COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Frogichlaus Swiss-Style Holiday Lager - Creamy Swiss-style holiday lager with a malty taste and aroma, low bitterness, and a reddish-brown color. Frogichlaus is mellow and soothing, the perfect beer to settle down for a cold winter's nap. Inspired by a man so lively and quick, we knew in a moment it must be St. Nick!

Cool_Bond (3361) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2019 Scent of lovely maltiness, sweet brown sugar and overripe fruit. The taste of red berries, maltiness, sweetness and caramel. Exquisite bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth forever. Very tasty for having such a high alcohol percentage. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Idiosynkrasie (9790) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2019 355ml bottle. Clear, dark, brown-ish ruby colour, no head. Clean, mellow, dark malty aroma, notes of malt lozenge, caramel, some toffee, a fruity touch of plum, cherry, red berries, jelly. Taste is sweet, fruity, dark malty, notes of cherry, red berries, jelly, hints of plum, plum butter; oily to viscous texture, smooth, soft, minimally sticky palate, lingering sweet finish. Very nice sipper, somehow very sweet without being too sweet - at least if you consider Frogichlaus as Triplebock. As far as I remember my Samichlaus experiences Frogichlaus appears to be way more clean and fruity, better hidden alcohol as well.

superspak (8086) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2019 12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 11/2018. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper, light ruby red color with a 1 finger dense and rocky khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, toffee, raisin, plum, prune, cherry, fig, date, peach, pear, apricot, red apple, red grape, roasted nuts, toasted biscuit, and brown bread/crust; with lighter notes of molasses, licorice, vanilla, cocoa, coffee, leather, tobacco, smoke, herbal, wood, grass, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. A bit too fruity/yeasty aromas, slight booze as it warmed, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready/light roasted malts, light-moderate fruity yeast, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of huge caramel, brown sugar, toffee, raisin, plum, prune, cherry, fig, date, peach, pear, apricot, red apple, red grape, roasted nuts, toasted biscuit, and brown bread/crust; with lighter notes of molasses, licorice, vanilla, cocoa, coffee, leather, tobacco, smoke, herbal, wood, grass, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Mild herbal, woody, grassy, peppery, roast bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toffee, dark fruit, cherry, peach, pear, apricot, red apple, red grape, roasted nuts, toasted biscuit, brown bread/crust, molasses, licorice, vanilla, cocoa, coffee, leather, tobacco, smoke, herbal, wood, grass, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roasted malts, light-moderate fruity yeast, and light earthy hop flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying sweetness after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors, not overly fruity/yeasty. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Light-medium carbonation and very full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/slick/bready, lightly sticky, and slightly chalky/resinous mouthfeel that is great. Mild increasing warmth of 12.4%, with minimal booze lingering after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic huge doppelbock style! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roasted malts, light-moderate fruity yeast, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the huge ABV, with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Tastes extremely similar to Samiclaus as expected. Insanely rich dark/Munich malt complexity, moderate dark fruity malt flavors, and nice solid earthy hop presence/balance against sweetness. A highly enjoyable offering, and well made style example as expected. Will definitely age really well as with Samichlaus.

JaBier (9464) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2018 Bottle shared by a friend. Clear copper pour with a thin beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, light smoke and candied fruit. Sweet malt and caramel flavor with a candied apricot finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Tried side by side with Samichlaus (not fresh, unfortuntely; 2012). Frogi had a bit more depth of flavor and substituted the signature prune flavor for what my palate interpreted as candied apricot. Nice, for what it is.

CloakedDagger (3962) - - DEC 12, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2018 Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours an almost clear, dark amber with a dissipating, yellowish/beige head. Nose is malts, and more malts, and... Heavy on the toasted caramel, with and obvious boozy end. However not as boozy as you could expect considering the high ABV. Body is surprisingly only medium, carbonation is to the low side and not surprisingly this is all about them sweet caramellish malts. Never cloying though, just enough bittering hops to keep some sort of balance. And again the booze is surprisingly downplayed for a Lager making this a scaringly easy drink. I would love to try this side by side with the original Samichlaus - right now I have a feeling that Fred The Frog's version is in the lead! And could I please wish, that this could start a worldwide Bock revival? 121218
