Now named box of chocolate. Pour is a brown with a large tan head. Aroma is all things chocolate with some fruity yeast. Flavor is again mostly chocolate with some Belgain sugar and lots of booze. They got the chocolate and Belgian quad thing right but this does not hide the alcohol well and i would have given it a better score if it did. jandd1983 (4270) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Sampler at the W&C in Ballwin, Mo. It poured a brown color with a large tan head. The aroma was mostly chocolate with some minor yeast. The flavor was mostly chocolate with some sugar and a ton of booze. The chocolate wasn’t overwhelming, just a little more that expected. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle at a recent tasting... Poured dark, hazy brown, with a thin tan head. This was really nice. Lots of cocoa, milk chocolate, caramel maltiness and sweetness with balancing esters and fruitiness. Hints of charred roast, and a slight floralness. Really I think the body and mouthfeel is what made this great. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Thanks JCB for sharing. Brown with a small tan head. Nose shows lots of sweet chocolate, lighter roast, light dark fruits. Flavor is kinda strange. I get some vegetal notes (brussels sprouts??), more cocoa, light roast. Not my box of chocolates. zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 16, 2014
(bottle - 22 oz) Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. Cocoa powder and milk chocolate in the aroma. Some light burnt sugar. Rich chocolatey flavor at the start with a smooth and creamy middle and a sweet finish. Was surprised that it was a quad and not a stout.

Bomber from phaleslu (I think) - thanks! Pour is a touch flat, perhaps, with a handsome mahogany color done a slight disservice by relative lack of body and carbonation. Massive Tootsie Roll aroma that tends to crowd out most of the character I expect in a quad. This is borne out in the taste too, with only perfunctory yeast, fruits, and Belgian sugars. The Roll dominates, and perhaps more complexity would have come through with a different rendition of the choc (more bitter perhaps). beastiefan2k (3900) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - MAR 27, 2011
22oz bottle picked up at Friar Tucks, as I understand this is freshly bottled. A black pour wiith a small head. Aroma is strong on chocolate, actually all chocolate. Can’t pick up much else, low on hops, no flaws breaking through the chocolate. Flavor is the same, the chocolate dominates and the base beer doesnt get in the way but doesnt do anything either. The body works well though, a little thicker and velvety. The beer is not sweet so its fun to drink if you want a chocolate fix. reggiedunlop (3717) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2012
Pours deep brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of tootsie rolls. Flavor is very chocolatey...also a bit like tootsie rolls...mildly fruity but chocolate dominates. Mouthfeel is full and silky with a nice slightly sweet chocolate finish that warms a bit. Nice beer. Huhzubendah (3705) - 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. pintbypint (3575) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
650ml brown bottle - bottleshare at Ferris’. Deep borwn pour, thin swirl of beige head on top. Chocolate and cocoa nose, chocolate cake. Taste has a lot of chocolate and a bit of cherry and a dash of sour milk. Dry finish. Seemed a bit thin. Overall I wasn’t a big fan.
