3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle as Barista Chocolate Quad that I picked up at Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, shared with dad Rawson Green, Kilburn, Derbyshire Friday 8th April 2016 . Pours dark brown with a large beige head. A mostly chocolatey nose with some toasted molasses and a little coffee. Plenty of chocolate in the mouth though almost too chocolatey, coming across as a bit artificial. There is a touch of mocha also, loads of sweet malts and a spiciness at the edges. Ok.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draft at the Craft Ale House in Limerick. This "quad" poured a very dark brown color with a smallish, light tan head. The head decreased over a little bit of time to only a ring around the inside of the glass. The body was extremely full. Please don’t take this one lightly. It’s a sipping beer to be enjoyed slowly. I tasted more coffee than chocolate, though both were very prominent. The chocolate aspect was very creamy and light. I also tasted some bready and yeasty flavors with some candi sugar. The alcohol component was very present and supplied a nice warming feeling, especially in the finish and aftertaste.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 33cl. Opaque dark brown. Intense aromas of sweet coffee, alcohol, a bit nauseating to be honest. Robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Intense sweet and spicy (cinnamon) character with moderate bitterness into a heavy bitter and alcohol finish. Quite nice, but I despised the sweet coffee flavors and find them in very poor taste for this kind of beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 330ml. A deep dark beer with a small brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, mocha, coffee milk and brown sugar. Taste is sweet and reminds me of coffee milk with mocha. I guess that is the reason it was called barista chocolate quad. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a strong cinnamon finish. Not terrible, but I expect more from a Belgian beer and not just something that reminds me of Starbuck’s beverages.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Très belle bière sombre. Arôme café et chocolat extrêmement prononcé. Au goût on est sur le café froid. Très sucrée. Au final cette bière est assez lourde et trop sucrée. Assez ecoeurante. Une bière d’hiver.
