Beer Description:
This beer was discontinued by Hurlimann in 1996. Castle Eggenberg brews all versions from 2000 and later.

SAMICHLAUS BIER® is brewed only once a year on 6th December, the day of St. Nicholas (Santa Claus) and is aged for 10 months before bottling. SAMICHLAUS is one of the rarest beer specialities in the world and with 14% alcohol by volume, it is the strongest bottom-fermented beer in the world. SAMICHLAUS may be aged in the bottle for many years to come, as older vintages become more complex with a creamy warming finish. This beer can be served with hardy robust dishes and desserts, particularly with chocolates, or as an after dinner drink by itself.
