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. 1FastSTi (3358) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2011
Thanks T..J. The beer pours to a deep cola colored body with a thin off-white head. The aroma is like a chocolate sundae. Lots of bananas covered in chocolate with some cream. The flavor is sweet bananas and a nice chocolate body. Like a sundae. Flavor lingers upon a medium dry body. This one works for me. Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2011
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. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Tasted 8/19/11. 22oz bomber. Unactivated pour leaves a ton of dark sediment in the bottle. Pours opaque brown with a webbed khaki head. Aromas of Cherry 7Up, Sugary lemon and lime candy flavor. Mild chocolate and fudge nuance. Full bodied and super sweet! The palate screams fudgy chocolate icing. Overwhelming sweetness from the malts and the other ingredients. Nice blend of the Belgian yeast and dark fruity esters, chocolate and fudgy flavors. The alcohol is muted and gets lost in the cola, syrupy sweetness. Yeah, the sweetness is a tad overt. Even at this age. A crazy banana ester pops up in the finish, and actually blends seamlessly with the melted chocolate ice cream flavor. Crazy. Tmoney99 (15116) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy chocolate malt and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid brew.

Pours an opaque dark garnet brown with a thin light tan head that quickly disappears. Aroma is Hershey’s chocolate syrup as well as a vinous character. Taste is sweet chocolate covered raisins and buttery caramel. Some Belgian ale notes and alcohol warmth in the background. Pretty damned decent! merc7186 (3160) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2014

On tap. Poured a dark brownish color with an off-white head. Aroma of dark fruit and only a hint of chocolate. Taste of dark fruit, bit of coffee and chocolate. Muted bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Fairly full body, smooth with the chocolate becoming more pronounced as it warms. Enjoyable to relax with.
