Never had a bock so this is my first.

A- Very dark pour almost a coca-cola with a milk chocolatey head that quickly dissipated into virtually no lacing.

S- wow!! Immediate smells of cherry and chocolate. The chocolate finds its way in over a dominating cherry scent.

T- At first it's malty but it could be I've just started drinking beer. So Malty at first then I get the cherry and chocolate even a coffee flavor. I can't believe I'm drinking a beer right now!!

MF- Real thick and Creamy idk how to compare it to anything other than a good mocha.

OV- I really get what Sam Adams is doing here. I enjoyed this beer alot and I thought they accomplished what they were shooting for. I could drink it all holiday season.

Smell of cherries and malt hit my nose instantly as it has a dark color with slight head. The first taste reveals dark chocolate and cherries with a hint of other malts. Tastes like those Lindle chocolate covered cherry candies. It has a medium body with slight carbonation. This beer was delicious and would make a great desert drink. Might be great if made into a float with vanilla or cherry ice cream. Would love to buy this again.

look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Appearance: A dark dark beer, not much head on the pour, and no bubbling is obvious. This looks the way it should.

Smell: Strong smell of cherry, and no so much any malt or hops.

Taste: Just cherry.

Mouthfeel: very high in carbonation, but a light beer. This is an okay combination.

Overall: I would attempt to avoid this.

Dense inch and a half light tan head on a dark brown body. Head has good staying power and layered lacing.

Distinct (somewhat artificial) cherry aroma. Smells sweet.

Starts with a cherry taste that the nose eluded too. Artifical tasting even if its not artificial. Chocolate is not as pronounced as the cherry aspect. Not a big fan of the aftertaste either, the sweetness turns to a cloying taste that I can't quite describe. Drinks at its stated 5.8%abv.

Creamy mouthfeel albeit somewhat on the thin side. Lower but adequate carbonation.

Overall the quality falls right in line with the Boston Beer variety packs, you know what you are getting. A beer worth a try if you like sweet or cherry beers for sure, but doesn't have enough redeeming qualities to earn its own six pack from the BBC.
