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 (27Pl), 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 10C and mark the year on the cap with an alcohol marker. Cheers!!

Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with a slight white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and orange; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Amazingly sweet Belgian beer with a lot of orange and even some hops at the end. Really refreshing and damn tasty. Great aroma appearance and palate as well.

Pite na Urusie. Pachnie przyprawami, owocami, lekko bananem i rodzynkami. W smaku słodko, banan rodzynki, wchodzi jak woda, ale smak nie powala.

glacier (270) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 23, 2017
Kolor złoty, mętny. Pływają farfocle. Piana bardzo intensywna, gęsta, wolno opada. Wysycenie bardzo duże. Zapach trochę owocowy, winny, ziemisty, średnio intensywny. Smak przyprawowy, lekko ziemisty, troszkę owocowy. Piwo bardzo mocne, ale alkohol nieźle ukryty, a ma aż 12%. Uderza do głowy. Piwo degustacyjne.

The_Osprey (7881) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
February 2017 - 330ml bottle at home in Richmond as De Dolle Stille Nacht, 2012 vintage, 12%. Pours a clear dark orange, highly sparkling, foamy beige head. Aroma is sherry and toffee, tulip floral vibes. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is sugary and very sweet, sherry and red berries, some port wine in the finish. Sweetness is just about kept in check by a soft woody bitterness. I can see why the barrel aged versions of this work so well - its very rich and robust. I like it quite a lot but its quite one dimensional. (3.7)
