Try looking in liquor/beer stores. My guess is, that's where you'll find one.

I've seen it both in the beer stores in Austin, TX area and down in Casa Grande, AZ. About $16 each.

I had one a couple weeks ago....very very nice.

Not bad, but not worth the price tag AT ALL in my opinion. Tastes like a decent bock with some cocoa powder in it.

It says it's aged on cocoa nibs, and that's probably part of the price right there, but it just isn't that great. If it was regular price for a 6 pack, I would probably buy it again, but I definitely won't be shelling out $16 for a bottle of this stuff again.

It's not bad, i didn't hate it but i didn't love it either. Not worth the price, especially since i live in Utah and all beer above 4%ABV has to be sold in a state run liquor store at a considerable markup here.

X3 Found it at Whole Foods in Baton Rouge. Good, but not worth the price

I've had 4 pints of this beer at local bars. I think it is a really good bock, and the chocolate flavor is really nice. One of the best offerings from Sam Adams I've ever had. And at 4 bucks a pint you can't go wrong.

Way too sweet and malty to me - even for a bock. Just my Opinion
