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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours a dark brown thatís 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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of tootsie rolls. Flavor is very chocolatey...also a bit like tootsie rolls...mildly fruity but chocolate dominates. Mouthfeel is full and silky with a nice slightly sweet chocolate finish that warms a bit. Nice beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

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.
