UPDATED: DEC 20, 2015 Sounds nice, as much as I like bock and chocolate both. This pours a dark brown with slight tan head. Minimal chocolate with light malt and caramel sweet aroma. Much more chocolate comes through in the taste, finishing fairly clean and a little dry. Not bad..

A good chocolate flavor. Looks really good in the glass. Not a great porter but solid.

Clear dark pour with medium sized tan head. Delicious chocolate & dark malt aromas and matching taste. Easy to drink and balanced flavor profile. I think I prefer this over a lot of sweet stouts. Nice beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from Winter Classic Variety pack. Served in tulip glass. Dense but thin off white head dissipates fairly quickly. Some moderate lacing. Beer is very dark in color, almost black. Aroma is on the weaker side, mostly malts with some faint cocoa. Taste is malts and is medium sweet with a touch of bitterness. Significant notes of smooth chocolate. Medium bodied beer with light carbonation. A very smooth beer, with a clean finish, just lightly lingering. Overall a good enjoyable beer. Probably the best out of the variety pack. Chocolate works well with the Bock style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle picked up at Byerly?s liquor store. Deep brown, nearly black in color. Short-lived tan head. Nose is slightly nutty with roasted malt characteristics. Some prevalent chocolate notes too. Slight smoke contained within. Taste has less in your face chocolate than others. Leans on roasted malt, with subtle peat notes, and a dark chocolate bitterness. A fake chocolate quality that really pops up towards the finish. Thin mouthfeel that?s to the beer?s detriment. Not as good as it should be.
