This is a tough beer to review because it tastes nothing like the description of the beer. Nothing about this says Bock and there is zero chili or heat. I get the chocolate and I get the nibs but that's about it. This comes across as a basic flavored ale. The aroma has hints of chocolate but nothing spicy.

Pours a porter-like brown with a large three finger head. Pretty nice lacing to it.

Smells somewhat wheaty and malty. Can’t get the chocolate, but I’m picking up some of the peppers.

Somewhat of a chalky taste. Good carbonation.

I’m not really a fan of the bock, but this is pretty good. Very drinkable at 8.5%. The chili and chocolate are very faint, but that’s not a bad thing. Very surprised with this beer. I’ve had some of the Imperial Series, and still don’t consider Sam Adams one of my favorites, but this one avoided the taste that seems to come with every other Sam Adams beer I’ve ever had. Not bashing on Sam Adams, either. It’s just that a few of their craft brews are not even close to standard. Overall, very good. I might just have to try some of the others of this series
