    Growing up in LA before the advent of GPS, my Mom had a tendency to get lost on the roads. We knew we were heading somewhere we probably shouldn’t be when we started to see signs for bail bonds and Schlitz malt liquor. So I was curious to try this. Too sweet, but otherwise not bad. Wonder if adding sugar is how they ramp up the alcohol content?—by Alexander Muller

    I first had this beer probably 25 years ago in the early stages of my beer odyssey. At the time it was the strongest beer in the world and very rare. It is no longer the strongest, but still only brewed one time each year. The taste is powerful. It warms your insides. Had it with a kick ass chocolate chip cookie and slept like a baby.That being said, my tastes have strayed away from the big power mongers of alcohol. Excellent brew though but one puts you away.—by Andy Rosen

    The last time I had this beer was 2006, when I was still in college. I was studying abroad in Ireland. At that point in my life I would pretty much drink anything; Tuborg was our beer of choice (if you've never had Tuborg, well, I'll let you experience that one yourself...). Anyway, even then, I remember thinking how gross Samiclaus was, and I was 19. Not much has changed, with the beer, at least.—by Brian Howles

    I confess. It was paralysis by analysis that slowed my review output down. Samichlaus is such a Special Occasion Beer that I could not figure out when to drink it. And it just shut me down all week. I remember having it on tap at Ludwig's Garden (long closed) in Philly and it was just awesome. The head dissipated instantly and the beer is fairly still but something gives it a little tingle that makes it nicely drinkable. Yeah. Nicely. More like WHOA! What IS this??? Does this really count as beer? It's really like sipping a sweet session brandy. This beer's insane. It's not even beer. 9.5% rating —by Michael Gates

    Day started at 8:15 coaching my daughter's team in a game where me and the parents were all thrilled we only lost 7-3. Followed that up with two outdoor games for our oldest son in the bullsh*t that was today's weather. Finished by taking the family down to the Sixers debacle... sure the sweetness of this becomes a bit much as I drink it, but considering the day and the fact that it's 14%, I am totally on board with their claim of it being the world's most extraordinary beverage... —by Jim North

    Who would have thunk it... two years ago as we all whined about our Blood Orange Gose - Phil had secretly starting aging 9 cases of jolly ole Samichlaus Bier. They ay they only make this beer once a year (on December 6th) That's almost as wondrous as to how the ACTUAL Santa Claus makes it around the world in only one night. The finish certainly delivers as promised - it's warm and loopy, like a good bourbon or a deep red wine. The Malty font end is well, really malty. This is a special occasion beer.

    This specialty is perhaps the rarest in the world. I copied that from the back label of this FOB contestant, and when I read that, I knew this must be the gem of the case. The lacing on this brew as I poured was unprecedented as the crystal quickly gave way and shards fell to the marble counter, in fascinatingly human-like deference to the liquid within. The dark hue of this dainty pour deceived as my first sip barely registered, yet the refined nuances of this exotic, foreign "Malt Liquor" danced onto my tongue. I knew FOB would expand my horizons, but I was not ready for this rarest of drinks. The Caste Brewery of Eggenberg nailed every aspect of this offering, including the foresight to perfect the limited dosage at 11.2 ounces. Being unworthy, I've halved my rating. I look forward to exploring other Malt Liquor style beers and have already encountered many enticing google results from some initial research. IPA's can wait.—by Wayne Heilala

    So almost eleven years ago - I arrived at a Phils game a bit late, just getting seated, it's the top of the first inning, and already the Mets have bases loaded. 2 outs. The batter drives one deep to center, and Aaron Rowand makes a catch at the wall, does a vertical face plant, and collapses in a heap. The crunch is loud through the entire park. Sometimes, you know the know the impact is coming but you focus on making the play. So it is when you open a 14% beer. —by John B

    Once again great to try new beer. Was a bit of a jolt upon first sip... very strong and plenty of alcohol. But sipping on this beer along with a nice cigar on a beautiful day worked extremely well. Really settled into and enjoyed lots —by dave romesburg

    I like beer. I like being drunk. Samichlaus can satisfy both longings. But I'm not sure I need to get drunk THAT fast. This isn't bad. It's a tad sweet (honey or caramel) but that is to be expected when you are packing 3 beers into one bottle. It's good. I'll never drink one again. But it's good. Thanks FOB. —by Josh Porter

    I was not expecting to like this so much! 14% should not be able to be this smooth and sweet and buttery. I could have had two, but I didn't have 30months to wait —by Andy Holliday

    Extra 1.5 points for aging. It's the Trappiste with a shot of jaeger and bourbon. certainly nothing like the Red Bull malt liquor I was used to. Speaking of bull, I plan to donate to 4-H in Phil's honor. I would specifically suggest auctioning off Scullin's case as it appears it will go unimbibed this year.

    After 4-5 solid tugs on this beer, I felt like i should have mentally and physically prepared to drink this. The preparation I speak of is not simple reflection and some stretching, rather that of Rocky Balboa in Rocky IV prior to his bout with Ivan Drago. I truly believe that only running waist deep in snow with a 20 foot oak tree draped over my shoulders could provide me with the masculinity necessary to finish this beer. Unlike Rocky, I threw in the towel on this beer long before being KO'd by this Malt Liquor. As I threw the bottle in the recycling bin, the words of Ivan Drago echoed through the decades as I heard, "If he dies...he dies".—by Michael Calderone

    This may be the "rarest beer in the world" but this malt liquor caramel ABV bomb was too much for me. Interesting flavor but it taste more like a port or dessert wine then a beer. I drank this before Phil's tasting notes came out. If I had a do over I would have had this as a night cap. —by Daniel C

    Good to try once and a rare one at that but would never order/buy. A bit boozy, but let it warm up and it opens up to a blend of chocolate caramel sweetness. Glad to say I tried it. I wonder if it'll make my farts more flammable tomorrow...?—by Michael Bibbo

    Wow - ich über fiel aus meinem Sessel auf den ersten Zug. Dann begann ich zu lesen darüber. Gebraut, einmal im Jahr, 10 Monate gereift, dann in Flaschen abgefüllt. Betrachtet man diese Flasche, sagt es 2014. Das bedeutet dieses Bier begann seine Prozess fast dreieinhalb Jahren. Ich habe das Gefühl ich gespeichert habe soll es für ein paar Jahre nur zu sagen, dass ich ein Fünf Jahres altes Bier trank. Es wurde einfach immer besser, wie ich es trank. Mehr süße, mehr Malz, komplexere Aromen. Wenn ich jemals wieder die Chance bekommen... Ich werde eines der seltensten Biere der Welt grab!—by Yokim

I actually drank one of these as a Junior in college when I couldn't tell a Hop from a Malt and remembered it being horrible.

    Samichlaus from Eggenberg...translation, "Santa Claus had too much eggnog". I love the fact that I had the opportunity to try this elusive brew, but I am having some trouble getting it down. I will finish it, though!—by Jen H.

    Aged beautifully. Santa wishes he'd come down the chimney and find this (along with a sammich). At a very deceptive 14%, he'd probably only make it down about 3 chimneys, say F it and wind up on someone's couch. I loved this one. —by Dave "SD" Cook
