COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This special release is brewed just for the holidays. For a new approach to a classic favorite, we added cherries to our traditional Chocolate Bock for a sweet, slightly tart note. Aged on a bed of dark cocoa nibs, the malty, chocolaty, and dark fruit flavors create a rich, complex beer perfect for winter. Cheers!

Bottle from Jungle Jims from notes. Pours a hazy brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, mildly tart cherry, light nutty character, chocolate, I did get the chocolate covered cherry more as it warmed, interesting enough.

Pours a muddy brown color. Aromas of cherries, chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is a subdued cherry taste, not a big as I expected. Finishes like a cherry tootsie roll pop. Surreal taste, quite remarkable. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel.

Rated on 10-28-2013 (Bottle from Krogers Marketplace-Fort Wayne, IN) This beer’s appearance is a large tan head that mostly diminishes, transparent ruby body, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is dark fruits and in your face cherries. The flavor is sweet, very cherry, chocolate, mildly tart, and dark fruits. The mouthfeel is smooth, watery and thin. This beer is light-medium bodied. The cherries are up close and personal which is a turn off for me. It is somewhat of a cloying beer and too artificial tasting.

Sampled on 12/31/2014. This fruit beer pours a dark brown/black color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent lacing and good retention. The aroma is fruity, bready and sweet, hints of cherry, chocolate, and dark fruit. A medium bodied fruit/bock beer. The malts are dark fruity, bready and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Nice balance of fruit, chocolate and malts. A touch sweet but very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with some cherry.
