These were delivered to a bunch of editors throughout the office, compliments of Sam Adams. Considered an "extreme beer," this limited-edition concoction is meant to be enjoyed more in the manner of a cordial than a beer — snifter and all. It's also got a higher alcohol content than your typical brew (27 percent by volume). A few of us took small tastes, and it's much more along the lines of cognac, port or even a mild scotch, in terms of taste. It's syrupy and strong and probably good if you like that sort of flavor. It comes in a copper kettle and beer geeks aficionados are going wild for it. All that extra booze content comes at a cost: $150 per bottle. Available at specialty liquor stores starting this month.
