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.

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

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2018 Это пиво согреет тело и душу в любой день. Мощный сладковато сложный вкус, без единого намека на привкус спирта. Это пиво для наслаждения вкусом создано.

MNAle (269) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2018
Bottled in 2016. Malty sweet aroma, caramel, and alcohol. Deep ruby color with bubbles nicely rising to a short off-white head that disappears quickly to a ring with swirling bubbles creating a pattern at the top. Thick mouth feel leading to a thick, sweet very malty taste. Despite the strength of the beer, there is little (but not no) alcohol in the taste and no burn but for a slight sensation on the tongue. Very slight bitterness (which may actually be from the alcohol). This is a very since sippable beer. If you don't like sweet, malty beers, you won't like it. But, if you do, it is gorgeous.

Sehr süß, mächtiger Körper, sanfte Kohlensäure, Aromen nach Malz, Karamell, etwas Lebkuchen und Gewürze, relativ intensiver Alkohol. Insgesamt wirklich gut, allerdings sehr süß.

Аромат очень яркий. цветочный, конфетный, медовый, ванильный. В общем на столько сладкий что в голове перемешиваются все кондитерские изделия какие только могут быть. Темное, янтарное пиво с кремовой пенкой по стенке бокала. Вкус сложный, насыщенный, алкоголь в нем присутствует очень отдаленно, но приятно греет после глотка. Очень сладкое пиво, но различить в первых глотках какие то ноты не удается, слишком ярко. Хочется сидеть и вникать в них. Далее раскрывается ваниль и карамель.Что странно, но не смотря на солодовость есть нотки хмеля на послевкусии. Все же аромат впечатляет больше, чем вкус, так как за яркой сладостью очень сложно услышать вкус. Возможно я просто его не понял... пока не понял, бокал еще полон и время у меня есть.

Pours amber/brown with a very minimal head which quickly disappears. Aromas of malt, earth and alcohol, taste is very sweet (caramel) and alcoholy (14%) with medium carbonation. My kind of beer! Exquisite!

Piw (1353) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - APR 24, 2018
330ml Flasche. Klar und bernsteinfarben mit minimaler Schaumkrone. Sehr malzig mit Röstaromen. Voller Körper. Stark. Süßer Nachgeschmack.

AleRider78 (1758) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2018
2014 rating. Pours a very thin foamy head but goes away pretty quick. Has a clean dark amber appearance. No lacing whatsoever. Aromas are mainly earthy and herbal hops as well as sweet malts and spices. Strong alcohol presence from the first drink. Flavours are dry type fruits (raisins, plums). Big warming and tingling sensation on the palate. Full bodied mouthfeel. One bottle though, is quite sufficient.

Cerveza hiperalcohólica con sabor a caramelo muy dulce, no esperes sacar muchos matices a una cerveza con tanto alcohol

AnokaBrewer (229) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2018 333 ml bottle purchased in Austria. Brown in color, sweet nose and a very sweet malty taste. I have had this before and would certainly get it again.
