Sdaniel90 (404) - Mexico City, MEXICO - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. 2013 edition. Deep reddish copper with a minimal white head. Sweet, roasted aroma of caramel, dried fruits, firewood, toffee and alcohol. Extra sweet and sticky, with moderate carbonation. Over the top sweetness. Strong brown sugar and caramel character, with little to no bitterness. Alcohol is well masked for 14%, but still comes across strong in the finish, as well as an overwhelming sweetness. A magnificently complex and well brewed German Strong Lager, but the heavy sweetness makes it near undrinkable. Seems almost like a digestive licor.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Pours hazy copper with fizzy off-white head. Nose is rich and boozy, with caramel, oaky bourbon, molasses. Tastes very dense, sweet, caramelly, oaky, with notes of heavy wood, rum, and bourbon. Dense finish that gets hotter as it warms.

Heavy alchohol but great doppelbock beer. Serve child but not ice cold. 12 ounces is enough.

cmacklin (304) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
750 ml bottle. (2012 edition) Pours a clear maroon colour with a small off-white head. Sweet aroma of ripe fruit, caramel, wood and alcohol. Flavour is very sweet with notes of dark fruit, caramel, spices, vanilla and wood with a warming alcohol finish. Medium to full body with a sticky, oily texture and soft carbonation. Very sophisticated, reminds me of a cognac.

one litre bottle at baerwaldt’s xmas tasting, thanks chris! my notes refer to it as the ’white beard edition’. woody amber with next to no head; aroma of soggy sultanas, trail mix; still relatively sweet with traces of vanilla essence, williams schnapps and toffee; sticky but not cloying, instead warming and invigorating

I’ve had this in my cellar for a while and kept it as an experiment but now its time to drink. Pours a nice clear amber with a small white head. The aroma is that of caramel mixed with a bit of licorice and alcohol. It has a heavy sweet taste that reminds me of toffee and caramel. It has a slight burn from the alcohol but not as bad as I remember it being when it was fresh. the aging has definitely made it sweeter. Leaves a clean after taste.

Bottled 1000ml @Per
My birthday beer from Per. Clear deep brown-amber color, small off-white head. Sweet, fudge aroma. Medium to full bodied. Sweet like the normal Samiclaus but with some notes from the barrel. Very nice and you could cellar this 4-5 more years easily. Thanks Per.

Bottled@omhper. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, some alcohol burn as well as some nutty and mildly ripe fruity notes. Flavour is fruity, alcohol and also has some raisins and ripe fruits. Pleasantly balanced.
