Appearance- dark ruby brown pours with a clean head without stones

Smell- sweet toffee maltiness, not a note of hop

Taste- no bite on the front as the rich caramel sweetness takes over, minor notes of chocolate to be given a name

Mouthfeel- smooth on the tounge with big feel, lingers behind

Overall- a mild take even for a bock yet a good one on price and drinkability

I'm not a real fan of the chocolate's, but I have to say this one was nice. It was apart of a sampler I picked up and I drank from the bottle. From what I could see the very dark in color and test with hints of Chocolate. The aroma was sweet and the taste not as bitter as I thought it would be I really enjoyed this beer. It was paired with a chocolate chip cookie and it was a nice replacement to a glass of milk.

Well I must say I tried a bottle of this Bock and liked it! This beer is pretty good, small head with a nice aroma. The cocoa is dominant but not overpowering. This beer was a surprise and a good offering from SA. I would buy this and serve it at a winter party where most people have no idea what a bourbon barrel stout is.

Bottom Line: if you want a fair priced beer to share with friends this is a good choice.

12oz bottle best by may

look is a very dark brown with a fizzy tan head. smell is slightly roasted malt and grain, with chocolate coffee grounds in the background. taste again starts off grainy, then comes sweet chocolatey malts. finish is the mix between the two, maybe some floral hops, an overwhelming plastic, almost cardboard, taste and rubbery mouthfeel.

very sweet and malty, with a foul, mineral-like aftertaste and some odd cardboard notes. the malt and grain is at first very pleasant, but ends up almost being a drainpour.
