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).

2003 Edition (if this even matters)

Pours a dark raspberry brown with a light tan head.
Smells of fruity (grapes) wheat malt, with a faint hop backing (tettnanger?). Taste is spicy, fruity, with a crisp wheat feel. Light bitterness in the finish. Not bad, but it could be tastier (and better).
