Soft and supple - though not a great deal going on. Smooth - low carbonation. Thin to medium body. Some berry, a little chocolate and a slight roast. Solid drinking, but a bit too quaint for the style.

Draught at Q-Brick as W-Chocolate Bock. Think it is the same one. Rich munich malt aroma with chocolate and caramel. Fragrant and nice. Black with a thin, fine, head. Slightly smoky flavor of chocolate and caramel with some wood. Very rich malt, yet not cloying in the least. Very nice bock indeed.
