3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to T.J. for bringing the bomber! Poured hazy, deeper brown with a creamy, dark tan head. The aroma picked up chocolate-covered bananas plus some darker fruit upfront.. chocolate-centric, but the quad elements provided lovely depth.. sweet overall and very intriguing. The flavor found lots of cocoa nibs throughout, with darker fruit and biscuity sweetness at the core.. more toasty banana on the back-end.. very tasty stuff, but the chocolate overwhelmed all of the other interesting character. Medium-bodied and a bit too sweet on the palate.. the alcohol was totally masked.. very tasty and drinkable.

Bottle shared by Derek. Pours a deep black with purple and crimson highlights and a thin beige head. Aromas of slightly alkaline cocoa powder. Soft cocoa and chocolate. Great aromas. Tastes like hot chocolate, warm cocoa powder, smooth and sweet. Very nice. A touch of warmth on the finish, spicy with a bit of yeast and more cocoa.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft served in a snifter at International Tap House in Soulard. Pours an opaque dark brown color with a small beige ring for a head. Very surprised this is a quad based on what it smelled and tasted like. Aroma is heavy on dark and baker’s chocolate notes, along with vanilla, dark fruits, woody and earthy notes, caramel, and booze. Almost smells like a bourbon barrel-aged beer. Flavor carries a little more of the quad characteristics, with more fruity, earthy notes and some yeast to go with the heavy dose of chocolate. Some warming alcohol late. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, boozy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. It seems like I keep finding these surprisingly great Charleville beers at iTap and I hope that trend continues.
