Holy shit that is a lot of chocolate. They werenít lying at least. Unfortunately itís undrinkably sweet and gross.

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 wasnít overwhelming, just a little more that expected.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bottle shared with Posey on brew day. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is milk chocolate and sweet malt. Flavor follows and has lots of malted milk chocolate and bitter chocolate. Very sweet. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
