Served in a tulip glass

Appearance: Dark golden brown/ hazy color little head retention which was concerning at first...
Nose: The nose displays a nice burnt caramel/ malt flavor with a subtle hint of ethanol and that Belgium flare
Taste: Appropriate carbonation. Thick, creamy, and slightly sweet (like a thicker version of a hardy brown ale) with subtle earthy hops at the end that play with the sweetness. I was expecting more of an ethanol flavor because of the high ABV, but was surprised to find it balanced and hidden.

What a beautiful Belgium beer!

Let me preface this by saying that I am reviewing a 3 yr aged bottle in particular. In general, I've always regarded Stille Nacht as a good example of a Belgian beer but never one of my favorites. This weekend my friend broke out a bottle that he had aged in his cellar for 3 yrs. It did get much better with age. It was noticeably sweeter then usual. I'm not usualy a fan of beer that is too sweet but with the probable increase in alcohol this had a nice mellow blend. I recomend it for aging , if that's your thing
