Default Sam Adams gets rid of...

...Cranberry Lambic from its winter variety pack
I was at Sam's club today. This year the sampler includes chocolate bock, but no cranberry lambic. Thanks for listening Jim.

well, i don't blame them. it was FANTASTIC for the first few years that they made it, but then it started tasting like they were penny-pinching the recipe.

too bad.......

I like it a lot. They released this beer before in larger bottles, like 750mL. It was kind of pricey then. Imo, it is a great addition and appropriate to the sampler.

Chocolate bock? I remember spending $15 on a 750 of that, is this the same recipe?

I just picked up the sampler last weekend and really enjoyed the Chocolate Bock. Would be happy to see them release it as a 6 pack. Decent chocolate presence. I'd almost like an even stronger chocolate taste, but it's great where it's currently at.
