Samichlaus is an Emporer amoung beers. Rare and hard to come by, it is important to pick some up if you see it. As the self proclaimed "Rarest beer in the world", one expects an expert presentation and it does not dissapoint. The color is rich and smell is exceptional. The taste is likewise impressive being an interesting blend of malt, sweetness, creamy full bodied goodness, and a hard kick from the high alcoholic content which brings it all into line. It is a real pleasure to drink, well worth the wait, effort, and money that goes into purchasing it. Above all, this beer begs to be shared. The experience of sharing a few bottles of such a rare and wonderful beer is half the pleasure of drinking it. Enjoy and make the most of it, treasure every sip and memorize every flavor.

Fresh bottle, only a couple of months old
A- Pours clear and copper color with a very small fizzy head that disappears quickly, leaving nothing behind
S- big sweet malty aromas with notes of fresh bread, fruit cake, caramel, toffee, alcohol and dark cherries
T- very sweet caramel malt up front with a big hit of sweet brown sugar. sweet bread with some fruity notes mixed in, continuing into a sweet finish
M- thick and viscous body with low carbonation, foamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish, big alcohol warmth at the end
O- super sweet and definitely a sipper, but the sweetness does not overpower. Great sweet bread flavors that one would expect from a doppelbock. I'd love to get another bottle to see what some age does for it, but it drinks just fine fresh
