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.

pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - FEB 8, 2013
From 12 ounce bottle. Strong and sweet, with honey, caramelized fruit flavors. Could easily be too sweet for some, but it was nice and warming for me. Almost like a port.

Erzengel (9355) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2017
Sweetish caramelly sticky beginning. Very deep and intense. Caramel, brown sugar, not too sticky. Nice sweetish but sessionable dark aftertaste with molasses and a moderate bitterness.

Piana szczątkowa znika po chwili. Kolor bursztyn klarowny. Aromat słodki, karmel, suszone owoce, winogrona, melanoidyny, kwaskowo winny alkohol, bardzo przyjemny. Smak, słodycz nie przesadzona, karmel, melasa, cukier kandyzowany, są suszone owoce, miód, melanoidyny, jest tez obecna w aromacie winogronowa, winna nuta alkoholu, szlachetna przyjemna. Całość świetnie się komponuje smaki się przenikają. Bardzo Dobre (01.2021)

Piepenhenrich (1195) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017
Very strong, still despite its ABV relatively smooth in gtaste, but of course alcoholic notes remain. Otherwise lovely malty, sweetish and after all a complex belnd of flavors make this a special brew, indeed.

Sebilinz (2555) - Linz, AUSTRIA - SEP 28, 2017
Bottle 2008 vintage. Dark brown body with nearly no tan head. Aroma is roasted malts cocoa raisins. Taste is sweet malty fruity some alcohol. Aftertaste is sweet alcohol. Aging makes it much better. Still don't really like the fresh one.

3.4
Porcellini (60) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 22, 2017
Color negro, Poca espuma y poca carbonatación. Olor a frutas y el sabor es dulzón, me recordaba al tequila, por lo que hay notas a caramelo. Final amargo a más no poder. Es muy muy fuerte, demasiado para mi gusto, me costó mucho terminármela.

3.3
OminouSC2 (845) - Mora, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2017
Bottle thanks to Xebbe. Copper colored, minimal beige head. Sweet aromas of caramel, candy sugar, syrup and dried fruit. Very sweet taste with honey, candy sugar and marmalade.

4.5
pmonnier (8) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 15, 2017 does not count
Bien équilibrée. Malt caramélisé très présent. Alcool apportant de l'onctuosité sans être agressif. Excellente bière. Une des meilleures bières spéciales que j'ai dégustée. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.5
FinnIckler (791) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2017
Bottle. Nose is caramellized candy, some chocolate, some toffee, toast. palate is very sweet, liccorice, cough syrup. This is like a doppelbock on steroids.

3.3
Oleg85 (226) - Yaroslavl, RUSSIA - AUG 30, 2017
Карамельный, приторный, сиропный. Тем не менее всё это хорошо скрывает алкоголь.

3.5
IOzh (195) - Kyiv, UKRAINE - AUG 11, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours deep brown with almost no head. Aroma of caramel, plums, malts, dark fruits, alcohol. Medium body with flat carbonation. Taste is medium to high sweet, same sweet finish. Feels more like liquor, nice aroma but too sweet for my taste.
