Samuel Adams "Chocolate Bock"
Dunkler Bock (ABV 5.8%)

[Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a dark murky brown with a slight reddish hue and had a large (2-3 finger) thick creamy tan head that was fully lasting and had excellent lacing which allowed for a full coating on the glass.

The aroma was of dark roasted malts, a very mild resin hop and an earthy yeast with a nice note of dark chocolate, some caramel and a touch of dark fruit.

It tasted sweet, smooth and rather malty with a touch of caramel and cocoa at first, and then a nice strong dark mocha flavor took hold and engulfed the taste buds with just a mild note of dark fruit and a mild bitter tinge at the end.

Mouthfeel was just on the light side of full in body and quite creamy texture with a very soft carbonation.

Overall a very nice blending of flavors, letting one have an exquisitely tasty chocolaty experience!!
