Never had the legendary Triple Bock, but their Double Bock is certainly my favorite from them - for me, that beer is the standard for the style.
I am sure it will be the first of many. Welcome!
Cream stout and Lat 48 (2012) were pretty decent.
I am not overly impressed with their beers, HOWEVER that is not to say that they don't put out some quality beers consistently. I just don't search their beers out, typically I am looking for something else.
Black & Brew from the Christmas Pack last year.
Cream Stout, and when I could get my hands on it the Triple Bock was amazing
Off the top of my head I would have to say Winter Lager.
Oh also the Double Agent IPL.
Alpine Spring, Noble Pils, Boston Lager. Alpine Spring is my favorite from SA.
Without a doubt Honey Porter, sadly discontinued. Noble Pils is awful good, too.
double agent ipl, year round favorite
old fezziwig ale, seasonal favorite
Boston Ale was a favorite back in the day.
Octoberfest, Boston Ale (not sure if they still make that one), Old Fezziweg, and Noble Pils are my faves.
Cranberry Lambic is the worst. When I used to buy their winter samplers, I would take the CLs and put them in the crisper of my beer fridge where they would sit forever. We played a lot of darts in those days. The price for losing was drinking a CL. Ultimate motivation to win there.
Longtime lurker here. I thought I'd sign up and throw my two cents in on this. One of my favorites was Alpine Spring but it would seem my opinion is firmly in the minority since Alpine Spring is most likely discontinued.
Speaking of Sam Adams beers that are on the outs, it looks like Holiday Porter and Chocolate Bock won't be in the Winter Classics (now called Winter Favorites) variety pack this year. This year's lineup is Boston Lager, Winter Lager, Old Fezziwig, Cherry Chocolate Bock, White Christmas, and Juniper IPA.
Old Fezziwig is brilliant - and in my lonely opinion, a world class beer deservingly place in the top 100.
Few would dare say it, but there Imperial Stout is no slouch, and has something fairly unique going for it with the anise undertones.
I saw a new label come through for Holiday Porter recently. Is it slated for sixers?
I saw that label as well but I haven't seen anything about Holiday Porter sixers. I think they're doing sixers of White Christmas again.
Thirteenth Hour & Chocolate Squirrel are my favorites. I used to love Boston Lager but now find it just kind of blah. I remember it having hints of grapefruit in the taste years ago that I don't get anymore.
That's the only SA wit that I think is decent
I thought it was passable but I had the same issue with that beer as I do with all Sam Adams wheat beers - not enough body. They're just too thin.
I am partial to the Oktoberfest as a go to beer in fall. It's a little hoppy to style, but I like it. I also have to love the ol' Stock Ale. I think it's way superior to the Boston Lager
New World Tripel
Merry Mischief Gingerbread Stout
The Vixen and Thirteenth Hour were really good beers.
Cream Stout is what turned me to stouts, and more importantly to craft beers. Which led me to BA. Which led me to IPA'S. Which led me to better beer!!
Lat 48 - best
summer - least
Favorites: Fat Jack Double Pumpkin, Brick Red (Only on tap in Boston ), Chocolate Bock, Merry Mischief Gingerbread Stout, Black & Brew
Least Favorites: Holiday Porter, Porchrocker, Cherry Wheat, Coastal Wheat
2003 Utopias, extremely good.
Well-aged Triple Bock.
(Will try to get back to you later with a more serious answer.)
Mines gotta be the Octoberfest, followed by the Cream Stout and then the Boston Lager. They make lots of good ones. Lightman1
At this point in time, probably Boston Lager. It's amazing how many Sam Adams beers I used to love when I first got into craft, have just been "meh" when I've had them more recently.
I have a weakness for sessionable, hoppy beers, therefore...
Double Agent IPL
They make other solid beers, but I could make it a long time with just those four.
Utopias is my favorite sam adams beer by a landslide. I dont have a least favorite. Sam Adams does a really good job of brewing a broad range of beers that are all brewed according to its respective style guidelines.
Noble Pils and it's not even close.
Imperial Stout (Though not my favorite example of the style)
2. Triple Bock
3. Hazel Brown
4. Maple Pecan Porter
The one I'm going to drink to celebrate the Sox winning the pennant. Probably the most fitting would be a Boston lager. GO SOX!!!
