COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samichlaus is brewed once a year on December 6, and is aged for 10 months before bottling. It is one of the rarest specialties in the world. Samichlaus may be aged in the bottle for many years to come, as older vintages become more complex. Brilliant deep amber, complex dry toasted malt nose and huge intensely sweet palate. The 2007 bottling is the first bottling since 1987. 32°

Aroma of sweet malts are most prevelant with alcohol and some apple hints as well. Apperance was a amber color with a very thin head. Flavor was similar to the aroma- very sweet malts, alcohol was very noticeable, occasional hints of fruit, grass, and some metallic notes present. Mouthfeel was kinda like a dessert wine, syrupy and the alcohol warms you up. Overall it was o.k. and i wouldnt mind trying it again if it were aged a couple of years, but at six bucks a bottle i probably wont try it again. Originally rated on 10/29/08.

Garlic_of_Doom (655) - SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2016
2012 Vintage. Pours clear amber with no head at all. Loads and loads of caramel, fudge/toffee, sugary sweet goodness, some alcohol and perhaps a wee bit smoke (?) and chocolate (?). Taste is pretty much as the aroma but with prominent peppery and nutty notes, some chocolate as well. Full body, low carbonation, sugary and sticky mouth feel.
Good but too sweet and cloying, I’d preferred to split the bottle with someone.

Eastwood (493) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 29, 2016
Tomada en el Kraken. Parece que de las ultimas que quedan en España. Color rojizo. Olor potente. 14°. Densa.Para dusfrutar lentamente. Ajerezada. Poca espuma, ni falta que le hace. Es un poco más dulce que su hermana la Samichlaus Original.

Botella 33 cl tomada en el momento en el kraken 26..03..2016. Color Cerezo transparente con espuma algo rojiza. Aromas y sabores intensos bastante dulces, caramelos y ligeos frutas del bosque y cerezas. Cuerpo intenso con 14 vol algo denso aunque se nota menos que su compañera. Bastante buena. Para repetir.

(Schloss Eggenberg Samichlaus Helles) Bottle 330 ml from Sebilinz, thanks Erich! Vintage 2015, served into a snifter, ABV 14% Deep copper orange colour on the body, crystal clear, with a small and thin, off-white head on top, low retention. Aroma of malts, sugars, light fruity notes, alcohol, apricits. Very sweet taste with syrup, sugars, dried apricot, peach, malts, dates, prunes. alcohol, sherry wine. Medium body, soft carbonation. Rather enjoyable, good sipper, I’d like to try an older vintage some time.
