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.

This one was a bit of a disappointment. Perhaps it’s just the strength of the other beers we tasted around this one, but this beer came off actually quite bland. The chocolate flavour was nice, but there just wasn’t much there.

Bottle. Courtesy of Willblake. A huge ammount of cocoa, deep roasted malts in the aroma. Poured nice black with a tan head. Flavor was good nice cocoa and a tad of vanilla and caramel in there as well. Palate was good pretty clean finishing. It was good but could have been a tinge better.

750mL bottle. Enjoy before: May 2006. A deep mahogany pour with a big, fluffy dark-khaki head that leaves thick rings of lace. A good bit of effervescence. Rich malty aroma with some vanilla, cocoa and chocolate. Medium to thin-bodied. A typically sweet and toasty malty bock base with ample amounts of cocoa and some milk chocolate flavors added in. This definitely gives it a very smooth quality. A slightly bitter finish with hints of black coffee. This beer gets a little too sweet by the end of the bottle. Not as good as I had hoped, but it’s still tasty.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Loads of milk chocolate in the aroma, notes of dark dried fruits too. Dark brown body with a small tan head. Very sweet chocolate flavor, light alcohol in the end. The chocolate is a tad too sweet for my liking.

madsberg (11775) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2005
Bottled: Reddish brown Brownish coloured head. Loads of chocolate in the nose and the mouth. Quite smooth and velvety. Light spiced. Is quite easy to drink dispite the heavy chocolate flavours. Sweet in the end. A bit old. Thanks Jeppe for sharing.

Ungstrup (38241) - 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.

3.2
Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Pours dark brown with an orange gleam and a fine though disappearing light brown head. Dominating cocoa aroma with characters of Oh Boy, rather sweet. Sweet milk chocolate flavor with notes of vanilla. A beer for desert. Pretty nice, but gets a bit cloying in the long run.

bipolarbear (6) - Paterson, New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2005 does not count
Aroma reminds me of Kulmbacher eisbock. Does not even come close to Brooklyn Chocolate Stout. Flavor reminds me of someone spiking it with Hershey’s syrup.. My bottle "expired" 3/2005. I’m glad I paid 10.99 for it because it is DEFINITELY not worth 15 or 16 dollars.
