Sam Adams Black Lager
 
Just found it a few days ago. Not a bad beer IMO. Nice Chocolate flavor, low hops. Anyone else tried it and if so, what did you think?

One my favorite Sam Adams brews. The same for my brother and dad, which works out nicely. Since it's not always in the store around here, all of us pick it up when we see it and share.

Perhaps one of my favorite offerings from SA. A little more malty than the typical schwarzbier but it is very tasty.

That's the beer that hooked me on darker beers. I've taken 5 or 6 shots at replicating it but not there yet

Out of the 3 different SA beers I've tried, that one was the best.

I love it! Also the Winter Lager, and Double Bock are my favorite SA brews.
Almost forgot the Holiday Porter and Old Feziwig all of these are seasonal brews I can get the Black Lager anytime.

If you like the Black Lager you'd probably like their Holiday Porter too plus it has more alcohol:drunk:

A friend brought me one on Saturday and I really enjoyed it. Probably the best SA I have had...

Slightly off topic but I'm just finishing a 12 pack of SA's latest seasonal offering, their White Ale. Nice, easy drinking beer.

Still waiting to find the Longshot beers here in Hawaii. Looking forward to tasting them as well. Got lucky with the Black Lager as I went to a different conveinance store looking for some hefe and found it instead.

If you like the White winter ale try Blue Moon's White Belgian I like Sam's but I think Blue Moon's is much better.
