Color- black ruby. Slight head.

Aroma- cherry chocolate candy.

Taste- Starts with strong cherry with chocolate background, then chocolate dominates the middle and finishing with a long, odd chocolate cherry roasty finish. Overall a decent brew but nothing like the Sammy Chocolate Bock made with Scharffen Berger chocolate in 750 ml bottles. This reminds us of cheap cherry-chocolate candy by Russel Stover.

12 ounce bottle, enjoy before March 2014. It's a bit dated, so we'll see how it is. Served in a mug, the beer pours dark brown with some ruby red tints. There's also an inch light tan head that stays around for a while. There's a small amount of lacing. The brew mostly smells like cherries, along with some chocolate, cola and plums. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's the addition of some molasses and a slight medicinal flavor. Also, the chocolate is more noticeable in the flavor of this brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit syrupy with low/moderate carbonation. I thought it was a good enough brew, definitely worth a try if you've never had it before.
