Part of a trade with my buddy Andrew out in St Louis, Thanks man!
Poured a dark brown into an "Ales of the Revolution" tulip glass, tiny ring of tan colored head quickly fades. This quad smells A hell of a lot like tootsie rolls and cocoa powder. Taste Very sweet, rich chocolate flavors, some dark fruits, belgian yeast, and boozy underneath. This is one of the better chocolate beers I've had, I'm generally not a big fan of Belgian style quads but the play on this is exceptional. Would love to have another one of these.

A- Pours a very deep brown, pretty much black in color, with a small, 1 finger head. Head is frothy and creamy looking and retains a little while. Lacing is pretty good.
S- Dark fruits and chocolate are the dominant scents in this beer. The chocolate flavors are semisweet in nature and fairly strong.
T- Starts off with some strong dark fruit flavors that remind me somewhat of raspberries. Then the chocolate takes over almost the entirety of the flavor until the end. Chocolate goes from sweet and creamy to more of a chocolate truffle flavor that borders on more fruity. The truffle flavor is the lingering taste after the drink ends.
M- Thick and creamy and borderline decadent to drink. The alcohol is undetectable through the strong chocolate and dark fruit flavors. Very smooth and dangerously drinkable, this beer is a real treat as far as feel goes.
Overall, this beer lives up to its name. From the smell to the taste, right down to the quad base flavors combining with the chocolate to create a truffle flavor, this beer is slightly sweet and very rich.
