12oz bottle, best before March, poured into a perfect pint glass shows a rich, deep, mahogany brown body, floats a 2/3in variably-bubbled milk chocolate head, and leaves a clean glass behind.

Aroma, and flavor, is muted cocoa and a slight roast.

Mouthfeel is light and clean, with a cocoa powder aftertaste. Easy drinking.

Overall a nice Bock with good chocolate flavor.

A nice drink. Not exceptional, but good chocolate bitterness comes through.

This is my first review so I may not be superb at this. My biggest cares are alcohol percentage, taste, smell, and uniquenesd. At a slightly above average abv level, it smells mildly sweet, kinda like caramel. And the taste is like a carbonated yoohoo!it took me back to my childhood. Its not very reminiscent of an actual beer but it does taste good. Its also a beer you can give a friend that doesn't usually like beers. Its not super hoppy and it tastes great over ice cream like a beer float.

Wow. Very subtle smell. Notes of sweet milk chocolate coco. Smokiness like a campfire that's nice. Tobacco. Taste is great. Very smooth all the way through. Very flat chocolate milk taste. In a good way. No bitterness. Little bit of smokiness. Very good overall. Especially for a mass produced beer. 8.5/10.

Awesome beer. Easy drinking bock with a chocolate aftertaste that shines through after every sip. Reminds me of chocolate milk that I used to get in elementary school.

Best chocolate beer I've had. Beautiful chocolate brown. Smooth and creamy with plenty of chocolate, complemented by good, rich beer flavor that is at once tangy and full.

This beer: creamy, chocolaty, slight bock hint in the background. I enjoy it quite a bit and wish I could get it outside of their Winter sampler. Id like more rich chocolate, but this beer is pretty solid either way.

Chocolate flavor, no surprise there. Despite the appearance of rising bubbles, it feels flat, and the structure completely falls apart. Hard to describe, but a few seconds after swallowing, I still taste chocolate, but my mouth doesn’t feel as if I’ve just had a beer.

Looks delicous! Pours a dark brown leaning towards a black in color with pretty ruby showing around the edges. Has a thick and foamy two fingers of light brown head that leaves some nice tan lacing on the glass.

The smell is like chocolate dreams. Picking up bittersweet and sweet chocolate on the nose. Not much else even as it warmed just lots of delicous chocolate.

The taste is really nice! Comes out exactly like the nose. Lots and lots of chocalte dominating it all. Almost like a chocolate bar melted down with a bit of bakers chocolate melted in.

Mouth feel lens toward medium with a sweet creamy texture. Very smooth and easy drinking.

Overall a very chocolate filled offering from Sam Adams. Would make a great desert beer for the holidays. Even with all of this chocolate there is just enough of the bittersweet chocolate to temper the beer from being overly sweet. What you get is just a creamy and kind of dreamy chocolate filled beer. Very wonderful beer!
