The Super Bowl is just a few hours away. Was going to have a party and cook a turkey that's been in my freezer since around Thanksgiving, but that didn't happen. So I am getting primed for the game. Not sure who I am rooting for yet. Cardinals are the underdog, but I am pissed they got it all together and beat my Eagles two weeks ago. I should be a Steelers fan as I grew up in central Pennsylvania just a few hours from there, and all the locals were fans, but my family is from Philly and I am a die hard Philadelphia sports fan.
Sam Adams Black Lager is another from the Brewmaster's Collection. It's OK but certainly not the best of the bunch. Nothing like my beloved Sam Adams Cream Stout and the original Boston Lager (both of which I will be drinking more of later). The label says I should be drinking it with barbeque ribs--well I think I can make my evaluation without that.
It is a dark brew. It is also quite sweet and very smooth. I guess it's just not my favorite, and the standard I have for Sam Adams is very high. This beer beats tons of other dark beers, kicks their asses. But what I am trying to say is try it. You will like it and probably have more at some point in your life. I doubt this beer will be your #1 any time soon, but that doesn't mean it's not great.
Go Steelers, I guess.
