COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams® partnered with Scharffen Berger Chocolate to develop their newest innovation, Samuel Adams® Chocolate Bock. Tettnang Tettnanger and Spalt hops were hand-selected from the world’s oldest growing area and combined with a complex selection of malts including two row Pale, Munich and caramel to create a rich and satisfying brew. This dark beer has a big, malty character that is combined with the subtle sweetness of chocolate. The chocolatiers at Scharffen Berger crafted an exclusive blend of chocolate for Samuel Adams® made with cocoa beans from Ghana called forastero. Samuel Adams® Chocolate Bock was aged on a bed of this chocolate to create its unique layers of flavor. As the beer matured, the fruity, tart, earthy and chocolate aromas were infused into the liquid to give the brew a complex, full-bodied taste with a velvety finish. A hint of vanilla was added to meld the symphony of flavors together. Due to legal restrictions, Samuel Adams® Chocolate Bock can not be sold in the states of Alabama, Louisiana, and Utah.

Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma is chock full of cocoa, a bit of coffee, and toasted caramel. The flavor is super sweet with a bitter, crisp finish. Quite a great after dinner beer.

Too sweet. Syrupy. Rated this with another app and BeerBuddy unfortunately won't let me import comments.

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.

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.

Pours a translucent brown on tai with thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma is chocolate and bready malts. Taste follows, thin and bubbly on the mouth. Decent, but nothing that awesome.
