3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is full of chocolate with some hints of vanilla and fruit. It pours a deep brown color with thin beige head. The flavor is very sweet. The chocolate overloads the palate. Its medium bodied and has a creamy feel to it. The beer isn’t bad but I prefer something more balanced.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: pours a 2" thick cream colored head that fades at a moderate pace. Color is a dark reddish-brown through which very little light can penetrate. Lacing is light.
Aroma: fairly mild, I do detect some mild milk chocolate, a hint of hops, and some roasted malts.
Mouthfeel: mouthfeel is between light and medium with a decent amount of carbonation. Finish is not very dry.
Flavor: there is no doubt about the chocolate presence in this beer. It is almost a little overwhelming to my tastebuds. I love to eat chocolate but drinking it in a beer I find myself enjoying only in rare cases. Other than the chocolate, there is some hop bitterness,but not much, in the finish and some roasted malt flavor in the middle of the taste.

I took one sip of this and I was blown away. It's a perfect marriage of flavors - the richness of the doppelbock and and the semi-sweetness of chocolate. While some Samuel Adams offerings have a bit more novelty, this one has more substance. They show respect to the style while adding some new takes on it.
