer. Flavor is heavy sweet, booze from the fresh version is gone. Full bodied with very soft carbonation.
