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: The aroma consists of chocolate, dark fruits, grapes, light banana, and a hint of alcohol. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a small beige head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of milk chocolate/chocolate syrup. It finishes with a pretty big sugary fruitiness and light-moderate candi sugar. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, the sugary sweetness is a bit too much for my liking.

Bottle, 22oz. Itís a dark brown one, more or less clear, and with a dark beige head. Quite chocolatey aroma, with vanilla and coffee. Roasted matls too. Itís full-bodied and quite sweetish, with vanilla, roasted malts and lots of chocolate. Pleasant carbonation. Chocolatey finish with a good touch of roasted malts and vanilla. Well, I certainly like the chocolate part of the beer, but itís not superb in any way. But I like it though. 121109

Opaque black beer, big fluffy tan head. Palate is smooth with mild carbonation. Chocolate! Slightly tangy milk chocolate and a lesser tone of drinking chocolate and that somewhat powdery chocolate you associate with cheap sweets. A hint of tangy chocolate orange. Finishes semi dry. Trace of banana and bubblegum ester. Mild minerals and a little dark chocolate. Harmless fun!

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 26, 2013
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.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Taste chocolate, sweet, dark fruit. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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...
