If you haven't had a Samichlaus yet, you need to. It is the perfect company for a cold winter's night by the fire. From the bottle: "Samichlaus is brewed only once a year on December 6, and is aged for 10 months before bottling. It is one of the rarest specialities in the world. Samichlaus may be aged in the bottle for many years to come, as older vintages become more complex. Brilliant deep amber, complex dry toasted malt nose and huge intensely sweet palate." Deeply warming too (14% Alc).

"I was brought up with wine. My parents would give me a little bit of wine with water during our dinner, and I grew up looking at wine as liquid food. As a result, when I went to college and watched my classmates overindulging in beer, scotch, etc., I was surprised." - Robert Mondavi
