Top 10 beers for winter

De Dolle Stille Nacht

De Dolle Stille NachtDe Dolle Brouwers are based in Belgium and beer has been brewed on its current site since 1835. The Stille Nacht (Silent Night) beer is brewed for Christmas and at 12% abv it is the strongest of the winter beers in this list. Boiled for five hours and brewed with pale malt and with “white candy sugar in the kettle”, there is a sweetness to this beer, which is balanced with Nugget hops and dry hopping.

With it being such a strong beer, it is one that can be aged if stored correctly and the brewer says if it is stored at 10°C then ageing “will not decrease the quality of this beer”.
