About This Beer
One glance at that enormous ABV, and you know this isn’t your average Lager.
Its thick pour carries scents of caramelized brown sugar and toffee, while the sip is full of sweet, holiday spice from Hoppin’ Frog’s Swiss Lager yeast.
As you drink, subtle notes of dark fruit, butterscotch, and nutmeg will dance like goody-gumdrops across the palate. It’s so desserty, you could leave it out for Santa instead of cookies. But once you get a taste, you probably won’t want to.
Malty Sweet Rich
nice and malty. hides the abv well.
These Swiss celebration lagers are always a touch too sweet for me, but this one grew on me as I drank it.
Sweet, caramel, almost butterscotch, malty.
hides the abv, sweet. keep buying
. 2022 vintage; 14.1% ABV. Ruby red pour. Dense, creamy tan head. Rich, earthy, toasted malt aroma. Big bittersweet notes upfront. Boozy and intense. Sweet caramel, dried fruits and sherry-like notes. Wonderfully complex. Quite interesting. Very reminiscent of the Schloss Eggenberg Samichlaus Classic I had the other night. Yum!
