2.71/5  rDev -21.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

P: Deep dark mahogany body nearly black. A massive crown of creamy cappuccino head with decent retention and spider lacing.

S: A big dose of cherry cordials, sweet cherries, dark and milk chocolate, clove, nutmeg, figs, slight presence of anise, and spice bread.

T/M: Taste follows the nose. A pronounced profile of cherry cordial candies. Scorched grains, vanilla bean and finishes semi dry with lingering amaretto coffee. Medium-full body with moderate carb.

O: I'm not a huge fan of cherries. I have always hated cherry cordial candy but I admit this bock is not bad. I really was sure I would not like this but my mind has been changed. This isn't something I would seek out but I'm pleasantly pleased with this brew. On the negative side I feel that cherry presence really overpowers the other flavors. Cheers!

Pours out a dark brown/ruby body. Smell: maraschino cherry juice, almond extract, and chocolate flavoring. Tastes like a cherry Coke with chocolate flavoring. Lots of maraschino cherry syrup. Mouthfeel is flabby yet sticky. Needs more carbonation. I preferred the Chocolate Bock. I'm getting no bock characteristics between the cherry and chocolate.
