Samuel Adams Double Bock (Imperial Series)

9.5% ABV. Doppelbock from the Boston Beer Company in Massachusetts. Never been a big Sam Adams fan but heard about their Imperial Series and supposedly this one was one of the best in the series, so I decided to give this one a whirl. Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours medium brown with a reddish tinge along with a thin off-white head. Very malty aromatics, some notes of apple juice, slight whiff of alcohol, and a nice brown sugar note. Full malt flavor along with some apple juice and brown sugar as well. Malty with a nice warming finish and crisp mouthfeel. While not a bad offering from Sam Adams, I will not seek this one out again.
