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.

Light in color for a doppel, and the aroma came off as a bit weak, but this thing has enough flavor to make it up. Thick honey, some floral flavors, and a warming feeling of alcohol without a big alcohol flavor. Would be better on a colder night, I think.

einherjar (530) - Rijeka, CROATIA - FEB 18, 2018
Ruby color, small head. Aroma malt and sugar. Taste very sweet, raisins, malt, alcohol. Too much for me.

hrabren (2044) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 13, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2018 0.33 l bottle from Beerlovers, Vienna. Shared with Slušaj vamo! Clear amber, small off-white head. Syrupy, sugary, some alcohol, raisins, light spices. Very soft texture, creamy, strong. A bit boozy. Medium body, soft carbonation, metallic from alcohol, light finish.

Rotbraune Farbe, blank. Wenig stabiler, grobporiger Schaum. Karamellaromen, Alkoholaroma und viel Dörrpflaume. Im Antrunk süß-fruchtig mit Röstmalzaromen und leichter Schokoladenote, vielfältiger Flavour. Im Mund weich, süffig, moussierend, ölig, likörig. Keine Bittere. 0,33l-Flasche am 12.12.17

malibrat (200) - Pula, CROATIA - JAN 26, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Jako gusto i slatko pivo crvenkasto smeđe boje . Voćne arome i jakog tijela. Ma to treba piti poslje kolača na kraju večeri. Poslje njega ne možeš više nikakvo pivo piti , jer je pre-bogatog okusa čak i za Quadrupele ! Obavezno probati !

dorain (750) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2018
Aus der Flasche im 2018-01 getrunken. Zum Glück ist dieses Bier schon paar Jahre alt und gereift, denn sonst wäre die Süsse in diesem Bier viel zu dominant. Doch so ist dies wie ein süßer Nachtisch.

hershiser2 (3882) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2018
$5.60 bottle, Wine Warehouse. Pours clear brown with a small beige head. Aroma is wet dog, caramel, earth. Flavor is whoa sweet caramel, burnt sugar, earth, brown leaves. Perhaps too sweet for me to love it, but this is interesting.

PilsnerDoctor32 (526) - madrid, SPAIN - JAN 5, 2018

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2017 2015 bottle bought in 2016, consumed 2017. Delicious. Smooth, wonderfully boozy, rich and raisiny, caramel notes. Terrific sipper. Great stuff. Best not to drink too cold; the flavors really open up as it loses its chill.

lidor1995 (158) - ISRAEL - DEC 22, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2017 Pours from the bottle dark almost black brown with no head, sweet resins aroma, sweet start with a clean warming plate

Icedwarf (1908) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2017
Helder lichbruin bier zonder schuim. Smaak is krachtig warm, zoet en robuust met iets van rozijnen, anijs en honing. Mooi bier voor een winteravond.
