This iconic winter brew got its start in Switzerland and was more at home in long-forgotten cellars and lore before Schloss Eggenberg revived it for the ever-since fawning masses. Brewed only once a year on December 6th, Samichlaus is aged for a full 10 months before bottling.
Aroma and palate match step-for-step with light malty notes of vanilla, toffee, chocolate, oak – suggesting matured brandy in its character. At 14% ABV, this gem can be cellared for years to come, allowing its forceful flavor to grow in nuance and subtlety.
