Very smooth and drinkable...Slight hint of cherry with chocolate overtones...The color is dark and opaque with very little light through the glass when held up...Basically desert in a glass. I love it !!! I wish they had this in bottles instead of just draft so I could buy em up.

Strong aroma of cherry like a cherry cordial. Deep black in appearance like a stout. The taste though is out of this word strong dark chocolate flavor that is smooth and combines well with the cherry taste. Very malty on the palate and just enough carbonation to balance with acidity. Canít say enough good about this beer. I loved the chocolate bock last year and this just takes this to a new level.

12oz bottle. If you like those chocolate covered cherries you see around winter holidays and appreciate a darker beer this would be right up your alley. It tastes stongly of candied cherries with a solid dark chocolate finish.

Bottle. Smells of cherries and chocolate like the bottle says. Pours dark, canít see a thing through it. Taste is like cherries, but a sharper flavor, less like cherry candy and more like cough drops, due to the beer. The taste lives up to the name, but it seems like it could offer a little more. Still, what is there is pretty amazing.

Pours a deep near black with a deep brown tan. Aroma of maraschino cherries. Don't really get the chocolate in the aroma. The taste yields the chocolate in a big way. Cherries up front followed by deep rich cocoa. Good mouthfeel, nice finish. Not overly sweet. Very satisfying.

Poured from a draft into a pint glass at the San Diego Brewing Company. Black with a slight tinge of red (cherry). Inch of head. Nice amount of dark lacing on the top. Nice looking film on the sides that lasted throughout.
Smelled of chocolate malts with cherry fruits. Reminded me of Ben and Jerryís Cherry Garcia.
Tasted just like the nose, only better. Nice and smooth chocolate malts with that cherry backbone. Basically a Cherry Garcia.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Smooth, long finish.
I loved this beer. I originally had the look a 4.5, but dropped it down after some consideration. Iím a bit of a Sam Adams homer but this may have been the best I tried.

12oz bottle from winter seasonal box. Pours black with creamy beige head. Smells like a chocolate covered cherry. Smooth chocolate flavor with tart cherry notes. Full creamy mouthfeel. I love their original Chocolate Bock, and this is an interesting and flavorful twist.
