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.
