On Tap Murky medium brown with a thin light tan head. Very strong sweet chocolate tootsie roll aromas. Slightly sour brown ale flavors but again more of the tootsie roll. Would not have guessed 11% A unfultered feel. vcsa (74) - - DEC 28, 2017

Bottle at home as "Barista Quad". Clear dark brown pour, with creme coloured head, lasting very well. Aroma is chocolate and iron. Taste medium sweet, choco and light bitter. OK carbo, full bodied, not too alcoholic for ABV11. I like heavy beers, but this is also a missed chance: very one track choco, and therefore not very special. Nice but could have been so much richer... AtronSeige (1785) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 25, 2017

Kasteel Barista Chocolate Quad
Une brune aux reflets rouges, mousse beige qui disparait assez vite. Arôme où l'on sent assez bien l'alcool, pétillante en bouche, goût chocolat et café, arrière goût chocolat qui perdure. Quick3Beers (1505) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 16, 2017
Pours a near black from a bottle with an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is of chocolate primarily, with toffee, prunes and even dried apricot. Flavor is mostly the first and last of those things, some vanilla and coffee. I was just thinking tootsie roll then saw it in the description, that's pretty apt. Good beer. gizmo_ber (221) - Steinwenden, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2017
This thing looks beautiful. A nice dark pour, with a beautiful little head on top. Smells of chocolate, and the taste is a strong, sweet chocolate. It's a bit too sweet, making it a bit hard to drink. Tastes pretty good, just wish it were slightly subtler. wiedrzensky (988) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 14, 2017
On tap. Pours dark with thick beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, almond, cocoa. Taste is light bitter, slightly acidic notes, lot of chocolate on tongue. Heavy body, slick texture, soft carbonation, light coffee bittery finish. Pinball (12568) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2017
as barista chocolate quad.
clear dark brown, smooth small light brown head.
Aroma is dominated by chocolate , not super dark chocolate, but not sweet chocolate either. say 50% pure chocolate or thereabouts, below the chocolate i sense some dried dark fruits.
flavor is a fairly weird sour dark dried fruits with notes of chocolate, and a strong chocolate aftertaste. Palate is quite nice, but i can't get used to the sour chocolate flavor. so weird.
