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!!

Bamsen78 (7582) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2021
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2021 Draught @ SKAAL Sønderborg. Pours hazy dark blonde with airy white head. Clear aroma of fruit and malt, with vinous notes and spicy hints. Sweetish, malty and fruity onset, giving way to dusty, hoppy and spicy notes, which are themselves replaced by dry, vinous touches. Dusty, spicy and malty aftertaste with acidic hints. Warming alcohol presence. Fantastic. Complex, tasty, potent and well-balanced. A journey inside the mouth.

DraftPupil66 (411) - - OCT 4, 2021
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2021 33cl bottle from Pauwels drink store in Courtrai, Belgium drinking 5/10/2021 brewed in 2019** as it says on the cap. Pours a hazy dark golden with thin creamy white foam on top and good lacing. Aroma of belgian yeast, dried fruits, candi sugar, spices, caramel, dates, raisins. Taste is quite complex and sweet enough with malty, spiced and fruity notes, orange, ripe fruits, caramel, dried fruits, yeast, raisins, candi sugar, a strong booziness from the high 12% abv that seals everything up wonderfully. Warming, smooth and delicious, with a sweet warm finish. Full bodied, slick oily texture, sticky, soft carbonation. Simply warming and delicious belgian, outstanding.
