Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. A very dark brown pour that has red tones and a ring of foam. A light nose but chocolate and a hint of mint are noted. Flavor is full of chocolate and it reminds me of Yoo Hoo Cola. some dark fruit comes late. A fizzy feel. Tasted not long after Boulevards chocolate and this one was far superior.

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, dark fruits, grapes, light banana, and a hint of alcohol. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a small beige head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of milk chocolate/chocolate syrup. It finishes with a pretty big sugary fruitiness and light-moderate candi sugar. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, the sugary sweetness is a bit too much for my liking.

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.
