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.

Nearly black with ruby highlights. Thick brown head that leaves nice lacing. Wonderful aroma of chocolate, caramel, and cream. Smooth palate with moderate-high carbonation. If the aroma is wonderful, the flavor is spectacular. Dark fruit, chocolate, caramel, and a hint of vanilla. Rich, smooth, and absolutely delicious.

12 ounce bottle at home, winter mix pack. I love the aroma, you can smell the chocolate. Very smooth, light carbonation. Black is the color of this brew. Medium thickness as you can taste the chocolate. No after bite. Very nice beer! Don’t forgot to mention the malt in this beer. YummY

Pours a very brown color, very nearly black. Good head, beige color. Pretty good lacing.

Aroma is chocolate, and that’s about it. But smells great.

Tastes like chocolate. It’s sweet. If any bitterness, it’s from the natural chocolate bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Smooth. Pretty dry. Sweet. Thin. Tastes like a dessert beer.

Overall, while it is really one dimensional, it is delicious. I’d drink it again. I’d buy it and recommend it. Probably the perfect beer to take to a party, or to give as a present.

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.
