A very dark pour. I canít see any light through this at all, so Iíll say itís black. Medium head on the pour in my wifeís glass, not much in my Duvel glass. The head sticks around for a little bit and leaves no lacing. Maybe a small, little patch here and there, but not much. A big fruity and chocolate aroma. Smells like scratch and sniff stickers, of the chocolate variety of course. Or maybe chocolate scented erasers, as there is a bit of a rubbery aroma to this as well. Not so much rubbery as it is exactly like a chocolate scented eraser. Strange, but not a bad strange. There is some semblance of a quadrupel in there. Thatís where the fruity aroma is coming from. Slight banana and a big alcohol smell as well.

Not as chocolatey flavored as I would have thought it would be. There is a slight chocolate taste to it, but it is overpowered by the alcohol. The carbonation dries it out a bit, and leaves a bit of a carbonic bite in the mouth. Slight roasted flavor. Warming mouthfeel from the big alcohol. Slight bitterness left in the mouth the entire time I have been drinking this. I get a slight banana taste in there as well, but really not much. Not a bad beer, just a bit strange. Donít know if I could drink too many of these. Not sure if I could bring myself to buy this for myself. I wouldnít turn it down if someone were to give it to me. Gratis of course.

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.

Bottle shared with Posey on brew day. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is milk chocolate and sweet malt. Flavor follows and has lots of malted milk chocolate and bitter chocolate. Very sweet. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2/3/2014. On tap. Dark brown with a tan head. Malty and chocolate aromas with spices. Predominantly chocolate flavors with light spice, fruit and a semi-sweet finish. Nice balance.

Bottle shared by JCB. Pours reddish brown, dark and without a ton of carbonation. Nose is chocolate and nougat, or as JCB pointed out, Tootsie roll. Not very much like a quad. A bit sweet for me, but not bad.

Had this at a share; pours a nice dark black like oil with tan head. Dark fruits, chocolate, and some yeast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 26, 2013
22oz bottle via trade. Deep dark brown with a small fizzy head that quickly fades to a tiny ring. Aroma of milk chocolate mostly with some vanilla and caramel. Flavor is sweet chocolate and milk caramels with very light roast, alcohol very well hidden. Medium to full body with a soft, smooth mouth feel. I donít get any Quad character in this, itís all about the chocolate. A great sweet chocolate beer, a horrible Quad.
