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.

Cerveza color oscuro. Aromas de maltas tostadas, café ,dulce y chocolate. Al paladar se percibe una consistencia semi espesa. Se perciben notas a café, dulce y chocolate con un agradable balance entre estos elementos. En el retrogusto permanece el sabor a chocolate y dulce. Excelente cerveza perfectamente balanceada. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was not my style: too much chocolate and too little beer. It came off as a creamy mixture of beer and cocoa.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Black with dark brown highlights and medium/small beige head. Aroma is chocolate, medium/light body, lower carbonation, and small bubble lacing. Taste is chocolate and some roasted malt. Pretty good beer.

jsporrer (1147) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Pours a semi clear dark brown with a foamy tan head. Medium carbonation and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malts and dark chocolate. Thin to medium body with a slight tingling on the tongue. Decent cocoa flavor with a smooth finish. Flavors are OK but not very bold and don’t linger long.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear ruby black color with a large tan head. The aroma is malt and chocolate. The taste is mostly chocolate and some malt. An average beer.

No minced words here. This brown Bock is hugely chocolaty. Feel is rich yet there’s still a light-medium carbonation that comes through. Chocolate malt flavor with lesser notes of caramel, vanilla, nuts, and fruits. Yes, it is sweet but it avoids the pitfall of being cloying. It’s a good fix for a sweet tooth.

I started off liking this, even though it was one of the most different beers I have had. Unfortunately, as I put down the first and moved into the second one, the chocolate taste built up on my palate and it was hard to drink the rest. Decent (and very interesting) for a few swigs, then rapidly goes downhill from there.
