I'm offended at the descriptiveness of this beer's label. You have to be more subtle. You can't just come out and say what your beer tastes like.
Speaking of subtlety, there is none in this beer. It is chocolatey like Hershey syrup and cherry-flavored like cherry coke. In other words, it tasted like it was loaded with sugars and artificial flavoring - no love. The 'Bock' part of the beer is just an afterthought. I can't review this like any other bock because the additives totally wreck it.

12oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
(A)- Pours a pitch black color. Produced some tan froth and bubbles.
(S)- A wonderful aroma of chocolate covered cherries with just a hint of raisins. Dessert in a glass.
(T)- A slight chalkiness meets a ton of chocolate covered cherries. Ever so slight medicinal(cough syrup) quality to the fruit, but subtle.
(M)- A good carbonation level. I like the balance aside from the chalky medicinal parts. It gets to be rather sweet as it warms.
(O)- The smell is glorious. Too bad the rest of the beer is not up to par.
