3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very dark pour. I canít see any light through this at all, so Iíll say itís black. Medium head on the pour in my wifeís glass, not much in my Duvel glass. The head sticks around for a little bit and leaves no lacing. Maybe a small, little patch here and there, but not much. A big fruity and chocolate aroma. Smells like scratch and sniff stickers, of the chocolate variety of course. Or maybe chocolate scented erasers, as there is a bit of a rubbery aroma to this as well. Not so much rubbery as it is exactly like a chocolate scented eraser. Strange, but not a bad strange. There is some semblance of a quadrupel in there. Thatís where the fruity aroma is coming from. Slight banana and a big alcohol smell as well.
Not as chocolatey flavored as I would have thought it would be. There is a slight chocolate taste to it, but it is overpowered by the alcohol. The carbonation dries it out a bit, and leaves a bit of a carbonic bite in the mouth. Slight roasted flavor. Warming mouthfeel from the big alcohol. Slight bitterness left in the mouth the entire time I have been drinking this. I get a slight banana taste in there as well, but really not much. Not a bad beer, just a bit strange. Donít know if I could drink too many of these. Not sure if I could bring myself to buy this for myself. I wouldnít turn it down if someone were to give it to me. Gratis of course.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from beerfest. Pours a murky brown color with a smaller head. Aroma was lots of chocolate, some caramel and fruits. Flavor is syrup, chocolate and fades to fruit undertones. Not sure how this is a quad. Still an ok beer. Nothing to really stand out and make you want it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an opaque dark garnet brown with a thin light tan head that quickly disappears. Aroma is Hersheyís chocolate syrup as well as a vinous character. Taste is sweet chocolate covered raisins and buttery caramel. Some Belgian ale notes and alcohol warmth in the background. Pretty damned decent!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Pour is a deep brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is interesting for sure. Notes of cocoa powder, very sweet chocolate, milk shake, faint note of fruit, and a touch spice. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate, very lightly roasted malt, cocoa, cheap chocolate truffle, and a touch of holiday spice. Certainly not for everyone and very potent. One glass is plenty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted at the 1st annual Urban Chestnut - Wolpertinger festival in St. Louis, MO, USA from tap into sampler beer boot. Poured a very dark, opaque, reddish brown color with almost no foam. Strong chocolaty aroma, in addition to dark malts, roasted grains, mild hops and yeast esters. Flavor was dominated by chocolate too, I mean real cocoa not "chocolate" malt, to the point of excess. Unique and tasty. Well-concealed alcohol. An interesting novelty, try it for yourself, but I canít imagine drinking a whole pint of it, much less a six pack. One and done.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
