4 Stars, De Dolle Brouwers, Strong Ale

Stille Nacht by De Dolle Brouwers

Poured a murky apricot with almost no apparent carbonation. Aromas of malt, caramel, fruit and some sweetness.  Full bodied, smooth mouthfeel. Loads of complex flavor; sweet fruit (apple, banana, tropical) flavors are at the front, good alcohol punch, faintly herbal, some yeasty spiciness, lightly bitter with fruit and malt as a long lasting finish. Great sipping beer, which is probably a good idea since it weighs in at a hefty 12% ABV.

4.5 Stars.
