CASTLE BREWERY EGGENBERG «Samichlaus» (14%) 6/6

imageThe aroma discloses a distinct cognaq influence. Brewed only once a year (on the 6th of December), one feels lucky having gotten the hands on this one. By the first sip, the highly noticable alive- character of the beer is revealed: Mature, but fresh. 10 months of fermentation together with the malts  used gives it a beautiful caramelish sweetness and fullbodied texture, followed by a spiritus tingle. A nice and edgy finish rounds up this floating gold- almost like enjoying a glass of fine cognac.
