Trib Beer of the Month: Sam Adams Imperial Stout
The Chicago Tribune has recognized Samuel Adams Imperial Stout as its beer of the month for March. Last year Samuel Adams launched its imperial series, which consists of three beers available in four packs: Imperial White, Double Bock, and Imperial Stout. Samuel Adams Imperial Stout is a take on traditional Russian Imperial Stouts, a style that originated in England in the 18th century. It is big, bold, and most importantly delicious.
What's in the bottle: Opaque brown-black color with a fine blanket of tan-gray foam. Rich aroma of vanilla bean, butterscotch and cocoa follow through on a soft, silky entry to a medium-to-full body with roasted nut, grain and fig notes. Finishes with cacao and peppercorn flavors. Big, yet balanced and very drinkable. Jerald Okennard, Chicago Tribune.
Samuel Adams has been very active in the beer world since their Imperial Series launch last year. They have a brand new spring seasonal which is now available, Noble Pils. It is a light and refreshing take on a German style pilsner. Samuel Adams will also be co-hosting Binnys annual homebrew contest on April seventeenth.
