3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the International Great Beer Expo in Uniondale. Pours a clear deep brown that still allows light to pass through with a tan head. Pleasant aroma of cherries and chocolate. The flavor is black cherries with chocolate and a bit of caramel. Definitely a sweeter beer, which I enjoy. Medium bodied. An enjoyable beer for me.

(draught at Whiskey Cake) clear deep ruby-brown, few ine tan bubbles lining the edges. Nose of artificial cherry, sweet Chocolate malt, taste of chocolate malt, artificial cherry, cream, raw grain mash. The linger leaves something to be desired, but it’s not terrible. Just ok.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at gingerman plano. Pours a very dark amber/almost black with a thin off white head. The aromas are cherries, roasted coffee, chocolate. The mouthfeel is watery, bitter and a little syrupy with a medium body. This wasn’t a good beer at all. The cherries didn’t work well with the beer. Cheers!

Subtle. Nice blend of the choc. & cherry Aroma is weak and metallic,but the fllava is nice, although Mott like a true bock. It is a bit watery for a bock. Try it, it’s not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours brown, almost in porter territory. Aroma and flavor are dominated by cherries. chocolate is more subtle in the flavor, and not really apparent in the aroma. A nice light, clean malt sweetness contributed from the overarching bock style. For a bock- not so good. For a fruit beer- rather good (but I’ve still had better cherry chocolate beers where there is less cherry and much more chocolate; see Appalachian Chocolate Cherry Stout).
