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 worlds 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.

Dark with no head. Aroma strong with bakers chocolate and maybe a little coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is even stronger with dark chocolate. Its somewhat one-dimensional with the chocolate. As it warms, its gets very sweet. Too sweet for beer. Its alright, but NOT worth $16 a bottle.

Dark, flavorful, with a delicous smell, pours nicely. Slightly overpriced, but worth the try.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Black pour. Smal,l bubbly, off white head settles quickly. Definite chocolate in the nose, roasted malt and hints of coffee. Chocolate flavor and aroma becomes more dominant as it warms. Only hints of roasted malt in the flavor, touches of coffee also. Lot of chocolate. Medium/ full body. Good dessert beer.

Im pretty pissed that I paid $17 for this bottle - it wasnt worth $7. Very disappointing. It wasnt even that good - in fact, I didnt even finish my glass.

Krausen (102) - USA - FEB 18, 2005
Rich chocolate flavor and very smooth. A little sweet but I suppose it is appropiate for a chocolate beer. Price tag is outrageous, probably will not purchase it again because of that.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2005
Reddish brown color...not much head. Aroma is chocolate and slightly roasted coffee beans. Flavor is milk chocolate, hops and sweet malt. Not really worth the $13 for the bottle...but pretty darn good.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Deep brown with hints of red. Tan head fades quickly. Some lace. Aroma is mild, but has chocolate and malt. Flavor is what Ovaltine would be like as a beer--lots of chocolate, lots of malt.

Shag (2879) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2005
Got a draft for $5, so how is it the bottle is $15 at the store? Well I wasnt paying $15 but I could swing the $5. Anyways a brownish black appearance with little head and excellent lacing. Not much going on besides the chocolate. Like a hersheys syrup beer. Very very sweet and malty. As I am still a sucker for Yoohoo Chocolate Drinks I actually enjoyed this. Not complex in the least but a good sipper.

On tap Pizza Port Carlsbad: Quite delicious after a few slices of pie. Very rich sweet malt. Thick rich body, quite pleasant. Good stuff.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 6, 2005
Dark black/brown color with very small dark tan head. Aroma is faint, but with malty and slight chocolatelyness. Flavor is smooth and malty, with a bit of alcohol early on, caramel, vanilla in the middle, and a faint chocolate note towards the finish. Faint sweetness throughout that makes for a nice rounded flavor. Overall a very nice brew, chocolately but not overwhelmingly so.
