This is a blend of beers—some of which have been aged in a variety of wood barrels for 19 years—before being aged in finishing barrels sourced from around the world, including Bourbon casks from Buffalo- Trace Distillery, tawny and ruby Port casks and rum barrels from Nicaragua. The final product is deeply layered and fantastically complex, more like a fine Cognac…
No effervescence. Smells of vanilla, saddle leather, baked banana, baked apple, baked pear, oloroso Sherry, and at times brandy; a unique bouquet. Palate shows traces of caramel, nougat, candied nuts, marzipan, dried red fruits, palm oil and cocoa. Ends smooth and harmonious.
An intense tripel that definitely puts a Sam Adams stamp on the classically Belgian brew. Right off the bat, you can tell that it’s going to be a big and powerful sip as intense aromas of rich malt, apricot, orange peel and banana are accented with spicy notes of coriander, sweet spice and crusty bread. The palate offers additional depth and complexity through a…
Unfortunately, this brew can only be found within BBC’s Summer 12-pack. The golden glass brims with a serious head and leaves nice lacing behind with each sip. Crisp bready malts are countered by fresh earthy hop and soft floral notes on the nose and mouth. The brisk carbonation keeps the palate light and clean, resulting in a lively and refreshing swallow that…
This Belgian-style stout brewed with 13 ingredients is part of SA’s Barrel Room Collection, meaning it’s aged in Eastern European oak barrels and blended with the brewery’s Kosmik Mother Funk (a Belgian-style ale aged in oak for over six months), so there’s a definite soft tartness to the beer’s overall character. Notes of sweet spice, chicory coffee, bittersweet…
Pours a golden amber color with a substantial eggshell head that leaves behind decent lacing after fading. Moderate aromas of grassy, floral hop esters accented by notes of caramel malt; overall, fresh, somewhat sweet and very inviting. More resiny hop oil characteristics appear on the palate, accented by pine and roasted malt. Closes on a dry and mildly bitter…
Vibrant amber color with a substantial cream-colored head. Offers rich aromas of roasted malt, Portobello mushrooms and fresh-baked bread with hints of apricot jam and hop florals. The palate is full and creamy with flavors of clean cereal and malt backed by hints of maple, sweet spice, and hop oils. Exhibits excellent balance and integration, with a touch of…
Light amber in color with an apparent haze and a slightly pink foamy head. The initial aromas of soft spicy oak, sour cherry and earthy forest draw you in immediately, and transition through to the creamy mouth alongside the vinous profile and cocoa powder flavors. Superbly balanced with a delicately sour finish.
