Lucky 13 Chocolate Bock

I have 13 bottles of Chocolate Bock (last year’s batch). 13 is an unlucky number so I am compelled to drink one bottle to get it down to 12. However, having to drink a bottle of Chocolate Bock seems lucky to me. Thus, it is a paradox. Which you can contemplate while… drinking Chocolate Bock.

Which I plan to do tonight while watching Battlestar Galactica.

BTW: willing to “break up the set” if friends are having trouble finding this stuff.

(You can only really see 12 bottles in the picture above, I noticed. One bottle is hidden in the back)

What in heck is chocolate Bock?

Sam Adams Chocolate Bock is a specialty beer made by the Boston Beer Company.

see Article

Basically, it's based on a German style beer that's very rich and malty (a bock, to be specific) and they let it ferment over chocolate to infuse it with a rich flavor.

It doesn't exactly taste like you're eating chocolate, but it is a style I like very much.

Anf it's not always easy to find, but now I know someone who is willing to be very helpful getting me hard-to-find stuff.

I'm saving my Chocolate Bock for Superbowl.

I'm having a hard time finding it in the Cambridge area, including the local Cappy's, but I'm going to try the two locations in Medford. Surprisingly few people in liquors stores have even heard of the stuff.
