Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. A very dark brown pour that has red tones and a ring of foam. A light nose but chocolate and a hint of mint are noted. Flavor is full of chocolate and it reminds me of Yoo Hoo Cola. some dark fruit comes late. A fizzy feel. Tasted not long after Boulevards chocolate and this one was far superior.

22oz bottle courtesy of phaleslu: Pours a clear dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a rich cocoa and dark caramel aroma with some dark fruity notes. Starts with good fullness and chewy dark caramel maltiness with a doughy yeasty complexity. Finishes sweet and chocolaty. An interesting and unique brew.

Thanks to T.J. for bringing the bomber! Poured hazy, deeper brown with a creamy, dark tan head. The aroma picked up chocolate-covered bananas plus some darker fruit upfront.. chocolate-centric, but the quad elements provided lovely depth.. sweet overall and very intriguing. The flavor found lots of cocoa nibs throughout, with darker fruit and biscuity sweetness at the core.. more toasty banana on the back-end.. very tasty stuff, but the chocolate overwhelmed all of the other interesting character. Medium-bodied and a bit too sweet on the palate.. the alcohol was totally masked.. very tasty and drinkable. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2012

Aroma: They weren’t kidding with the name, a sweet nose that smells like basically nothing but chocolates
Appearance: Pours dark brown, with a slight orange hue, a small beige head, and some streaky lacing
Flavor: Tastes a little more complex then the nose, still really sweet and chocolaty, with fruit and caramel
Palate: The body is medium-full, with an average-to-soft carbonation, and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel
This has got to be the most chocolaty beer that I have ever had. It is definitely a bit of a one-dimensional offering. The chocolate completely dominates the beer. Still though, it is pretty good, it just doesn’t have a ton of complexity to it. Style-wise, I don’t really know if it comes off as a Quad, but I don’t really know if I could put any particular style to it. It’s almost like drinking a candy bar. I got mix feelings, this one is interesting, but kind of a gimmick.
Sampled at St. Louis Microfest 2010 - Pours dark brown with a small tan had. The aroma has lots of smooth chocolate, thick toffee malt and caramel with a distinct Belgian yeastiness. The body is thick and chewy with gentle flowing carbonation. The flavor starts off with chocolate milk mixed with Belgian yeastiness along with lots of cream, vanilla and pleasing abv warmth. The finish has heat and cream. Nice interesting beer. blutt59 (6579) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2011

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, dark fruits, grapes, light banana, and a hint of alcohol. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a small beige head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of milk chocolate/chocolate syrup. It finishes with a pretty big sugary fruitiness and light-moderate candi sugar. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, the sugary sweetness is a bit too much for my liking.
