4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brilliant aroma of high end coffee and expensive chocolate. One of the best aromas in recent memory. Appearance is also an easy 5. Shiny black color with a small ring of off white foam. The taste is slightly bitter chocolate with good coffee roast in the background. Both of these meld for a memorable aftertaste. Crazy drinkable for 11%. The palate is a bit thin but that just adds to the drink ability. Raise the rating on this bad boy. It's a great beer.

Aroma is a little sweet, bit of chocolate? Clear brown color with a beige head that fades quickly. Little lacing. Nice chocolate flavor, bit of the Belgian flavors. Alcohol evident in aftertaste. Overall a pretty nice beer. Almost seems like flavors could be blended a little better?

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaska från Beergium. Drucken som Kasteel Barista Chocolate Quad. Kaffebrun i färgen med högt beiget skum. Matt doft av mocca, gammaldags kola, mjölkchoklad, torkade plommon, lite apelsinskal. Stor kropp. Mocca, cafe latte, iskaffe, lite frappe. Sväller smakmässigt och går över i stor beska och spritig alkohol. Lite kolalikör, typ Baylis. Lite bittra toner som stör.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Deep brown body. Fizzy brown head, immediately disappearing. Strong nose of alcohol and molasses. Heavily sweet and alcoholic beer. Very unpleasant. Totally out of balance.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a rich brown color with a boozy chocolate aroma. Taste is dried fruit with notes of toffee and coffee. The alcohol content of this beer is truly evident with each drink, maybe too much. A nice warming beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (as Barista Chocolate Quad) from Beer in a Bottle, Beverley. Deep ruby red, non existent head and persistent condition. Sweet fruity nose with a slightly herbal edge, more like a cola or dandelion and burdock than beer, some background chocolate powder notes and a definite spirity alcohol kick. In the mouth it is fizzy, sweet and warming with a delicate chocolate flavour and a hint of roasted coffee. Despite the fizz in the mouth it remains quite flat and soft to the palate. Finish is sweet and warming with lingering chocolate and a slight spicy bitterness but seems a little unbalanced and contrived.
