COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This very rich and malty double bock is complimented with a double addition of pure chocolate. The first chocolate addition was in the brew kettle and the other after fermentation. Malty sweetness dominates the flavor accentuated with a smooth, warming alcohol character. This double chocolate double bock is a real charmer. (Arlington location)

Cavie (3795) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Tap in Arlington. Clear dark orange color. Mine has zero head but Fratto’s has a small beige ring. Aroma of baker’s chocolate, sweet grain and hot cocoa. Taste is light on the dark chocolate with bitter overtones. Finish is slightly dry but not overbearing. Decent but is lacking the rich leafy maltedness that comes from a solid doppel.

Growler thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a small white head over a brown body. Aroma is chocolate (powdered), nutty, fruity esters, earthy. Taste is nutty, chocolate, rotten fruit, metallic, cocoa nibs. I homebrewed with cocoa nibs in secondary before and it gave me an off flavor that I sort of notice in this one.
