Default Sam Adams Triple Bock

About 8 to 10 years ago my brother bought a case of Sam Adams Triple Bock. He hated it and it has sat in our basement ever since. My understanding is that SA Triple Bock ages well.

I was going to try and sell it it's not really a taste I enjoy.

Any opinions?

8 years ago would out its profuction in 2000, or 1998 if you go back to years. I thought that stuff came out in 1994 or so?

Did they make it for several years or was it old when your brother bought it?

We had a bottle a couple years ago and it was past its prime according to some of the more refined pallates at the table.

I've never liked any of the SA big beers

I'll save you the trouble: Go to the fridge and grab the soy sauce bottle and some maple syrup. Tilt head back, pour contents of both bottles into mouth. Enjoy.

Yeah, it is some *interesting* stuff. I'm glad I tried a bottle but wouldn't get it again.

According to Beer Advocate:

Quote:
Though the little cobalt bottles still decorate the shelves today, this beer only had 3 vintage releases; 1994, 1995, and 1997. Brewed with two row malted barley, water, Noble hops and yeast, along with maple syrup, it was then aged several months in oak whiskey barrels before being bottled. At the time it was considered the world's strongest beer, and a precursor of today's Extreme Beers.

My guess is that it is the 1997 which means it's been sitting in my basement for 11 years. Wow.

I've seen it for $10 a bottle which I would gladly take.

I was at a benefit a couple weeks ago and won a his and hers basket of beer and wine in the silent auction. One of the bottles was the 1994 version. From all the negative comments I have heard regarding this beer I am kind of afraid to even try it.

That has always been my impression.

still to expensive IMO.

they were clearing some out here a little while back for $3 or $4 a bottle.. figured what the heck and gave it shot. by far the worst "beer" i've ever tried. i tried about 2 shots worth and tried sipping it and it was just horrible so i passed it around to my buddies until the bottle was eventually gone.
