Hopped and Bothered; Happy New Beer


Brauerei Schloss Eggenberg -- Samichlaus Classic Bier
Alcohol content 14%. It pours as thick as cold maple syrup. The scent is strongly solvent and alcoholic, with plenty of caramel and dark fruits packed in there. This is a hefty one. The first sip is like being smacked in the face with a Maple Tree. There is no carbonation save for tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.

Sweet. Super sweet. Like sweet tooth sweet. Dar cherries. Fig. Raisins. Brown sugar and a whole dose of alcohol on top of it. The mouth feel is like chugging a glass of syrup. Thick. Creamy. Heavy. This beer is complex, weighty and so potent that it nearly knocked me out.

The alcohol is so strong, it nearly overpowers everything else.

3.5 out of 5.

Happy New Beer!
