Tomorrow evening I’m having a slew of friends over for one purpose: to drink my beer. I have so much of it in the fridge that I really need help reviewing it. I ask nothing in return. I can only hope my grave will someday read “he would have given you the shirt off his back and his last beer“.
Tonight’s review is of Samuel Adams Chocolate Bock. This is a straight-up FANTASTIC beer. The brew starts out slightly boring actually, with an initially watery body. A half-second later the stuff turns to magic in your mouth. The body becomes full and malty caramel and uber-chocolateness takes over. It’s creamy and smooth and somehow reminds me of being a kid. Although I haven’t had the candy in ages, I think this bock reminds me of a Riesen.
I was going to save this for tomorrow night to share, and I’m SOOOO glad I didn’t!
