A really good dessert beer. More chocolate than quad, but there is some nice slick spicyness here. Hints of dark fruit behind the dominant chocolate. Tried at the Parkville microbrew fest in 2015.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2012 Bottle, 66 cl. Very dark brown with a reddish hue and a small beige head. Aroma has lots of dark, creamy chocolate notes. Taste is dark sugars, dark chocolate, cream, vanilla. A little cloying, sticky texture. Not my idea of a great beer, let alone a great quad. Almost vulgar.

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

Bottle - Pours murky brown with a small thin head. Smells like bananas, sweet tarts, and light chocolate milk. Sweet and sugary. Taste is burnt malt, cinnamon, Irish creme. It’s sweet and kind of sour, with lots of alcohol on the finish. Sharp carbonation distracts when this is colder, but gets better as it warms. Interesting, but not my cup of tea.

Sampler at the W&C in Ballwin, Mo. It poured a brown color with a large tan head. The aroma was mostly chocolate with some minor yeast. The flavor was mostly chocolate with some sugar and a ton of booze. The chocolate wasn’t overwhelming, just a little more that expected.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From ZDK’s gathering. The aroma is caramel, sweet, chocolate, but odd sort of artificial-ness. The appearance is brown in color, off-white head. The flavor is like a box of chocolates, a mash up of chocolate, and other sweet flavors, like strawberry, raspberry, etc. The finish is sweet, light pine. Very good.

Nose is just a dark roasted malt and vanilla. Mocha colored pour...small eggshell head. Flavor is all cocoa, milk chocolate...lots of lactic qualities. This seems a bit unrefined. Powdery, almost...not sure how else to describe it. Huge chocolate flavor, but that doesn’t make it good.

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.

650ml brown bottle - bottleshare at Ferris’. Deep borwn pour, thin swirl of beige head on top. Chocolate and cocoa nose, chocolate cake. Taste has a lot of chocolate and a bit of cherry and a dash of sour milk. Dry finish. Seemed a bit thin. Overall I wasn’t a big fan.
