3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle (Part of the 2010 Sam Adams holiday mixed case).
Pours a dark brown –as dark brown as it gets!, A very thick light brown head with moderate lacing.
One of the best looking beers I have had in 2010. Beautiful.
Smells of sweet chocolate.
Very chocolate-milk up front, complimented by a creamy texture and light carbonation, fading to light creamed coffee. Doesn’t really taste much like a bock .
Good drinkability . A very interesting beer, not a novelty beer.
Very chocolatey in a good way: not too sweet and with a dark chocolate backbone. Malt and yeast, slight roasted aroma. Pleasant aftertaste, surprisingly good beer.

Very nice chocolate brew. Smooth and easy to drink but without really any carbonation. Not overly chocolate but just the right amount. Good beer! thebeerbandit (91) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2017
Had with Mark and Sarah on an improvised beer night.
Look: almost opaque with a tan head. Label is kinda fun too.
Aroma: Really chocolate forward.
Taste: ridiculously chocolatey - like a YooHoo
Palate: Medium mouthfeel
Overall: This is a beer lover's version of a YooHoo and it's delicious. Pershing (608) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2017
Black pour with fast diminishing beige head. Not much carbonation. Silky smooth taste with vanilla and chocolate. Medium body with a filling finish. A good desert beer. markas101 (2580) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2017
Bottle, Ann Arbor, MI. Chocolate prune aroma. Heavy molasses with some bright hops. Long bright finish.

It pours black with a beige head. The aroma is big on chocolate with some vanilla. The taste is chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and fruit. The chocolate is definitely the star here. It's smooth. It's not too sweet. I wouldn't session it though. It's a good change of pace or dessert beer. BarelyCynical (33) - - DEC 10, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 Dark color and sweet aroma are give aways to this beers nature. Flavor is chocolate and Caramel. Good not great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Rex_Remes (300) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - DEC 3, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2017 (12oz bottle) AROMA: soft chocolate, nutty, bark/wood/forest APPEARANCE: deep dark reddish brown, almost black, mocha colored head TASTE: creamy chocolate, some coffee/mocha, a bit sweet, cream, vanilla PALATE: medium body, not extra heavy, creamy, smooth, touch of dark dryness on the end OVERALL: yummy, sweet, milky coffee and chocolate. Kind of like a dessert version of a stout. Something different and fun, but maybe not everyone's choice because of the sweetness. Mep3222 (1765) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2017
This is delicious for a Samuel Adams beer, cocoa roasted malt aroma and flavor. Full bodied smooth beer with slight sweet chocolate finish and cocoa bitter balance. Impressive. BeerBenji (23) - - DEC 2, 2017
A good bock, love the title for it. Definitely has some chocolate undertones.
