An excellent replacement to the original chocolate bock it is the sole reason why i wait to drink this one last in the winter variety pack. Nice dark brown color average head and all around smoothness. Addictive to drink all day long especially winter. So soothing it is unreal

A 12 ounce bottle poured into a Sam Adams Sensory Glass.

Appearance - Very dark colored brown beer. Nice tall light colored head which did dissipate after a little while. Quite a bit of lacing left on the glass.

Smell - Maraschino cherries with a bit of cocoa.

Taste - A very sweet beer. Definitely more of a cherry flavor, however the ratio of cherry to chocolate is perfect.

Mouth - Very thick yet rich. Light carbonation which pairs perfectly with the flavors.

Overall - I would not hesitate to buy this if they came out with a 6 pack.

I had this beer for the first time over the weekend at a friend's vacation house. I'm one to try new things, and I'm definitely glad I tried this. It literally did taste like chocolate cherry cake- it was amazing. It had a great smell, the packaging was bright and eye-catching, the taste was amazing- the cherry was definitely noticeable, but not overpowering (I don't like cherry much to begin with) and the chocolate was certainly present as well, but not overly sweet. Would definitely drink this again!

Pours dark brown with a slight mocha head. The smell is a strong chocolate scent. I think stronger than the regular chocolate bock. The initial flavors is a potent cherry taste. Reminds me of a cherry coke. Finishes with a malty chocolate finish.

I could drink this regularly but the sweetness makes this a bit of a novelty. I find it to be a perfect dessert beer and wish it was available around the holidays.

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.
