Product description

The once strongest beer in the world is back ! Brewed only once a year on December 6. Samichlaus is aged for 10 months before bottling. This beer is perhaps the rarest in the world. Samichlaus may be aged for many years to come. Older vintages become more complex with a creamy warming finish. Serve with hardy robust dishes and desserts, particulary with chocolates, or as an after dinner drink by itself. Brewed under the exclusive licence of Feldschlösschen-Hürlimann-Holding, Switzerland.

“Doppel” means “double,” so the name "doppelbock" means this style is a bigger and stronger version of the lower-gravity German-style bock beers. Originally made by monks in Munich, this beer style has a rich, malty character and pairs very well with food.
Doppelbock (AKA double bock for non-German speakers) is a stronger version of traditional bock that was first brewed in Munich by the Paulaner Friars, a Franciscan order founded by St. Francis of Paula. Typically, doppelbock is high in alcohol and sweet, especially compared to other lagers.
Doppelbocks live up to their "double" name, with quite a bit more alcohol than standard lagers - usually ranging between 6.5% and 8% ABV.
