3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted 8/19/11. 22oz bomber. Unactivated pour leaves a ton of dark sediment in the bottle. Pours opaque brown with a webbed khaki head. Aromas of Cherry 7Up, Sugary lemon and lime candy flavor. Mild chocolate and fudge nuance. Full bodied and super sweet! The palate screams fudgy chocolate icing. Overwhelming sweetness from the malts and the other ingredients. Nice blend of the Belgian yeast and dark fruity esters, chocolate and fudgy flavors. The alcohol is muted and gets lost in the cola, syrupy sweetness. Yeah, the sweetness is a tad overt. Even at this age. A crazy banana ester pops up in the finish, and actually blends seamlessly with the melted chocolate ice cream flavor. Crazy.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is a super deep mahogany. Half an inch of coffee colored head, gone quickly. Not much lacing to speak of. Nose is coffee, cocoa, banana, pineapple, dried stone fruit, bit of oak. Palate is lush, carbonated, and a little creamy. The flavors come in waves. First banana esters, plum and chocolate, then tart cherry and chocolate, followed by vanilla, more dark fruit, coffee notes, more chocolate, a little malty sweetness, and the faintest hint of alcohol. Really interesting brew. Terrifyingly drinkable at 10.5 abv.

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.
