ben4321 (6139) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 1/10/12

Aroma: They werent 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
Overall Impression: 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 doesnt have a ton of complexity to it. Style-wise, I dont really know if it comes off as a Quad, but I dont really know if I could put any particular style to it. Its almost like drinking a candy bar. I got mix feelings, this one is interesting, but kind of a gimmick.

sonnycheeba (5843) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark brown with thin, fizzy light beige head; short retention and no lacing. Aroma is milk chocolate, roasted malt, earthy hops, dark fruit, and vanilla. Flavor is malt forward with supporting dark fruit esters and faint hops; chocolate notes throughout with a dry, cocoa finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Thanks to Keir for this beer in trade. Pours brown with red highlights and a tan head. Nose is cherry, malt, vanilla, sugar, milk chocolate, nougat, cane sugar, and maraschino cherries. Flavor is like a box of Queen Anne chocolate-covered cherries along with milk chocolate, sugar, and sweet cherries. Light to medium in body and an interesting beer; a bit thin in body for a quad.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, spicy yeast, dark fruits, some dark and caramel malts, and light bitter notes. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A pretty good quad.

This beauty was courtesy of Strykzone. From the 22 oz bottle this poured coal black with a medium sized tan head. Nose of chocolate, ripe dark fruit, and vanilla . Rick in body with s smooth creamy mouthfeel and a touch of alcohol. Flavor is foremost chocolate, but the vanilla and ripe fruit balance it out. Finishes like chocolate bar. Excellent.

Huge thanks to mikeyv35 for sharing a bottle of this at the Rosso release. Thanks goes out to coryking for getting me a bottle as well; thatll get shared at a tasting soon. Served in a SAVOR snifter. Pours a medium brown with short off-white head that sticks around for a bit before falling to a thin collar. Not too much lacing. The nose is fairly light with some nice notes of chocolate and a bit of dark fruits in the background. Very nice. The taste really explodes off of the base the nose had going. Its just as described: a very nice quad with layers of chocolate over the top. The chocolate character is really dominant, and the quad underneath is spot on as well. Nice mix of dark fruits, raisins, and semi-sweet malt. A bit of brown sugar as well. Mouthfeel is very, very smooth and doesnt reveal the 10.5% at all. Overall, a very solid beer and its acclaim is well-deserved. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-17-2011

Thanks JCB for sharing. Pours a rich dark brown with a dark tan head. Lots of chocolate in the nose, tootsie roll character. Nothing but chocolate here with some caramel, no quad coming through at all. Medium body with a light oxidation. Interesting

A really good dessert beer. More chocolate than quad, but there is some nice slick spicyness here. Hints of dark fruit behind the dominant chocolate. Tried at the Parkville microbrew fest in 2015.
