The Samuel Adams winter sampler 12-pack is what gave me my love of winter beers. When in college, I was too broke to drink much other than the standard light beers. At Christmas each year, Santa would get me a Sam Adams winter sampler, and I would enjoy the hell out of the Winter Lager, Old Fezziwig Ale, and today's selection, the Holiday Porter. It's a delicious, malty, caramely, English style porter. It's especially delicious tonight, since I am officially done with work for the rest of the year, and I'm sitting on my couch watching Christmas Vacation not even caring about the fact that it's after eleven o'clock on a weeknight and I'm not yet in bed. Happy Winter Solstice, indeed, motherfuckers.
