Game Day Beer Review: Sam Adams' Infinium Biere de Champagne
(10.30% ABV) Well, I finally had it: the Sam Adams Infinium. It's not every day you drink a $20 bottle of beer.
Stashed away in the upper reaches of my wine refrigerator, with the large formats and the bottles of champagne, this particular bottle had rested for several months, along with the thought gnawing away in the back of my head the entire time: Infinium needs to be drunk prior to July 2011. But what's the right occasion? In the end I decided it's kind of like the US Supreme Court's definition of pornography: you'll know it when you see it. And that occasion finally arived, along with an unexpected visit from some out-of-town friends, this past weekend. But would the bottle live up to the considerable hype?
