COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This special release is brewed just for the holidays. For a new approach to a classic favorite, we added cherries to our traditional Chocolate Bock for a sweet, slightly tart note. Aged on a bed of dark cocoa nibs, the malty, chocolaty, and dark fruit flavors create a rich, complex beer perfect for winter. Cheers!

I like regular chocolate bock better. Black pour with reddish hue. A one finger tan head. A strong fruit and chocolate aroma with a hint of vanilla bean. The flavor was cherry, toasted caramel malts and nut. It was good.

Sampled from the tap at EBF. Poured a hazy dark brown with a brown head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of a very sweet maraschino cherries with a backing chocolate note to cut the sweetness slightly. Flavor was strong with maraschino cherries with the chocolate coming out in the finish. Maraschino cherry note overwhelmed the beer slightly.

Pouring at the Saturday sessions of EBF. Pours a hazed brown to black with a thin beige head. Smells just like a cherry cordial from the drugstore, big cherry and chocolate, and a lot of sweetness. Medium bodied, creamy chocolate and toast. Light cherry. Nice and sweet, caramel and coffee, chewy, long smooth caramel and roast.
