First Taste: Samuel Adams Cinder Bock

A Rauch Bock you say? If there is such a thing as a Black IPA, who’s to say there shouldn’t a smoky double bock as well? The two styles don’t often meet, but in the true spirit of innovation Boston Beer Co. has created this so-called ‘half-breed’ brew. Cinder Bock pours a shiny ruby red color with a thin white head. Aromas of smoke and caramel are most prevalent but a generous helping of both Noble and Hallertau Mittelfreuh hops certainly shine.
