On tap at the brewpub 6/8/08: Pours a transparent dark copper mahogany with a thin ring of light tan head. Aroma of big cocoa and milk chocolate with some sweet caramely German malt. Body starts fairly full and dark caramely chocolatey sweet with good balance and complexity throughout with lots of unique milk chocolate flavor. True to style and very enjoyable.

this beer was very good. Rich, heavy malt flavor. And it packs a punch. Has this on tap and I’ll look for this one again..

On tap at the brewery. Pours a translucent brown with amber notes and a medium creamy off white head that laced. Aroma of some dark fruits, cereal grains, chocolate, malty and sweet. Flavor of Tootsie Rolls, some dark fruits, sweet maltiness, nuts and light toffee.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. The nose caresses a dry, dusty chocolate powder in cake donut forum through a bit of alcohol. Pours a ruby-tinged brown, mostly clear with no head. Flavor is saccarhin and mostly of a singular chocolate liqeur sensation. Itís not a terrible cocoa flavor, moving in reduced middle darkness, but itís sweet, saturating and piquant. The flavor just penetrates the palate immediately and satiates any desire to have more, leaving this with little drinkability.

straight dutch alcoline, a bit strange like licking a 9 volt. a bit short on body but a good amount of carbonation. a sweet finish, oh ya and not much of a head.

Draft @ Bullfrog. Pours a clear, dark amber color; light khaki head with fine-bubbled lacing. Coffee, chocolate, and red fruits in the aroma; somewhat reserved. Medium mouthfeel: nicely carbonated; chewy chocolate and nougat; wet malts and dried red fruits underneath; raisins; drinkable and reasonably flavorful bock. Medium finish: toasty malts, breadiness, and some lingering sugar and nougat.

kramer (5827) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2008
10 oz, at brewpub. Pours a mahogany brown body with a small quickly fading beige head. Nice slightly sweet and grainy malt nose with hints of cocoa nibs and brown sugar. Sweet chocolate malt and honey up front with a lingering light roast and coffee finish. Pretty clean tasting. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, just shy of sticky, with fine fizzy carbonation that cuts through the sweetness pretty well. Overall, pretty nice, if you prefer the sweeter side of things.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2008
In short: A sweet syrupy un-chocolaty lager of some kind
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear brownish copper body with almost no head
In long: Sweet beer with a strong maple syrup taste, toffee candies, some caramel. This Chocolate Bock barely has any chocolate flavour at all. Felt like a syrupy sticky maibock. No hops to balance it off, digestive-like syrupiness. There was something wrong that I cannot describe. All I can say is that this is an experiment gone wrong. Alcohol apparent at only 6.8%. Long alcohol and maple syrup finish. This thing was so wrong that I even doubled-checked with the waitress if I was served the right beer and if it was supposed to be like this. This is like my recording artist attempt, they tried their best at something different but failed miserably.

Draught at the brewery. Murky dark plum brown colored body with a small filmy head. Sticky, decadent, rich chocolate syrup, oh my god... amazingly rich, sweet, decadent, delicious... a fantastic dessert beer. The chocolate evolves over the tongue from sweeter up front to drier and slightly bitter over the back, with a lingering, dry, softly puckery finish. Super super rich chocolate and malt sweetness but nowhere near overly sweet. Iíd love to drink this with cake. mmmm...
