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.

à la maison. Grosse claque , bière à déguster tranquillement (pourquoi pas en digestif) tellement elle est alcoolisée et sucrée. C'est presque du pain d'épices liquide ! Un must !

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2018 The aroma is less like a beer and more like a whiskey... the taste is pretty boozy, which is to be expected given the ABV, but still. It's pretty sweet, and generally nice, but doesn't have as much other taste as I would have liked.

Samichlaus is a real treat, the havy tones of caramel, bread, Raisins and roasted malt keeps the body very heavy. It's a very sweet beer and i'd say it's better to share it. The Palate is what really makes this one, a full minute after you drank it you still get the raisins and caramel.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2018 Pours dark ruby and for the Aussies is reminiscent of a Bundy and Coke in sweetness. But it’s more than this. The sweetness is balanced by its slight effervescence and the smooth flow of hops. Dried fig made soft and delicious from being poached in sugar syrup. I’d like to try it with some pecorino and walnuts drizzled in honey or a dark chocolate pecan pie

bierwolf78 (460) - De Weere, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2018
Uiterlijk: Koperkleurig bier met een fijn laagje schuim. Geur: Honing, cognac, gedroogd fruit, vanille en veel alcohol. Smaak: Zoet, toffee, gewelde rozijnen en natuurlijk de alcohol. Mond, vol en plakkerig, kruidig en alcoholisch, maar daar kan je ook niet omheen met dit type bier met 14% . Lekker onderuit gezakt zitten en rustig weg nippen.

Bottle. Pours dark ruby brown. No head. Aroma is sweet molasses, treacle, lots of sweet malts. Body is medium full. Oily sticky texture. Finish is sweet and sugary.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2018 - Pour amber/ brown with very thin head - Taste of very sweet malt, caremel, and a bit of spice but too sweet for me.

Daboch (388) - Gdansk, POLAND - JUN 11, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2018 Ciemnorubionowe praktycznie klarowne piwo z niezbyt dużą pianą. Aromat intensywny głównie karmel i toffi. W smaku karmel i suszone owoce. Słodkie i wyklejajace podniebienie. Degustacyjne

YeastTapper18 (4) - - MAY 26, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2018 Very strong taste and aroma, a bit too sweet for me. With 14% alc, I feel like drink a mild whisky with softdrink. All in all the best beer i taste this year so far
