3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, spicy yeast, dark fruits, some dark and caramel malts, and light bitter notes. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A pretty good quad.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours a dark brown that’s a bit watery, light tan head, ok ring... the aroma is outstanding, smells like a trappist quad mixed with Dr. Pepper and chocolate, additional notes of dark fruits, unique twist on a quad... the taste is not as successful, comes across a bit fake, summed up simply as chocolate soda, a little too carbonated, but drinkable incredibly so for something that is 10.5%, mostly chocolate... not up to the hype but very solid

Bottle, thanks to theAlum. Pours a deep brown, light comes through the edges. Nose is chocolate, faint caramel and soft malt. Nose is quite sweet. The yeast is pretty non-descript, as is the hopping. on tasting, holy cow is this sweet. Chocolate is strong as is a punch of lactose, pushing this into cloying. Hugely sweet and cloying. Not in my wheelhouse at all.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with thin, fizzy light beige head; short retention and no lacing. Aroma is milk chocolate, roasted malt, earthy hops, dark fruit, and vanilla. Flavor is malt forward with supporting dark fruit esters and faint hops; chocolate notes throughout with a dry, cocoa finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle - 22 oz) Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. Cocoa powder and milk chocolate in the aroma. Some light burnt sugar. Rich chocolatey flavor at the start with a smooth and creamy middle and a sweet finish. Was surprised that it was a quad and not a stout.

Thanks T..J. The beer pours to a deep cola colored body with a thin off-white head. The aroma is like a chocolate sundae. Lots of bananas covered in chocolate with some cream. The flavor is sweet bananas and a nice chocolate body. Like a sundae. Flavor lingers upon a medium dry body. This one works for me.

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.

Holy shit that is a lot of chocolate. They weren’t lying at least. Unfortunately it’s undrinkably sweet and gross.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Now named box of chocolate. Pour is a brown with a large tan head. Aroma is all things chocolate with some fruity yeast. Flavor is again mostly chocolate with some Belgain sugar and lots of booze. They got the chocolate and Belgian quad thing right but this does not hide the alcohol well and i would have given it a better score if it did.
