Samuel Adams Imperial White - 10.3% ABV. Mead like. Heavy on the honey and wheat. Bold crisp alcohol note. Pungent fruit (plums and apples) and coriander notes. Admittedly not my forte' but it does invoke that throwback Medieval style robust fruit and wheat beer. Very strong. Bold. Thick. Pretty good. 3.5 out of 5.

An Absolutely amazing Imperial! So sad its be discontinued, but luckily I bought out the store for years to come. This beer is great off the shelf, and astonishing in taste years later. I have four year old bottles I open for very special occasions and the taste is similar to a fine port wine. in about 10 years when my stock is empty I will be upset with Sam Adams for their mistakable choice of discontinuing it.
