bottle from Bierpost. Dark brown with a dense beige head. Coffee and chocolate in the nose. Sweet malty start, with roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate, figs and dates. Complex yet still quite quaffable, despite the strength.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
As Barista Chocolate Quad by Kasteel. Dark brown, quickly vanishing head. Aroma: very strong coffee and mocha aroma, some dark chocolate, vanilla. Deep whiff reveals barley wine, some hairspray notes, some wood notes. Very nice and robust blend. Taste: an equally interesting experience. Starts with deep mocha and vanilla notes. A gentle swelling of the alcohol follows, and the taste moves towards a boozy high that resembles red wine, and which reveals cherry notes as well. Aftertaste is warming, quite boozy, but very tasteful with vanilla and mocha notes. Has degustation written all over it. Great stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33cl. Deep black with a red glow and an off white head. Strange aroma which I never experienced before: it’s probably the chocolate my nose picks up. The taste is full on chocolate, a deep sweetness but also the bitterness of pure chocolate. Aftertaste is dominated too much of the chocolate. Almost no development. Too heavy for my taste...

Tasted as Barista Chocolate Quad Small beige head, fast dwindling over cola-coloured beer. Dry ground coffee nose, Ersatz coffee. Bit of (dried) dark berries. Carbonated sweet coffee, koffiebonenchocolate sweets., sweet spices. Alcoholwarming, well-bodied, feels quite carbonated, even spritzy, despite its placid appearance.

Discounted bottle from Total Wine. Pours dark brown with very little head and no discernible bubbles. Aroma if baking chocolate. Taste and mouthfeel are reminiscent of chocolate syrup. Very good, but not really winter-y.
