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.

Bottle. Dark copper color. Aroma is alcohol and raisins, toffee and a little woody quality. Flavor is spices, warm alcohol, dried fruits and malts. Rigtig god sammen med kransekage !

33 cL bottle, 2005 vintage. Pours slight darker orange compared to helles. Dark roasted and dried fruity aroma. Fullbodied. Flavour is sweet raisin like and with a mild malt base. Solid warming finish. Far more complex in flavour than the helles - but also with a slight oldish feel.

[Vintage 2003 sampled 25 november 2003] This is a fantasticly amber colored beer with no head. The aroma is very powerful with notes of fruit especially apricot. The flavor is also sweet with strong notes of apricot. This beer is great as a digestive. All in all it is plain great.

2004-edition. Amber colour with yellowish head, that disappears fast. Sweet aroma with notes of alcohol. Very carbonated. Very sweet flavour (almost cloying) with notes of honey and alcohol.

oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2006
Bottled. Reddish copper colour, small head. Aroma is alcohol, vanilla and caramel along with some yeasty hints. Flavour is alcohol, sugary, caramellish and warming. Pleasant to sip from, but was not hard drinking fast either. It gently rips your senses and suddently you note you are not sober anymore...

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2010 2006 bottle courtesy of brad, thanks! Light and very clear amber, no head or lacing. Aroma of caramel, similar taste. Pretty straightforward.

cgarvieuk (25741) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 2, 2009
Lovely dark copper ... with very light lacing and little bubbles ... sweet cherry fruits nose... rich sharp alcohol ... some toffee ... quite a lot of pine ... fair bite .... syrupy ... just too alcoholic ... but an ok nip.

Bottled. 2001 version sampled in October 2001.
Pours red-brown and thick. Super malty with syrupy sweetness. Will by all likeliness gain by 10-25 years of aging.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Super strong deep rich taste with a fruity undertone. Spritzy characteristics and a bitterish porty finish. Nice!
