EGGENBERG SAMICHLAUS is from the oldest family owned brewery in Vorchdorf Austria, and started by monks in 1681. Although the brewery has been modernized as needed, this beer is still brewed using the castle's own spring water, and aged in the castle cellars until it is ready for bottling. Samichlaus is brewed once a year on December 6, and matured for 10 months.

Tasting Notes: A very special and interesting beer. Superb aroma, maybe better than its taste to be honest. A lot of fruit, alcohol, and caramel. Fairly complex and I can imagine this beer will age very well in the bottle for several years. I am going to stash a few away and find out!
