Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk on a train to Margate. As Barista Chocolate Quad. Dark brown ruby black. Thin collar tan bubbles. Thin chocolate aroma. it’s boozy no doubt. Warming and unsubtle. Dark fruits. Plums prunes. Chocolate is thin and all over the place alcohol burn on finish. Not good. Boozy.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom L place. Thanks Shmupi. As Kasteel Barista Chocolate Quad. Clear deep amber with beige head. Nice aroma of sweet milk chocolate and cherry. Sweet flavor of cherry praline, a bit alcoholic and somewhat salty. Medium to full-bodied.

gift from my younger brother - Thanks! - Aroma of toasted malt and chocolate. Opaque black/brown color, bubbly ivory head cover, globs and blobs of lace. Taste is toasted malt that moves through a carbonated swallow to mild hops. As it moves to the finish, all elements change to a (as Kasteel says) tootsie roll. Surprisingly good, as the sweet chocolate is only there at the end - the rest is traditional toasted malt Belgian Strong. Very good.

I was very disappointed by this beer. I expected more. It was too sweet for me and tasted like liquid " Haagse Hopjes ", a dutch sweet. I did not like the chocolate element, missed the balancel tue hop, the typical bitters.

33 cl bottle as "Kasteel Barista Chocolate Quad ". Poured in to a Trappist glass. Dark amber colour with a thin, lightly tanned head. Sweet aroma with caramel, chocolate, coffee and a fruity-yeasty note. Light alcohol dense notes. Taste is sweet. Full body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes sweet with caramel, chocolate, dark dried fruits and coffee. Rather rich on the chocolate powder and coffee. Sweet as a dessert.

Bottle. What a wonderful chocolate delight. Dark chocolate brown. Nice head. Aromas and taste of a wonderful chocolate trip that Willy Wonka would be proud of. Loved it.

This is a very good quad. It’s not often that a quad is defined by coffee and chocolate characteristics, but this is a surprisingly good find. Tried with Jess during Omaha beer week with Jess in 2016.
