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!!

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 En rigtig god juleøl. Smagen er meget syrlig og samtidig en smule sødlig, mens eftersmagen er frisk og syrlig. Luner en smule i halsen efterfølgende.

4.4
biilz (311) - SPAIN - DEC 31, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 Аромат очень фруктовый и цитрусовый. Цвет глубокий и красивый как у хороший ипы. Пиво сильно пенится. На вкус чувствуются спелые фрукты; Ананасы,персики, корка апельсина и мандирина. Также ощущается кориандр. При это напиток весьма крепок. Послевкусие длительное, но при глотке иногда можно почувствовать алкоголь. В целом один из лучших Бельгийских элей что я пил.

4.2
