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!

This beer pours a murky deep brown color with a medium tan head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate and cherry. Light to medium body with a sweet cherry cordial flavor with notes of chocolate malt as well. The finish is chocolaty with a slightly artificial cherry aftertaste. Decent overall.
