Itís difficult to express loveís nuances much like the complexity of this Belgian style chocolate quad. You might use a box of chocolate to express your love; we use it to demonstrate our passion for great beer.

22oz bottle courtesy of phaleslu: Pours a clear dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a rich cocoa and dark caramel aroma with some dark fruity notes. Starts with good fullness and chewy dark caramel maltiness with a doughy yeasty complexity. Finishes sweet and chocolaty. An interesting and unique brew.

22oz bomber poured into a snifter. From Beernbourbon in a trade, thanks Vince! Pours black with no head. Aroma of chocolate, dark fruits and Belgian sugar. Taste is medium sweet. Mostly chocolate with sugar and dark fruit and a little dash of vanilla. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Soft carbonation and a long chocolaty finish. Overall, very good. I would gladly drink this again.

Thanks JCB for sharing. Brown with a small tan head. Nose shows lots of sweet chocolate, lighter roast, light dark fruits. Flavor is kinda strange. I get some vegetal notes (brussels sprouts??), more cocoa, light roast. Not my box of chocolates.

Bottle thanks to billshmeinke. Pours with a clear (when held up to the light), pretty close to black hue with a small tan head. Aromas are of raisins, tons of dark fruit esters, raspberries, lots of cocoa nibs, vanilla, dark chocolate, banana, pear esters (pear drops) and maybe a bit of lactose. Flavors are of pear, chocolate, cocoa, esters, earthy, nutty and very fruity. Tons of esters (including pear and banana), some candy notes and maybe even something along the lines of peanut butter. Somewhat lively carbonation for a big beer like this. Fuller bodied. Nice.

Thanks JCB for sharing. Pours a rich dark brown with a dark tan head. Lots of chocolate in the nose, tootsie roll character. Nothing but chocolate here with some caramel, no quad coming through at all. Medium body with a light oxidation. Interesting

A touch tangy, Belgian yeasty, dark milk chocolate, candy sugar, dark fruity, plum, raisin flavor. Sweet dessert beer thatís pretty nice.

This beauty was courtesy of Strykzone. From the 22 oz bottle this poured coal black with a medium sized tan head. Nose of chocolate, ripe dark fruit, and vanilla . Rick in body with s smooth creamy mouthfeel and a touch of alcohol. Flavor is foremost chocolate, but the vanilla and ripe fruit balance it out. Finishes like chocolate bar. Excellent.

Bottle at a recent tasting... Poured dark, hazy brown, with a thin tan head. This was really nice. Lots of cocoa, milk chocolate, caramel maltiness and sweetness with balancing esters and fruitiness. Hints of charred roast, and a slight floralness. Really I think the body and mouthfeel is what made this great.

Tasted at the 1st annual Urban Chestnut - Wolpertinger festival in St. Louis, MO, USA from tap into sampler beer boot. Poured a very dark, opaque, reddish brown color with almost no foam. Strong chocolaty aroma, in addition to dark malts, roasted grains, mild hops and yeast esters. Flavor was dominated by chocolate too, I mean real cocoa not "chocolate" malt, to the point of excess. Unique and tasty. Well-concealed alcohol. An interesting novelty, try it for yourself, but I canít imagine drinking a whole pint of it, much less a six pack. One and done.

Draft. Pour is a deep brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is interesting for sure. Notes of cocoa powder, very sweet chocolate, milk shake, faint note of fruit, and a touch spice. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate, very lightly roasted malt, cocoa, cheap chocolate truffle, and a touch of holiday spice. Certainly not for everyone and very potent. One glass is plenty.
