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.

I can’t say enough about this beer! It’s perfection in a bottle. They only make this every several years and I finally got my hands on some this year! It is chocolaty and malty and perfect. I can’t say it enough. TRY IT!

an amazing beer, from the deep color to the complex flavors, only got better as it warmed up. A slightly bitter chocolate taste that sweetened quickly with just a hint of vanilla. Good earthy aroma...not an everyday brew but one i will let age for a while
