Ferris (4144) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Draft - Toasted malts, light molasses and mild chocolate. Jet brown with a thin head. Rich dark malts toasted grains and the chocolate is lost in the flavour. Very average bock.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2046) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 15, 2013
For some reason this is now being sold as W (double) Chocolate Bock. Bottle at the GJBF Osaka. A pleasant chocolatey aroma with a rich malty base underlying it and a golden brown color. The mouthfeel is nice but the flavor is slightly grainy which I don’t care for, grainy start then chocolate finish. Tasty but somewhat disappointing.

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.

KyotoLefty (6450) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 27, 2011
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.
