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!!

Jakeman_DK (56) - Copenhagen V, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2019 Light brown colour, very thin head, clear aromas of toffee, caramel, aged spirits and plum, quite flat beer, tastes very plummy or raisins plus alcohol, relatively simple stille nacht, which might have lost a bit during aging (2007 year tastes in December 2019).

DraftWhisperer85 (320) - Sint-truiden, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2019 een schitterende klassieker, bedoeld als kerstbier, amberkleurig en niet mier zoet, mooi gebalanceerd, krachtig, fruitige hoparoma's

MasDen (1215) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 17, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2019 Version of 1987. Berry aroma, overripe cherry prevails. Dark scarlet, transparent with a slight white foam. The taste of the berries is very rich, a little mold in the aftertaste. The body is medium, carbonation is average.

ozorgnax (100) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 28, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2019 330ml bottle from belgiuminabox.com. Pours cloudy orange-yellow with a big white head. Aromas of alcohol, caramel, maybe some apple. Taste is sweet at the start and bitter at the finish, full bodied and a bit dry. Best enjoyed after a hearty meal I feel.

mmbuddha (8) - - SEP 25, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2019 A lovely, simple Christmas beer, though a bit overrated I feel. It’s simplicity is its strength, though it is over-sweet (and I love candy-sugared Belgian ales, and De Dolle, by-the-by). Sweet fruit pudding flavours abound, the alcohol (high at 12%) is almost insanely masked, making it a bit of a dangerous but very jolly elixir. It gives the impression of being a sort of sweet but delicious concoction someone might have cooked up on the hob for Christmas – there’s handmade craft beers, and then there’s De Dolle. Maybe I’m talking myself round to this beer, but I do feel its less impressive than the rest of their range. But if you don’t mind a sugary beer, and feel like something cheering, it does hit the spot.

coil (511) - Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2019 330ml bottle from Utobeer, Borough Market, London. Cloudy amber colour with white head. Big sweet malt, Belgian yeast, big sweet stone fruit, peach, apricot, spices, orange peel, black pepper, overripe stone fruit, mandarin, candi sugar, light sweet green apple, light overripe apple, light sour, light hop finish. Warming alcohol but super drinkable for 12%. Probably one of the better easily available Belgian strong golden ales out there, v nice.

colui72 (1858) - HONG KONG - JUL 22, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2019 Best gift! Pours hazy amber, large fluffy cream head with gorgeous lacing. Aroma of bread, sweet malts, floral and fruity. Tastes sweet, yeasty, fruity, ripe fruits, raisins, boozy, peppery, spices feel. Smooth and creamy, very well balanced and an absolute delight! Excellent all around!

KevinReddirt (613) - Midland, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2019 My first venture with De Dolle, I welcome the opportunity. Stille Nacht appears to be well received, I will give it a try. The 11.2 oz bottle is opened and poured into my Teku glass, another first. I am greeted by a gold-yellow-orange body that has a triumphant head of pure white bubbles, good lacing material. The scent, nice, peach, yellow raisin and field. A taste now, wow, surprisingly good, only because I lean towards the darker Belgians. Apricot, nectarine, yeast, a bit of grain, sweet apple, a small spiciness. Substantial, full bodied. I heartily approve. Success on all levels.

djoeye (8041) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 29, 2019
UPDATED: APR 29, 2019 Aroma; big fruit bowl, some bananas, loaded malts, yeast, solid meadow scents, very inviting. Look; off white head on near clear pale golden body. Taste; fruits, malt, banana, yeast, meadow, grapes, wood wine, and finishes lingering balanced dry'ish. Feel; strong body, somewhat dry, ok co². Overall; alcohol well covered, very tasty.

TychoJames (2615) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2019
UPDATED: APR 20, 2019 Flaska belgiuminabox.com. Disig gul/brun/orange vätska. Doft av hö, äpplemos, aprikos och örter. Likande i smak. Citrus, jäst, aprikos, örter och lite alkohol. Spritsig och tung i positiv bemärkelse.
