22 oz. bottle. Pours a black cola like color with a small head. Itís black. The aroma has some chocolate, roast flavors, and Belgian yeast like esters though the latter is he lighter of the three. The taste really brings the chocolate into play. A wave of smooth chocolate glides across the palate. I must say the name is very fitting and I am glad they did not hold back on the chocolate. The palate is smooth and silky almost like some good chocolate.

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.

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.

Thanks JCB for sharing. Pours a rich dark brown with a dark tan head. Lots of chocolate in the nose, tootsie roll character. Nothing but chocolate here with some caramel, no quad coming through at all. Medium body with a light oxidation. Interesting

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 shared by JCB. Pours reddish brown, dark and without a ton of carbonation. Nose is chocolate and nougat, or as JCB pointed out, Tootsie roll. Not very much like a quad. A bit sweet for me, but not bad.

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
