    Sam Adams Triple Bock

    Have there been only three vintages of this beer? 1994, 1995, and 1997?

    From the Samuel Adams website: "There have been only three vintages of Samuel Adams® Triple Bock®: 1994, 1995 and 1997, but bottles can still be found in the marketplace."

    The book "Homebrew Adventures" by Papazian has a recipe for Sam Adams Triple Bock in it.

    From the reviews I've seen, a $1 bottle of Kikkoman's is a close substitute.

    I'll take the soy sauce...at least I can use it to cook with. The Triple Bock was, IMO, a MAJOR disappointment.

    It did not seem to age all that well. A noble experiment I guess.

    yep, bought two bottles back in 01. drank half of one...poured out the rest and the other bottle will likely never be opened!

    To most people, the bottle is worth more than it's contents.

    To age well you need to start out with at least a foundation of being good.

    On one hand it was a disaster, or so it would seem by the comments on here, on the other hand it's good to see them branch out and try new things. The more BB tries to be like the big guys the less unique they are. They are in dangerous ground, too small to be able to compete with the big swill producers (I think), but too big to be considered a local, craft brew. Especially with a good portion of their "Boston" beer made in........Ohio!
