22oz bottle via trade. Deep dark brown with a small fizzy head that quickly fades to a tiny ring. Aroma of milk chocolate mostly with some vanilla and caramel. Flavor is sweet chocolate and milk caramels with very light roast, alcohol very well hidden. Medium to full body with a soft, smooth mouth feel. I donít get any Quad character in this, itís all about the chocolate. A great sweet chocolate beer, a horrible Quad.

Bottle - Chocolate and a light sweetness. Dark brown with a thin beige head. Chocolate and light sour sweetness from the yeast. Very odd for quad but still kinda nice.

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.

Deep deep brown with a small white head... dark chocolate, some milk chocolate and lots of notes of dark fruits dominate a somewhat subdued aroma.. very very very chocolatey kinda like chocolate soda thick alcoholic... full bodied fairly carbonated...

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.

651mL thanks to CaptainCougar. Pours deeper amber with medium tan head. Good lace. Sweet chocolate nose with salty black olive. Taste is tangy, big chocolate box, with gritty cocoa powder and black patent malt olive and smokey ash. Not a quadrupel whatsoever. Sweet Stout perhaps. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
