Samuel Adams Chocolate Bock

Chocolate Bock poured a dark brown color with a finger width, tan head. The aroma is nice, mostly roasted malt with hints of chocolate. The body is the inverse of the nose. Tons of chocolate with a little roasted malt, and a touch of sweetness. Mouthfeel is smooth, with low carbonation. The finish is short and dry, with moderate bitterness.
Overall, a really nice beer, one of my new favorites from Sam Adams. The chocolate really shines, and works extrememly well with the velvety mouthfeel, and bitter finish. A complete beer that is balanced. blands well, and offers plenty, it is a shame it is not easier to find.

I hope Sam Adams puts the Chocolate Bock into six packs next year. Definitely the highlight of the Winter mix pack.
