3.65/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This poured a ruby red but presented itself quite black in the snifter. As I held it to light I could see the rubiness in the corners. The head was small and dissappated quickly but I found considerable lacing.

I found hints of powdered chocolate in the scent but the single biggest flaw was simply how weak the aroma was. I had to try very hard to find the chocolate tones.

The taste was nice, chocolate notes, with a light malt backbone. Less overt in the chocolate but still quite noticeable, there were some burnt malt qualities. The mouth is thin, nothing special. I liked this Chocolate Bock but it did not set itself apart from others.
