3.06/5  rDev -12.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Pours a dark brown color with ruby edges and a finger of tan head that dissipated almost immediately. The nose is reminiscent of Cherry Coke. The taste is dominated by maraschino cherries. There is only a faint hint of chocolate and no true bock qualities to this offering.

The body is too light for the style. The finish tastes fake and medicine-like.

In the Spring of 2011, I had this offering on-tap and enjoyed it thoroughly. I thought that it had definite bock qualities, a heartier body and a flavor profile that was far more balanced than the version available in the 2013 SA Winter mix case.

I certainly hope that SA either goes back to the basic Chocolate Bock for the 2014 version or pulls out the old recipe for another attempt at the Chocolate Cherry Bock.
