Samuel Adams Chocolate Bock

type: chocolate bock
origin: Boston, MA
price: ?
ABV: 5.8%
NSP: ?

Given their propensity for selling variety packs, wherein 50% of the pack is shit, I drank this with as low of expectations as I usually do for Boston Beer Company.  But, I'm happy to say this is the first offering from BBC that I've enjoyed in a long time.

In fact, I think I really like this!  It drinks like a dunkel with cocoa powder, but it's also really light on body.  The cocoa adds a little coating to your tongue with each sip, and while  I personally love dark chocolate (any chocolate really), I still think typical beer drinkers can enjoy the hell out of this.  I actually found myself wishing there were more left over from our last party.  And the label is pretty rad too -- it makes me think of medieval brewers in Germania, or something like that.

I guess this makes up for their craptacular crapfest known as Summer Ale.
