Chocolate Bock

A: Deep Brown with ruby tinges in good lightning. Pours a magnificent fluffy head that fades into a fine light brown lacing.

S: The aroma was not as expected - I detected citrus rind, nutmeg, spices underlying a natural roasted malt character. There is a subtle (polar bear in a snowstorm subtle) hint of cocoa, but it is far from the dominant feature.

T: Did I just bite into a giant, carbonated Chocolate Bar? One of the reasons I love beer is how little aroma can correlate to actual taste; sometimes it can, sometimes it does no such thing. If the aroma was a short trip up the sugar and spice train, the taste was the Midnight Chocolate Express (Have you ever been to a Turkish Prison?)

The initial taste was strongly chocolate and a cascade of roasted malts; as your palate adjusts, you take in a hazlenut feel that gives it the sense of a carbonated jar of nutella; finally, after half a bottle, you're wondering if the sweet finish is beginning to taste a bit like chocolate cough syrup.

A drinkable and sweet beer, this makes an good evening dessert beer. It's almost too sweet to drink in any quantity, and I imagine after several of these you might lapse into a sugar coma.
