Poured into a pint glass, the appearance was a murky semi-dark burnt orange to brown color with a sly finger’s worth of white foamy head. Dissipates nice and even with some messy lace. The aroma had a ton of sweet sticky chocolate malts, a bit more than expected, light breadiness with a light toasty effect to it. Light vanilla. The flavor seemed to tip the boat towards the sweet side of the wheelhouse, interesting. Big malty sweet chocolatey aftertaste with a sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a stickiness so big that it is not as sessionable as one would hope. Carbonation is very low in this one. Cloying. Overall, dunkelbock that seems to have gone astray a bit in its ability to portray smooth sessionability through any sort of lager yeast to assist in being either a food beer or even a dessert beer. Hope Vermont Pub gets this one right because at the moment, I wouldn’t have this again.

First had: on tap at their brewery

Had on tap, spring of '11. Poured a dark brown-black with a small, dense tan head that left a bit of streaking on the glass, but no substantial lacing. Roasty aroma of dark malts and cocoa. Taste of unsweetened chocolate, more bitter than anything, and kind of disappointing; roasted malts and a touch of molasses. With a name like "Bocks of Chocolates," I really expected more of a chocolatey taste, but it just wasn't happening. Medium mouthfeel, light carbonation, fairly good, but nothing extraordinary.
