Advent Beer Calendar 2016: Day 22: De Dolle Stille Nacht

Today’s Advent calendar beer comes to us from Brouwerij De Dolle in Belgium and their beer inspired by the Christmas carol “Silent Night”: Stille Nacht, a very strong (12%) golden pale ale in the Belgian holiday tradition. They say:

Stille Nacht (Silent Night) is a prestige beer from De Dolle Brouwers, brewed for Christmas. It has a very potent beer (12% alc/vol). It has been boiling for many hours, brewed with pale malt with white candy sugar in the kettle. The Nugget hops 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 hasn’t decreased the quality of this beer. Keep some samples at 10°C and mark the year on the cap with an alcohol marker. Cheers!!

This is a perfect beer to sip and listen to classic Christmas carols with snow falling outside. Enjoy!
