Review - Boston Beer Company - Samuel Adams Holiday Porter
"Introduced as a member of the Winter Classics Mix Pack in 2004, Samuel Adams® Holiday Porter with its rich malt complexity has become a favorite among our winter seasonal brews. In total, five varieties of malted barley are used in the brewing process including a variety of German malt called Carafa®. The Carafa® gives our Holiday Porter its smooth, roasted malt character. Add generous portions of imported hops to the mix and one has a brew that is both robust and high in drinkability.
Carafa® is a registered trademark of Weyermann Malt, Bamburg, Germany." -- Boston Beer Company
Sam Adams Holiday Porter pours to a brown, full, fizzy head. Strong lacing with long staying power. Aroma of sweet, chocolate malt. Initial taste is sweet and coal, with a medium dry finish. Chalky mouthfeel on the finish.
