3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate, dark fruit and roasted malt. The chocolate is nearly overwhelming and really melds well with the dark fruit notes from the quadrupel. The flavor is more of the same. The chocolate tastes like malted milk balls, with some roasted malt and a little bit of raisins and figs mixed in. Thick mouthfeel and medium mouthfeel. Definitely a chocolate-heavy beer that somewhat surprisingly mixed well well with a traditional Belgian quad.
