Sam Adams Chocolate Bock

  1. For a big bottle (that looks very nice n pretty, btw) it's $17 and it has 40 % APV. Has anyone tried it? Is it good? I dont think I would like beer that's quite so strong and it's so expensive it would be like buying a bottle of liquor. I would try it though if someone had so me.

    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    This is a limited edition beer that Sam Adams put out just this year for Valentines Day. It was first introduced back in January, I believe. I bought a big 750 ml. bottle of it back in March. It was pretty good for being made by Sam Adams. I don't think it was quite worth the price, though.

    However, I can tell you one thing; it's not 40% ABV, not even close. The strongest beer in the world is actually made by Sam Adams, but it's their Utopias, and that is 25% ABV. I can't even imagine a beer being much higher than that. The Sam Adams Chocolate Bock is 5.6% ABV. I even looked on Beer Advocate to make sure I hadn't gone insane. :p
     
  3. well, then...

    the sub shop i went to lied then or are retarded because

    they have a sign saying it's 40% APV right beside the bottle.

    WTF?!

    They probably just don't know what they're talking about. I don't see why they would lie. For being only a sub shop, I wouldn't expect to find many beer experts working there. Plus, misinformation spreads so easy. All it takes is one person to say "oh dude, that stuff is 40% alcohol," and usually people go right along with it.

    It's kind of like some people in here who have said that Molson XXX is 11% alcohol, when in fact it's around 7%.

    Out of all Sam Adams' bock beers, their Double Bock is the strongest. This is around 8.5% ABV.
     
  5. yeah you're prolly right.

    i was just re-laying info. that they said.
