Bottle. Pours a dark reddish color with rosy highlights. Beige head. Aroma is lots of cherry notes, and some roasted malts. Flavor is also lots of cherry mixed with some sweeter chocolatey notes. Wow this is actually pretty good. Well balanced.

Pours a dark brown - held up to the light there is a reddish hue, like a Dr Pepper. Nose is a cherry explosion...I liked it, but was worried this would taste artificial and overly sweet like the Sam Adams Cherry Wheat. That wasn't the case...yes, the cherry taste is strongly present, but it is nicely balanced by the chocolate and roasted malt. A good dessert beer.

Samuel Adams Cherry Chocolate Bock is a unique brew that is better left to dessert sharing with a friend. Nice cherry aroma rising from a dark pour with a nice head. Taste is like those chocolate-covered cherry candies -- very sweet, and it hangs on the palate a little too long. Cherry Chocolate is ok for an occasional treat or change of pace. closey22 (2032) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Subtle. Nice blend of the choc. & cherry Aroma is weak and metallic,but the fllava is nice, although Mott like a true bock. It is a bit watery for a bock. Try it, it’s not bad at all. Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2011
On tap at my house. Bittersweet chocolate on the nose. Very malt forward slight roast. Cherry soda/subtle dr pepper tastes. Really well made. Nothing overly pronounced. Easy to drink multiples

Pint draught. After a nice display, the head dissolves to thin brown sand covering most of the center with a drift ring around the glass leaving some frosty lacing over a dark red body some shades lighter than opaque. Aroma is cherry bomb with some apple and vanilla chocolate notes. Taste delivers strong chocolate and cherry cough syrup. Taste is masked by the aroma, but that’s all good. But the taste is sweet. Palate is creamy and full. Overall enjoyable as a cherry soda and minus points for slight cloyishness. boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Draft at liberty union bar and grille. Pours clear black with minimum head. The aroma Is sweet cherry, light chocolate, overall very sweet. The taste is medium cherry, light chocolate. Pretty much nailed the title. BrewBoxer (2657) - New York, New York, USA - APR 4, 2013
Draft at the pony bar in NYC. Deep black/purple color. Smells like a bock off the bat. Taste hits you with fruitiness and sugar. I taste the cherry and slight chocolate. Interesting

On tap at Pete’s Place. Dark red color. Essentially no head. Very syrup like. Artificial cherry juice flavors dominate this one. Better than I thought it would be. cbfobes (2885) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2013
12oz bottle from the 2013 Winter pack, pours a very dark brown with a red hue in the light and an off white head, not quite tan or brown, aroma is pretty much dominated by the cherry, a little bit of the chocolate sweetness comes through, but mostly cherry, the flavor is much of the same, a lot of cherry on the front end with some of the sweetness of chocolate in the finish, doesn’t really taste or smell that artificial and that’s what I was expecting coming in, not something I would want to slam a couple of but enjoyable.
