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.

$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.

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.
