Bottle, 22oz. It’s a dark brown one, more or less clear, and with a dark beige head. Quite chocolatey aroma, with vanilla and coffee. Roasted matls too. It’s full-bodied and quite sweetish, with vanilla, roasted malts and lots of chocolate. Pleasant carbonation. Chocolatey finish with a good touch of roasted malts and vanilla. Well, I certainly like the chocolate part of the beer, but it’s not superb in any way. But I like it though. 121109 Meilby (11791) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012

Sampled at GABF on Saturday October 13, first sessionNobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Clear dark brown to black color, brown head. Sweet, malty scent. Sweet, malty, bitter taste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium low bitterness.
Bottle, thanks to theAlum. Pours a deep brown, light comes through the edges. Nose is chocolate, faint caramel and soft malt. Nose is quite sweet. The yeast is pretty non-descript, as is the hopping. on tasting, holy cow is this sweet. Chocolate is strong as is a punch of lactose, pushing this into cloying. Hugely sweet and cloying. Not in my wheelhouse at all. radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2012
This nicely labeled 22oz bottle even looks like a fancy box of chocolates. Poured a dark brown color with a small, tan head. Aroma was heavy on the sweet milk chocolate variety, with some cocoa, and a touch of roasted malty notes. Flavor was quite enjoyable - I am particularly reminded of a canned chocolate soda that I used to drink as a kid and haven’t probably had in 20 years, but if this didn’t remind me of that one in the flavor and palate. Quite nice. Huhzubendah (3775) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Shared by Chris. Thanks man!
The beer appears dark chestnut brown with a broken head of tan bubbles. The aroma offers a lot of chocolate scents, along with a rich, dark roasted malt. Definitely a huge chocolate presence. Not sure I would identify this as a quad, but hey, it’s good stuff. Heavy chocolate presence throughout. Overall, this is ok, but not something I would regularly crave. Now that I have had it, overcoming the anticipation of never having had it, I would choose any of the standard Belgian examples of the style over this. Bonus points for chocolate deliciousness, but counteracted by lack of depth and complexity.
