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.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2005
A chocolate brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of milk chocolate. And the flavor is very sweet with notes of chocolate, alcohol, and liquid caramel.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2006
(Bottle 75 cl) Pours a beautiful mahogany with a warm, reddish glow and a creamy, off-white head. Distinct chocolate in the nose. Rather light-bodied with sweetish, roasted malt and loads of chocolate accents - more sort of milk chocolate though. Absolutely no bitterness. Rather delicate, but probably only to be enjoyed in small quantities - could easily get cloying. And it really hasn’t got much to do with a Bock. 150306

Bottled. Dark ruby red colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma of chocolate, plum, sour fruits and hops. Flavour is chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. Some bitterish notes in the finish, but mostly chocolate only in the flavour.

Opaque black - brown beer, short lived tan head. Crispy palate, dry. Smooth dark malt but quite papery. There is indeed a chocolate streak and a fair bit of marmite. Minerals before the crisp dry finish. A little prune in the aftertaste.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2006
Dark brown color; the head is not persistent. The aroma initially shows some dark chocolate, then some vanilla and tobacco; in other words: quite artificial. The mouthfeel is initially thin, with some residual sweetness, some chocolate impression, and again some tobacco. Enjoyable, but somehow… odd.
