4.3/5  rDev +14.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

2007 vintage, aged 5 years by my good friends at Hollingshead.

Pours copper orange with a tiny dirty tan head which dissipates in less than one minute. No lacing, but not surprising considering the huge abv.

Smell is sweet booze, toffee, roasted malts and more cloyingly sweet plum skin. What a daunting, yet enticing aroma.

Taste is awesome, nicely sweet candied malt. There is some booze, but it's not overpowering. Deep and malty, huge and balanced.

Feel is thick and syrupy. There is almost no carbonation, but that's alright. The beer warms my stomach like a fine spirit, but doesn't burn as much on my tongue.

What a strange and awesome brew. I am glad I picked up this nicely aged beer. Everything about this is scary, but once I filled my mouth with this concoction, I was very pleased. While alcohol is present in every aspect, it's balanced, and only by it's aging.

This beer is the true Arrogant Bastard. Huge and takes the other beers to school, and makes them their bitch. Be afraid, if you can't handle this, it's alright, you aren't ready, or perhaps, you didn't age it long enough.

The events as they unfolded:
1. Read about Samichlaus beer in BeerAdvocate.
2. Saw it in North Carolina less than two weeks later, first at Brawley's (Charlotte) and then Sam's Quik Stop (Durham). Picked up a four pack immediately! (I still have one bottle of that pack.)
3. Walked into Sam's just two evenings ago and encountered two--not just one, but two--different case stacks of Samichlaus beer, one of a new variety. Both species retail at $16.99 a four-pack, and I couldn't resist picking up a single bottle of the Helles Lager to try. There's not too much of a hurry to pick up the Doppelbock; Sam's still has some left over from last season!

I agree with the previous reviewer that perhaps this is the wrong style category for this beer. Almost none of the traditional Doppelbock characteristics are present here, with the sole exception of ABV strength. Helles Bock may be a better choice, but Samichlaus Helles Lager certainly reminds me of the many Imperial Pilseners I've enjoyed recently. Hmmm.

It pours a dark yellow into my pint glass; the near-white head is not substantial and isn't sustained for very long. The liquid is nearly transparent, and bubbles continue to rise from the depths of the glass to the surface. It's quite a beauty to hold up to the light and watch for a bit.

There's so much going on in the smell: there are elements of heavy yeasts and malts combined with floral esters, all backed up with the scent of warm alcohol. One barely needs to proceed further.

The body is nearly chewy, and the feel of alcohol on the tongue is noticably strong. Lighter flavors of grain and hops are married to the heavier floral and sweet flavors. It's refreshing, and yet, as the same time, a serious undertaking. I wanted to guzzle it like some thirst-quenching soda or fruit-flavored water, but the heaviness keeps it more at bay. One is all I can handle!

Quite an interesting brew, and one I'll certain to keep around for winter and spring.

Red label Samichlaus Helles was picked up in a 12 oz., brown bottle, and poured into a goblet. The beer came out fizzy and developed almost no head, but the body was a crystal clear, pale gold. The smell was quite a fruity and alcoholic treat. Lots of pears, apples, and grapes on the nose, soaked in cognac. The taste was warm, sweet, and ... well it was hard to get past the sweet. The spices (anise and pepper), vanilla, and fruits were all drizzled in lots of powdered sugar. Some might find this level of sweetness cloying, but I found the strong countering by the drying alcohol a sufficiently palatable combination. As I got further along, some hop bitterness showed up as well. Very richly textured, and oh so warming. Some might consider this a good fireside sipper, but I'd be beware of igniting the vapors. Fits all the classic definitions of a cellarable a beer, and I sure will be stashing away some for a decade or more to get it to peak.

Pours just like any other helles - pale golden color, thin white head, and you can see through it quite well.

Nose is a little tepid. Some honey & sweetbread aromas.

Palate packs a whopper malt character with honey-like sweetness, alcohol punch to your face, and a syrupy thick mouthfeel. It's not almost syrupy, it is syrupy. This could be served on buttermilk pancakes if desired.

Finish is warming with plenty of alcohol presence.

2007 Pop-top 1pt 9.4oz bottle. I recived this as a birthday present earlier this month,as the brewing date corresponds with my birthday.
Pours out a cherry-brown tone,leaving little to no head.
Aromas are cherry cordial sweetness,congac-bite,a rich vanilla custard sweetness.Think Arm cheesecake. Malty earthy tones make up the crust of this delicious treat.
Taste is rendolent of the aroma. Spicy,sweet, cherrys up front,finishes with a cherry malt bite. German Gluhwein is immediatley called to mind, spicy and biting.The fullness of the creaminess of the taste is silky as eggnog, this really hits all points of a holiday drink.Long and lingering,this would be perfect sitting next to the tree at Chrismastime.
The mouthfeel is very full, the bite of the gingery spiciness combined with the sweet fullness of the creamy cherry-spice flavor make this a fantastic holiday treat. I hope to enjoy each year. Cheers St. Nick!

I didn't even know this existed, until I saw someone order it at the bar I'm marooned at while the rain pours down. So, here I go, a drinkin'...

Clear amber color, smallish white head, stick around a bit...

Aroma: clean and lightly fruity, peach and apple, apricot and herbs...

Drink it already!....Boom! Big fat malt, huge fruity flavor, little hops, nothing but enormous malt and alcohol. Slick, sweet, clean. Yum. Light bodied, lean, sweet, malty lager....way over-sized booze. Incredible, formidable, intense. Burning fruit roasts the palate, clean and mean, ...yum, and hot! yum, and fierce! yum, and POW!

Mmmm, all 14 % blonde doppelbocks should be this good!

Wow! What a great brew! The beer pours a beautiful orange and gold color with a perfectly clear tinge. Not alot of head or lace, just a good old fashioned, high alcohol beer here! The aroma is sweet and smells of fermented grains and sweet alcohol, with a nice bit of singe to the note. The beer has a nice taste of grains and alcohol and really warms up as it is going down. Leaves a wonderful slight burn on the tongue and is a very worthy contender in my book as one of the top 10 beers I have tried, without a doubt. A bit expensive, but worth every penny.

This was poured from a bottle into a tulip glass

A: Beautiful copper color. Very minimal head.

S: The smell of this beer is spectacular. I feel like it helps prepare me for the ensuing flavour

T: As it first hits your taste buds you feel the sweetness. It has a smooth candied flavour. There is a slight presence of alcohol

M: The mouthfeel brings the higher alcohol characteristic. It has a mellowing burn similar to that of a whiskey

O: This is a great beer. I don't think I could have more than one in a sitting, but one is just fine.

As a Samichlaus aficionado, I was extremely curious to try this one.
Light orange gold pour with a small white head. Beautiful clarity to the brew.
Bit of sweet malt in the aroma along with some alcohol.
Lots of sweet malt mixed with alcohol in the flavor. A bit of candied fruit with a small amount of hop bitterness in the finish.
A little bit syrupy in the mouthfeel. Alcohol warms all the way down the throat. One usually thinks of a helles as something to drink in the summer, but this is a fine winter beer.
I couldn't drink more than two of these in an evening, but for its strength it's an easy beer to drink. Urbock 23 on steroids. I hope that Eggenberg keeps making this one.

Poured from a smallish 11.2 oz bottle to a beer glass, the liquid is a nice clear gold with soso carbonation. The head is small and leaves very little lace.

The smell is alcohol socked bread.

The taste follows a very nice bready big brew. And bam lots of alcohol too. Taste complexities include, pear, peach and cherries. But it seems the huge 14% ABV will chase most.

The mouthfeel is huge full body, subdued carbonation and a bit of burn.

The drinkability... Well ha this brew is a sipper to be sure. Take it easy kids.

A-Pours a clear honeyed amber with no discernible head. Some nice stickiness.

S-Lots of honey sweetness with some malt and hints of alcohol.

T-Very smooth and sweet. Lots of malt and caramel, no discernible hops and a warming alcohol finish. The alcohol is surprisingly well hidden for a 14% ABV.

M-Using a derivate of "honey" for the third time in this review, it has a viscous honey feel on the tongue. Rather thick and viscous but still quite pleasant.

D-A long sipper. I do not mind that when the bottle, like this, is 11.2 oz. I can't stand a bomber that drinks this way as I rarely have 4 hours to spend on a beer.

I am sure there is a technical reason this is classified as a dopplebock but it sure does not drink like one. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this given the very high ABV but the alcohol is well hidden (relatively speaking).

2007 vintage, 330ml. brown bottle. Poured into a Chimay chalice a bright orange-gold with a thin 1/4" off-white head that disappears before your eyes.

It smells of sweet toasty malt, over ripened fruit and boat load of alcohol, as it should at 14% ABV.

The taste is ever so sweet of grainy malt, floral fruitiness and a big punch of alcohol that hides not. This stuff tastes strong and is strong. Good and strong.

A medium syrupy body that fluffs a bit in the mouth, tingles a bit on the tongue, then goes down with a pleasant warming sensation...good stuff!

Very sweet, very drinkable for it's potency and a kick-ass brew to boot...worth the experience for sure.

Pour into a pilsner glass at 45 degrees.

Appearance: A deep gold color with no head. There is a lot of carbonation in the beer. The clarity of the beer is very clear.

Nose: Port like aroma. Raisin, plum, grape , and rich toasted malt with a sweet caramel molasses. A rich alcoholic on the foreground. Kinda like a grape juice on store shelves.

Taste: A spicy alcohol with a port like aroma with raisin, plum, and grapes. There is a lightly toasted malt with a sweet yeast and bread like. There is caramel and that grape juice taste.

Overall: I like this one better than its cousin. It has a spicy warming alcohol mouth feel. The finish is sweet and linger on the palate for a few moments. The is a very strong beer that will put u at one or two sheets.

2007 vintage

First off, this one popped open with some super fizz. I wonder if this has any infection.

A- The head faded quickly, with no activity in the glass. The beer itself is crystal clear. Looks like that of a great port that has just the slightest pink tone to it.

S- Dark fruits, port, various fruity wine, subtle alcohol.

T- This is sweet tasting. Tastes just like a sweet wine mixed with a port. That truly is how this one stacks up. There is a small carbonation to this, and it helps the flavors along. The alcohol does have a good burn for sure, like spicy salsa on the lips.

M- Good feel, not too thick, but just the right feel.

O- Tasty, great flavors, lots of complexity. I'm glad I picked this up. I'll have to pick up another one when I get the chance.

Pours a reddish gold, very attractive.

Head is a tiny ring around the outside.

Nose is very malty sweet, candy sugar sweet as well.

Very crisp on the front, clean. Sweet on the back, burns the sides of my tongue just a bit. Crisp on the finish at first, but the sweetness comes back.

Alcohol comes late, and lingers very warm.

Overall, a very pleasant beer. Definitely an easy way to get drunk.

I sat on this one a few months to cellar, but now I can't wait any more! Here goes:

Pours a noisy & effervescent golden honey with 2 fingers of beige head. No head & a bit of lacing

S: Fruitty & bready & clean booze & fussell alcohol, slight smokeyness

T: Some honey, dates, apricot & nice breadyness up front. More honey, grainyness, pineapple & passion fruit all show as this warms. Finishes with loads of honey, tropical fruit,& booze

MF: Chewy with vigirous carbonation, a little too much, some syruppy notes, great warming sensations, reminds me of a young mead in many respects

Drinkability is fantastic for the ABV & pretty good for the style, nice digestive/nightcap dopple, not one to trifle with or to attempt to session on! Next time I see it I will buy more & hide them from myself & see how the aging improves or doesn't this fine dopple

2007 batch, brewed on December 6, 2007, of course. Sadly, the enjoyment of this one was six days past its one-year vintage -- it would have been much more exciting to have enjoyed it on 6. Dezember 2008. The excitement was still present, nevertheless.

Pours a clear, deep golden hue with just a tinge of amber. A slight head of creamy white foam rises slowly and falls quickly, all but disappearing and dropping no trace of itself on the walls of the tulip glass.

Smells big, rich and malty, with a powerfully sweet malt aroma mixed with a bit of boozy alcohol.

Extremely full-bodied, thick and viscous in mouthfeel. A huge malt bomb on the palate. Mega malt sweetness melds with a warming alcohol presence and a bit of fruitiness, going down with a pleasant warm feeling and a lingering sweetness that is, at the same time, dry, and calls for yet another swallow.

Deceptively drinkable is an understatement. Despite the maltiness, which is often borderline cloying, and the heavy alcohol presence, this brew just keeps screaming for another sip, and by the end of the glass the 14% ABV has been forgotten, though it quickly emerges in the lightheaded feeling the beer imparts.

Deliciously delicate and hard-hitting. A must-have for any fan of big, malty brews, and for fans of Doppel- and Eisbocks alike. Doppelbock is really a misnomer, as the Triple Bock designation given in Don Russell's book "Christmas Beer" is much more appropriate for a Bockbier this huge.

Clear pale golden coppery color with a bolder center of thickness. A minimal scratchy white head of foam appears briefly to a thin ring and no lacing. Given the malty weight of the brew however, it's not expected.

Aroma is heavy of a slushed over malty tropical mush of warming ethanolic pear, yellow raisin, and apricot.

Warm to the gullet immediately with a malty rich goo of warmth that eludes to a tropical illusion of milding caramel, pear, yellow raisin, and star fruit. A touch of white grape skin dryness perks the finish with a fluff on the tongue of syrupy tropical jam.

Body is slick, bold, filling, warm, sleek, smooth, and more warm. The girth is perfect in its fullness as it lets the malts create a slight stick and chewy aspect behind each warming, hearty sip.

This tremendously malty, sip at, treat is quite nice and tropically set within a gooey mush of yummyness. It will warm any palate quickly and swim any head that drinks it down just as quickly, as it should.

Let me tell you a tale of four beers.

Once upon a time, there was a 4 pack of beers bottled in 2007. They had a pink label and said "Malt Liquor" on the outside. They were put aside and forgotten about.

A year later, the first beer (drank in 2008) tasted like alcoholic Kool-Aid. It was almost a drain pour - but I suffered through it because my palate was unrefined. The "Malt Liquor" label was appropriate.

The second beer (drank in 2010) was more refined. It tasted less like rubbing alcohol and more like cherries and malt. It too needed time to mature. Its two remaining brothers were put aside.

The third beer was called upon (drank in 2012) and it had come into its own. Served in a Brugse Zot glass; it boasted of intense malt, dark fruits, and a less intense (but still present) alcoholic bite. There were hints of caramel and butterscotch. A beer that changed in many ways as it warmed.

The final beer waits for good times ahead.

This is without a doubt, a beer that needs time to come into its own, and a lot of it. Is it worth the wait? Only time will tell - but so far, it has been very telling.

Lots of malt sweetness with some caramel. There is a little bit of hop bitter. Warming but not hot considering the ABV.
A nice beer to sip on a cold evening. For malt lovers only!

It's hard to beleive that the last year this beer was available, I was in diapers. Distinctive red labeling allows this beer to stand out on shelves better, and one I've been wanting to try after enjoying its darker sibling. On to the beer:

The body is deep filtered gold, topped by a short head that goes away quickly. There's some pale malt and lightly perceived alcohol in the nose, surprisingly light on the nose given its strength. It also tasted lighter than expected too, but wow, 14% ABV has never been so easy to drink! Sugary sweet with intense vanilla, doses of pale malts, and alcohol. Not as complex as one might hope, but the brewers did an excellent job mixing the alcohol into the overal flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth and moderate, "lightly syurpy", and not over the top.

While it isn't as interesting as the darker stuff, this bright beer is a lethal alcohol delivery system thanks to its incredible drinkability. Treat this bottle with respect and enjoy!

Appearance is slightly hazy orange with a frothy white head that lingers for a moment then settles in a ring around the glass. Faint smells of bready malt with notes of cherries and raisins in the background. Noble hops finally appear as the beer warms up a bit. Tastes much more upfront with loads of bready malt blended with flowery noble hops. Medium to medium-full body balanced decently with moderate carbonation and you can definately detect that 14% ABV with a decent alcohol warmth as you swallow, but it's not a harsh finish at all. Overall a nicely balanced beer for such a high ABV and definately worth seeking out.

Pours a clear golden, minimal head, some lacing.

Smells of malt, oak, booze, and fruits - apples?

Very fruity in the taste, apple, pineapple, peach, that turns to oak, also a spicy finish in there. Big dose of malt in there, also very sweet - tastes a bit like pure sugar cubes. Alcohol is in there, but certainly well hidden considering. A very interesting sipper.

Mouthfeel slick.

Definitely worth a try here. Reminds me a bit of an Old Ale and other high abv styles, which I haven't been a big fan of, yet this is certainly well crafted and impressed me. Really nice if you're in the mood for it.

This beer is helles good!

Pours a thin clear lager yellow with little to no head. nose is of an intense lager. The taste is very very interesting. It is very thin up front but quickly turns to some dark fruit taste (didnt expect that) This is very tasty and has almost a barleywine sugar taste to it. The mouthfeel is nice and thick and the aftertaste lingers forever!! I actually occasionally prefer this to samichlaus. Good brew, should do great in my cellar.
