Sam Adams Chocolate Bock

Deep brown with a hint of ruby and a creamy, 1-finger head, Sam Adams Chocolate Bock is beautiful to behold.  There is a whiff of yeast and cocoa in the opening “pish”, and a tangy, tartness about the bouquet.  Surprisingly, there isn’t much else to the bouquet.  I really had to search hard to find anything, but perhaps there was some Cocoa Krispies or Cocoa Hoots.  The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, and ahh, there it is, the chocolate I expected.  It now seems to be brownie-like with a bit of bunt or bittersweet chocolate in the finish.  I will say it’s OK at best, but I prefer chocolate notes that come from non-chocolate brew ingredients.  I’m not into it, and won’t finish it.
