    Sam Adams Triple Bock

    I came across a bottle of Triple Bock the other day for $6.50, and seeing as how I have not seen the beer for some time, it seemed like a good deal.

    Upon getting it home, I determined that it tastes the same as remeber; good, but very, very strong.

    So the question here is:
    How does Jim Koch and Co. make this monster? According to the web site they use two row, crystal 60, german noble hops, and ALE yeast (guess it really is not a bock, huh?). Any info is appreciated.

    some say it's not really a beer.
    My posts are definitive. Reality is frequently inaccurate.

    Whatever it is, it sure is tasty in small quantities
