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!!

Net een flesje uit 2014 opengemaakt. Schuim bleef maar komen. Ruikt fruitig maar ook iets te sterk naar alcohol. In de smaak merk je eigenlijk hetzelfde. Wordt na een paar slokken wel lekkerder.

Fosca. Aroma Dola, notes afruitades. En Boca destaca el malt per sobre de tot amb notes dalcohol lleugerament marcades. Cos Alt. Cervesa equilibrada, clida, a lespera de podeer tastar la danys anteriors per veure si el punt alcohlic queda ms integrat.

Ritzn (757) - Bavaria, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2016
2014 Hazy golden with little white head. Aroma is cherry pips, some chocolate, fruity hops, yeasts, juicy. Taste is spicy fruits, sweet and sour. Floury mouthfeel, slight chalky and fresh citrussy. I like this one best. Nice! 2015 Big head. Green stuff in the aroma, taste is more phenolic. 2016 little head. Sweet and phenolic, fresher and a little unripe.

Vells (1674) - Rga, Latvija, LATVIA - DEC 13, 2016
Very nice Belgian strong, malty cocktail, some even honeyish touch, candy, some ripe fruitiness, light yeast impact. Mostly sweet with light bitterness, bit undercarbonated for my like, but very nice overall anyways

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Po roku-dwch w piwnicy przeobraża się w totalnie wybitne, niesamowite Belgian Strong Golden Ale. Wersja 2005 totalnie mnie zniszczyła.

vinivini (1570) - BELARUS - NOV 23, 2016
Honey yellow, hazy. Nice white perfectly lacing head. The aroma is surprisingly funky, lots of sourish fruit, vinous, candy in measure. Full body. The flavour is very Belgian. The funky yeast a perfect accent for malty base. Spicy, fruity. Light bitterness. Great.

ardeo (268) - Flmalle, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2016
Bottle at home. Couleur un peu urine, grosses bulles et mousse quasi inexistante dans la minute suivante. Nez fruit (abricot, pche, autre) et pic, levures et houblon. Bouche : frache, "pleine", un peu sucre, lgrement piquante, lgre amertume mais idale pour le concours "Quelles sont ces bonnes pices ?" Je reprendrai de cette bire complexe mais attention de ne pas dpasser la dose si vous voulez passer une Stille Nacht.

[email protected] Brown haze. Small head. Malty caramel. Some mushrooms. Sweet bitter dry. Alcoholic but well hidden. Portwine. Complex. Let this one develop like wine for years. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Echon (427) - rhus, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2016
Amber. Nice aroma and very rich flavour, with fruity notes, phenolic spice and malt. Sweet, assertive, and slightly pungent taste with some alcohol. Full body. Overall, a great belgian strong ale. Very tasty and somewhat balanced, despite the sweetness. This sample has aged for a year so the booziness has mellowed a bit.

Ottima birra. Dal colore biondo oro antico, quasi ambrato e dalla schiuma bianca e decisamente persistente. Sentori speziati molto forti, quasi pungenti, accompagnati da un buonissimo fruttato e un po di caramello, nonch un leggerissimo tocco di liquoroso. Molto consigliata!
