A - Vigorous pour into a pub glass. Thick dark body and super creamy off-white head. Lots of lacing. Nearly opaque! Looks good so far.

S - The first and foremost thing I smell is a chocolate covered cherry candy, like the ones they sell around christmas. It's almost identical actually. Sweet, tart cherry and smooth milk chocolate mingle in the air. Can't really smell much else, but I hope it tastes as good as it smells.

T - Big milk chocolate sweetness on the way in, a little maraschino cherry tartness on the way down, but unfortunately not very much in between. That being said, what I can taste is great. The flavor is rich and wholesome, very tasty. I can pick up on a little dark coffee, some cola sugariness, a little dried fruit, and even a hint of bran or dark bread. Good flavor, but I want more body.

M - Very thick and sticky, almost chewy, a perfect example of how a bock should feel, it's not runny or greasy or either, very full feeling.

O - Not a bad beer at all, good bock characteristics, and great flavor, but there's still some things missing here and there. The taste is great, but its lacking something, some more personality maybe. That being said, it's a fine after dinner beverage, and the cherry chocolate thing it's got going on is pretty solid. Another satisfactory showing from Sam Adams.

Beautiful in a glass. deep rich color, the cherry taste seems powerful at first and then the chocolate takes over. This may be a bit too much as a dinner beer, but better as a dessert beer. Or just as dessert. Rich and full bodied. Good with red meats, particularly grilled.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Very dark brown with a thick tan head.

Smell: A lot of cherry, faint chocolate like a tootsie roll, some malt.

Taste: Very very sweet, strong cherry taste at first, then comes in with a dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Almost a syrup like consistence, almost no carbonation.

Overall: Not a fan of this beer and had a hard time drinking it. It tasted like a flat cherry coke with cough syrup. Cherry flavor was too strong.
