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.

Thanks JCB for sharing. Brown with a small tan head. Nose shows lots of sweet chocolate, lighter roast, light dark fruits. Flavor is kinda strange. I get some vegetal notes (brussels sprouts??), more cocoa, light roast. Not my box of chocolates.

Bomber from phaleslu (I think) - thanks! Pour is a touch flat, perhaps, with a handsome mahogany color done a slight disservice by relative lack of body and carbonation. Massive Tootsie Roll aroma that tends to crowd out most of the character I expect in a quad. This is borne out in the taste too, with only perfunctory yeast, fruits, and Belgian sugars. The Roll dominates, and perhaps more complexity would have come through with a different rendition of the choc (more bitter perhaps).

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 wouldn’t go out of my way to try again.
