12 ounce bottle into pilsener glass, best before May 2013. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger fairly dense dark khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings to the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, cream, vanilla, roasted malt, light pear, toast, light nuttiness, and light herbal hops. Damn nice aromas with good strength and balance of dark maltiness and chocolate flavors. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, toast, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, dark bread, light pear, light nuttiness, and light herbal hops. Lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, toffee, caramel, vanilla, toast, roasted malt, light nuttiness, dark bread, and light herbal on the finish for a bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of roasted chocolate flavors and other malts; with minimal cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and slick mouthfeel that is good; very thick feeling considering the ABV. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice flavored bock style! Very robust and nicely balanced malty roasted flavors with chocolate; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering. Definitely a dessert beer.
