Samuel Adams Winter Lager is a dark wheat bock. Bock beers are traditionally strong dark lagers.

This beer is a lager, and hence not a Weizenbock (an ale).

A - Deep copper. Very clear. Fluffy off-white head.

S - Sweet grains. Alcohol. Slight spiciness. Nothing is very dominant.

T - Smooth and full similar to Boston Lager. At the finish the spice is very clear on the front of the tongue. Sweetness from the grain. Alcohol bite at the finish. This tastes less-complex than I remember it tasting in the past.

M - Somewhat thick and chewy. Alcohol bite is clear. Carbonation is moderate.

O - I look forward to this every winter. Say what you will about Sam Adams products but I look forward to knowing that any bar/restaurant will have a quality beer on tap.
