COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stille Nacht (Silent Night) is a prestige beer from De Dolle Brouwers brewed for Christmas. It has the highest density of any Belgian beer (27°Pl), has been boiling for 5 hours, brewed with pale malt with white candi sugar in the kettle. The Nugget hops and dry hopping gives an extra bitterness to balance the extreme sweetness due to the density. The taste triangle is completed with some acidity of the fermentation. It is a very interesting beer to age. We have samples of every bottling we have done so far and aging does not mean decreasing quality with this beer. Keep some samples at 10°C and mark the year on the cap with an alcohol marker. Cheers!!

Bottle at home (2013). Pours hazy amber with a fast fading white head. Sweet, fruity, flowery, aroma with yeast and alcohol. Sweet, fruity, taste, some alcohol, and a bitter finish. Nice thick feel, but a bit harsh still. Would probably really like this when aged.

Amber coloured beer. Sweet aroma with something of bubblegum. Taste is sweet. Raisins, tropical fruit, honey but also because of the high alcohol content what liqueur-like.

Pours a hazy amber colour with a frothy white head. Complex aroma of exotic fruits, apricot, grapefruit, banana, yeast, spices, hops, some alcohol. Flavour is exotic fruit sweetness, yeasty, some alcohol warming. Modest bitter, spicy aftertaste. Very interesting and enjoyable brew!

Bière ambrée avec un beau col épais qui développe des senteurs de fruits confits, de sirop de malt et d’esters alcooliques. En bouche, la gorgée est dense avec un profil sirupeux moyen à la saveur de pain d’épices avec un arrière goût légèrement suret (sucre fermenticide?) et un relent de levure. La finale amérisée est minérale et florale assez longue avec une touche de fruitée (levure + sucre) faisant penser à la banane et la mangue. C’est une ambrée très savoureuse légèrement surette bien charpentée en alcool et en malt aromatique .

psilosophy (480) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - JAN 18, 2014
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur légèrement ambrée, trouble, mousse assez faible, peu de tenue. Arômes fruités de pêches, abricots, ananas, une touche de bonbon, un alcool bien présent mais pas rédhibitoire et une pointe de houblon en toute fin de bouche. Très savoureuse, juste la texture qui manque un poil de peps à mon goût. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

StilleStorm (639) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2014
DAA; My No. 300. Bottle from 2012. Pours hazy orange with a fading off-white head. Nose fills with yeast, sour, fruits, sweets, spice and alcohol. Taste adds sweet, malt and loads of fruitiness of all kinds. Vinious, warming and complex. Full body, texture is sticky and the carbonation is soft. Lasting fruity and spicy finish. Enjoyable indeed.

BOTTLE 33CL. Look: deep amber and cloudy with an small off-white frothy head with poor retention. Aroma: dried fruit, raisins, rich malty and grainy, alcohol. Taste: dried fruit, raisins, strong phenolic bitterness, the alcohol is a bit over the top.
