Bottle thanks to a generous BA, shared with others. Poured a slightly hazy dark brown with a brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of chocolates with a particular note of sweet bakers chocolate coming through as well as some milk chocolate. Flavor was similarly full of chocolate that started with bakers chocolate but ended with sweet milk chocolate. Very thick on the tongue.

bomber thanks to thebeersommelier. pours black with a 1/4" tan bubbly head. lovely nose with the perfect amount of chocolate, layered with tiramisu, dark fruits and vanilla. medium body with a smooth character throughout. again, the perfect blend of chocolate and dark fruit with light Belgian yeast notes. vanilla, light coffee and cream come forward with the alcohol well hidden. sweet sugary finish with milk chocolate and candy covered dark fruits. excellent!

jrallen34 (3497) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2011
pours a dark brown thatís a bit watery, light tan head, ok ring... the aroma is outstanding, smells like a trappist quad mixed with Dr. Pepper and chocolate, additional notes of dark fruits, unique twist on a quad... the taste is not as successful, comes across a bit fake, summed up simply as chocolate soda, a little too carbonated, but drinkable incredibly so for something that is 10.5%, mostly chocolate... not up to the hype but very solid

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2011
(sampled at Dakís Memorial Day tasting. I think Dak broke this open!). Pour dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is all milk chocolate . The flavor follows suit with sweet chocolate and some tootsie roll. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Slightly bitter finish, but balanced. Pretty nice beer with nice chocolate flavor, but the hype machine is in full tilt for this one.

Nose is just a dark roasted malt and vanilla. Mocha colored pour...small eggshell head. Flavor is all cocoa, milk chocolate...lots of lactic qualities. This seems a bit unrefined. Powdery, almost...not sure how else to describe it. Huge chocolate flavor, but that doesnít make it good.
