Samuel Adams Triple Bock

Samuel Adams Triple Bock
Samuel Adams Triple Bock is the beer-creature from the black lagoon. Upon initial pour, I was sure that the bottle had a bad cork. No carbonation what so ever. Looks like a flat cola. Smells like soy sauce and old sweaty feet. Distinct chunks of black gunk all through the beer.

Took a couple of minutes to google this one, and found that my bottle wasn’t bad…it’s just awful beer. I took about two sips, and then poured it down the drain. I’m considering brushing my tongue to get the flavor off.

The only positive note I can add is that the bottle was pretty cool looking!

At least it was free! My buddy Ken got me this bottle for my birthday…I’m positive he had no idea how much it sucked. :) I have to give Ken a belated shoutout for hooking me up with the infinitely tastier Arrogant Bastard Ale that I recently reviewed. I had forgot that he picked that one up for me as well! Ken can be found on Twitter. You should follow him!

  1. What can I say…I’m hardcore. :) I Googled before I tasted.

    The downside is that I think it screwed my pallet up. I followed-up with a Weyerbacher Heresy (which I’ve never had before), and all I can smell/taste is the nasty soy.

  2. Interesting. I’ve been looking around for this after my friend, TheBeerNut, reckoned it was mind blowing.

    I reckon something as strong and deeply flavoured as that is probably going to be divided between “love it” or “hate it” camps. It sounds very interesting to me, but then I like odd, stale, funky flavours in extremely strong beers 😀
