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°

Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2008
Pours clear bright golden with little head. Aromas of apple, walnut, date that are wholly unexpected. Sweet-smelling. Palate is insanely drinkable and quaffable. Flavors also include lots of apple and date. Sweet and dry at the same time and sweet without being cloying. An incredible and underrated strong lager.

bhensonb (15759) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 2, 2008
330 ml bottle. Aroma is almost wheaty. Color is orange gold, and there is no head. Very full bodied, with sharp, creamy carbonation. The first impression is sugar, then the blood surges from the CH3CH2OH hit. Everything turns milder as time passes. This is a very superior beer. The sweetness perserveres, but it’s not obnoxious. We should be grateful that the brew is revived. It’s amazing.

henrikb (1264) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2008
Clear light amber body, very fast disappering white head; Very small nose with a little malt, a little alcohol sharp; Oily texture, sweet a bit 1-dimensional; Huge alcohol burn in finish, lots of malt aromas.

bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle. Golden amber beer with a thin whitish head. Sweet malt, slight grassy aroma. Sweet malt flavors with lots of fusels and some cereal. Lingering sweet malt and caramel. Medium-plus body.

Radek Kliber (7483) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 28, 2008
Bottle 330ml
Appearance: Good color of amber-gold with rocky top.
Nose : Plum , fruity with rich clean vintage alcohol , sweet caramel candy with some woody hints.
Flavor/Palate : Plenty of dry warmth , semi smooth alcohol burn. Rich malts follow. Decent sipper a bit rough at this stage.

DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2008
Aroma is a very alcoholic, some malt, amber, zero head. Flavour is overpowering alcohol, some malt is noted. Full bodied, intensely strong. Good to try, perhaps a few years can take the edge of this.

IrishBoy (4233) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 25, 2008
11.2 oz bottle from Country Club Liquors; Nose is sweet candi sugar with a small amount of banana esters and vanilla; pure clear gold with a small white head; flavor is very sweet with some vanilla, caramel, and very light banana and some alcohol that sweetly finishes! Nice thick body! Tastes like a cross between a mead, sake, and weisenbock!

jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2008
[email protected] Sweet apples and gin aroma. Yellow color, small diminishing off-white head, fair lace. Sweet, bitter, apples, very alcoholic and syrupy. Way too alcoholic actually.

ogivlado (8108) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 21, 2008
Bottled(330ml). -The last avaliable Schloss Eggenberg beer. Vintage 2007.
Pours a clear golden colour with small white head and strong alcoholic malt nose. Toasted malt and strong sweet alcoholic taste and nothing else. The finish is also sharp alcoholic. Much too alcoholic to get more than 2.8.

unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2008
Rating #1300:: 33cl bottle, Red and silver label. 14% ABV. This is the strongest Helles ever made! Pours the color of 24K gold. Aroma of a super hopped mead. Needs a bunch of age on it. Big bitterness, just in the nose. Flavor is hugely sweet. Burns a little as it goes down. Big ABV!
