So am I the only one who finds this Austrian beer to be total shite? I realize that a beer with 14% ABV is going to have a strong alcohol taste but Samichlaus is so cany sweet and lacking in refinement that it is just horrid. I've had several Scotch Barley Wines which were of similiar strength as well as a wonderful stout with strong coffee and chocolate flavors which tasted great yet Samichlaus is the first beer I couldn't finish in a long time. It was that bad. I tried to give it to my beer loving dog, who normally goes ape shit for any beer, but he also turned his nose up at it. What gives? Other Austrian beers I've had were good but this brewery seems to be run by a retarded gnome or something.

Ever tried crucial brew from Jamaica. Now that's vile and it was about 35% by vol. :vom:

Crucial brew? No, I've never heard of it though I wonder how the hell they get 35% with out distillation. To my knowledge even the special high alcohol yeast dies at aroundd 20% and the only ways to get it higher is to distill it or use the 15th century German method of bocking.
