The Beer Report: Cherry Chocolate Bock

Continuing our “99 Bottles of Beer” blog series, let’s try out a Sam Adams Cherry Chocolate Bock:


It’s a jet black color. A decent amount of head is present, sitting at the top of the glass.


It definitely smells like cherry.


Neither light nor heavy, with a strong cherry aftertaste.


Not at all chewy, but since it’s so dark, it’s hard to tell how much carbonation is present.


It’s good. Definitely has an overpowering cherry taste, which is nice, since it overpowers the usually very strong bock taste that bocks have (which I usually don’t care for). I had this with a good old fashioned mac and cheese, with a particularly strong hot sauce. Enjoy!
