COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The once strongest beer in the world is back ! Brewed only once a year on December 6. Samichlaus is aged for 10 months before bottling. This beer is perhaps the rarest in the world. Samichlaus may be aged for many years to come. Older vintages become more complex with a creamy warming finish. Serve with hardy robust dishes and desserts, particulary with chocolates, or as an after dinner drink by itself. Brewed under the exclusive licence of Feldschlösschen-Hürlimann-Holding, Switzerland.

This beer has kick!. It is thick and has a very pronouced alcohol punch. Possibly some type of fruit somewhere in the middle.

On tap at my favorite bar, Elmer Sudds...wow. Orange red in color, with a slim head that has a red hint. Smells spicy and alcoholy, a warm sensation at first wiff. Taste is great, a thick chewy beer with a spicy alcohol taste, with hints of berries. A nice warm felling in the after taste, probably the 14% ABV.

I bought a 4 pack of the 2001 edition and split it with a friend. On the pour the head disappeared quickly and had a nice amber color. The alchol was not hidden in the taste. The taste was similar to a Immort Ale or a Blithering Idiot. Very strong and very warming

This beer is malty sweet. It reminds me alot of Vetters that I got via a trade with JPKnight22. It’s not my style, but I like it just the same.

Big Malty flavor.Barleywine type body. Very big bite, an agressive brew. ABV makes no attempt at hiding.
