yeah, the holiday porter is the only ale in the winter pack that I liked.

Screw sam adams for making ****ty beer in bottles that are easy to delabel for the homebrewer......

holiday porter wasn't as bad, but it was much better in earlier years.

Something went terribly wrong with Fezziwig this year. NO aroma, no head, no...anything. It was like they took their winter lager (which is suffering this year as well) and darkened it a bit.

the lack of aroma was what killed me. i thought I just had a plugged nose; but my wife said the same thing.

I'm with you guys also, 1 mouthful and it was assigned to the missus...not for me. Although, i'm not a huge fan of fruit beers to start with - was looking forward to the porter.

I have found that several sam adams brews are different this year for some reason. The first was the octoberfest. Wasn't quite as malty as it has been in the past.

The largest change though was the cranberry lambic. I had one sitting in the fridge from last year and it was slightly sour, had a nice cranberry taste and kinda tasted like a mixed drink almost.

This year it tastes like maple syrup. No sour, No cranberry. Very weird. I will still drink them though . . . .
