Ultra yeasty, lots of booze, vinous, doughy, pear drops, full on stuff
Lovely stuff but scary

Good and incredibly complex but still needs some time to mellow

Now here's something. Age and wood turned the base almost completely flat, and it certainly portified a bit. Sweet, syrupy, rich and really vinous. Raisins, some wood, a good bit of acidity too. Fun and pretty tasty, but on its way down.

Pours unclear amber, small white head. Smell is fleshy, tart, oak, bit of wine. Taste is full, tad tart, red wine. oak, very nice ! mild glue-features. usually , i like these beers way more with a few years of age on it, so I assume i'll like this one more in the future as well.

sample @ Kulminator Antwerpen. Last rated beer after a very long day of travelling and beer tasting. Probably needs a re-rate sooner or later, because me and my tastebuds were extremely tired. Aroma of oak and alcohol. Sweet flavor with a rich maltiness, alcohol, oak and a hint of rapsberry. More balanced and more complexity as the "normal" 2005 Stille Nacht. (4.1 = 8 3 9 4 17) Re-rate, bottle from Hopscotch, tasted @ home. Orange color, cloudy, slight gusher. Oak, rosebuds, hint of cherry in the aroma. Oaky, alcoholic flavor. Hint of cherry juice, vanilla, raspberry, malt. Upcoming sourness. Banana. Good complexity in this overwhelming beer.
