3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared by Chris. Thanks man!
The beer appears dark chestnut brown with a broken head of tan bubbles. The aroma offers a lot of chocolate scents, along with a rich, dark roasted malt. Definitely a huge chocolate presence. Not sure I would identify this as a quad, but hey, itís good stuff. Heavy chocolate presence throughout. Overall, this is ok, but not something I would regularly crave. Now that I have had it, overcoming the anticipation of never having had it, I would choose any of the standard Belgian examples of the style over this. Bonus points for chocolate deliciousness, but counteracted by lack of depth and complexity.

22oz bottle picked up at Friar Tucks, as I understand this is freshly bottled. A black pour wiith a small head. Aroma is strong on chocolate, actually all chocolate. Canít pick up much else, low on hops, no flaws breaking through the chocolate. Flavor is the same, the chocolate dominates and the base beer doesnt get in the way but doesnt do anything either. The body works well though, a little thicker and velvety. The beer is not sweet so its fun to drink if you want a chocolate fix.

650ml brown bottle - bottleshare at Ferrisí. 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 wasnít a big fan.

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.

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. Itís 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.

From ZDKís 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 doesnít make it good.

Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest. Chocolate dominates the aroma and flavors. Also some caramel and syrup flavors in the beer. The beer has a syrupy, sweet flavor. Interesting beer, but I probably wouldnít go out of my way to try again.
