The holidays are nearing and the store shelves are chock full of winter seasonals and Christmas beers; I look forward to these brews all year round so I am very anxious for their release. Some of my favorites are (of course) Celebration Ale from Sierra Nevada and Yellow Snow IPA from Rogue, but one thing I am led to year after year is the Samuel Adams winter seasonal variety pack. It holds beers not normally found in six packs, one of which is the Holiday Porter - probably the best of the bunch. Chocolate Bock and Old Feziwig come close, but just don't make the cut. The beer is supposed to represent a style of porter that was very popular during Victorian times. The label just screams Ye Olde England with what seems to be a peasant bringing a barrel to the local pub.

The beer was first introduced in the variety pack back in 2004 and remains to be a favorite amongst consumers across the country. It is brewed with English fuggles and East Kent Goldings hops, along with a variety of malted barley including caramel, Munich, chocolate and the specialty German malt Carafa®. Flaked barley is also added to the brew to make all the ingredients work in harmony, creating a very robust and smooth drinking porter that is sure to be a favorite for dark beer drinkers all over. I love this beer and it's a bit of an inconvenience that we have to buy a variety pack to just get a few bottles of this magnificent brew. Consider this a cry for help, Sam Adams, and put this thing into six pack production for 2012. What do you say?
