46. Samuel Adams Double Bock

Bought a 4-pack of Sam Adams Imperial Series and this is the only one that I had not tried before. Nice dark color with the right amount of carbonation and a nice head that lasts. This is a very sweet beer with lots of caramel flavoring but also has a high alcohol content which makes this more of a sipping beer. If you choose to have this with a meal I would recommend a good steak – would not go well with pizza, burgers, etc.

Brewers Website: Samuel Adams
Brewers Description: Intense and warming, a meal in a bottle. One cannot help but appreciate Samuel Adams® Double Bock’s huge malt character.  We use an enormous amount of malt, half a pound per bottle, to brew this intensely rich lager.  Its deep brown-ruby color is all made in the kettle, no black malt is used, resulting in a rich sweetness that is free of the rough taste of burnt malt.  All that remains is the velvet smooth flavor and mouth feel of the two-row malt. Samuel Adams Double Bock’s intense malt character is balanced with a subtle piney, citrus hop note from the Noble hops.
