Samuel Adams Double Bock Brewed By the Boston Beer Company


Samuel Adams Double Bock Brewed by the Boston Beer Company in Boston, Massachusetts                      

Over the past 20 years, Samuel Adams Double Bock has become one of the Samuel Adams Brewery's most acclaimed beers. An enormous amount of two-row Harrington Metcalfe and Caramel 60 malts, half a pound per bottle, is used to brew this intense, rich lager. This beer is close to the idea of beer as "liquid bread." Its deep mahogany color, velvet smooth, rich yet slightly citrusy flavor and mouthfeel is a testament to the beer's balance. In the past, Samuel Adams Double Bock has been available for a short six-week period. The brewers have decided to make it available year-round with the other Big Beers in the Samuel Adams Imperial Series.  2013 Gold Medal Winner at the Great American Beer Festival.

Beer Review by Beer Advocate:
Appearance - A beauty! Features the darkness of bock, with more red than usual. Very nice looking. Good, thich head that stuck around for a while.

Aroma - Very nice mix of hops, cocoa and a sugary aroma. Not a cheap sweetener, but a very pleasant sweet smell. Combined w/ cocoa to make a very light chocolate aroma.

Taste - Wonderful taste. All the aforementioned aromas without being too sweet. I find some bocks to be a bit on the sweet side. Not so in this case. Packs a punch at 9.5 ABV, so the booze is noticeable. But not in a bad way.

Mouthfeel - Very good, but this is the only area I'd approve. An almost perfect thickness for a bock/doppleback, and a very nice, sweetish aftertaste. I would just like a bit more carbonation, as I like the bubbly feeling.

Overall - A very good beer. Hadn't had this beer since I was probably 19-20, so I couldn't appreciate it as much as I do now. A delicious dopplebock w/ tremendous flavor, a good punch and wonderful aftertaste and drinkability.
    

                        
Boston Beer Company Story
The Boston Beer Company began in 1984 with a generations-old family recipe that Founder and Brewer Jim Koch uncovered in his father's attic. After bringing the recipe to life in his kitchen, Jim brought it to bars in Boston with the belief that drinkers would appreciate a complex, full-flavored beer, brewed fresh in America. That beer was Samuel Adams Boston Lager(R), and it helped catalyze what became known as the American craft beer revolution.

Today, the Company brews more than 30 styles of beer. The Company uses the traditional four vessel brewing process and often takes extra steps like dry-hopping and a secondary fermentation known as krausening. It passionately pursues the development of new styles and the perfection of its classic beers by constantly searching for the world's finest ingredients. While resurrecting traditional brewing methods, the Company has earned a reputation as a pioneer in another revolution, the "extreme beer" movement, where it seeks to challenge drinkers' perceptions of what beer can be. The Boston Beer Company strives to elevate the image of American craft beer by entering festivals and competitions the world over, and in the past five years it has won more awards in international beer competitions than any other brewery in the world. The Company remains independent, and brewing quality beer remains its single focus. While Samuel Adams is the country's largest-selling craft beer, it accounts for only about one-half of one percent of the U.S. beer market.
