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.

sebsky (513) - ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2018
330 ml bottle from Beers of Europe,bb 10/2022. Dark amber red,clear. Nose - dried fruits,cloves,alcohol but not harsh in any way,quite opposite - warm and welcoming. Taste - sweet and follows the nose. Light bitterness towards the finish. Nice beer to sip.

It's the strongest beer in the world some say. I'm not sure that's true, but it is delightful. It's very sweet and malty and it has a real alcohol burn for a finish, but it gets your attention and tastes wonderful.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2018 .... 14’ alcolici, si sentono tutti, ambrato scuro, aroma malto, sherry. Sapore troppo dolce, uva passa, prugna, finale asciutto. Non mi convince.

vincentvega72 (1003) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2018 Caramelkleurig met fijne off-white schuimkraag die snel inzakt. Zoet, lichtbruine suiker, toffee, caramel, honing, dadels, vanille. Likeurachtig bier, licht alcoholisch. Kleine tinteling op het tandvlees. Bijna geen koolzuur. Milde droog-bittere warmende afdronk. Beetje apart qua bier maar zeer goed.

Moretum (303) - Vienna, AUSTRIA, AUSTRIA - MAR 9, 2018
Bräunliche, dunkelrote Farbe mit kleiner, fast nicht vorhandener, weißer Schaumkrone. Prägnant süßer, malziger Geruch. Geschmacklich ausgeprägt süß malzig mit Karamell und Alkoholnote. Prägnante Süße mit leichter Bitterkeit, voller Körper mit sanfter Kohlensäure.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2018 This is one of the most unique beers I have ever had. Pours a beautiful deep amber colour, no head. Everything you'd want in a boozy beer: notes of dried fruits, cloves, and vanilla. Slick mouthfeel that borders on a syrupy stickness as it warms further (but not in a bad way, although it may put off some drinkers). All the flavours hide the booziness, but it is present. Good to cellar. Mild carbonation. One of the best specialty beers I've ever had.

heman (1359) - Tychy, POLAND - FEB 28, 2018
Barwa miedziana, piwo klarowne, piana skąpa. Aromat intensywny, dużo karmelu (przyjemnego), nut toffi, krówki, rodzynki, figi, ciemne pieczywo. W smaku bardzo pełne, słodkie, wyklejające. Toffi i karmel dominują, zaraz za nimi suszone owoce i alkoholowy, lekko męczący finisz.

edgallow (4762) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 26, 2018
Bottle pours hazy amber with a off white head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, toffee and some grains. Taste is raisins, brown sugar and some grains

einherjar (562) - Rijeka, CROATIA - FEB 18, 2018
Ruby color, small head. Aroma malt and sugar. Taste very sweet, raisins, malt, alcohol. Too much for me.
