Bottle (2012)

(Aged for 1+ year)

Dark brown in body with a short near-white white head. Leaves the glass messy and oily. Pretty and appropriate for a chocolate quad, I'd have to assume.

My favorite aspect of this beer is its wonderful aroma. This smells just like mom's freshly baked brownies with the slightly crispy, just nearly-burnt edges--which happen to be my favorite part! There are some complementary dark fruit as well, especially as it warms, but I'm in love with the crispy, freshly-baked brownie aroma.

The flavor follows the aroma, with chocolate brownie and dark fruits combining quite nicely. Minimal yeast character, which is surprising for a quad where that aspect really has the opportunity to shine. Some brown sugar/candy sugar sweetness complements as well.

Medium to near fully body with low carbonation.

Very nice. This was a great surprise for me at a tasting full of incredible beers.

Enjoying this with my good friend pschul4. May he live long and prosper.

A: Pours dark brown with little head and little retention. About what I would expect.

S: Smells extremely sweet and sugary with notes of caramel and chocolate.

T: Wow... seriously the chocolatiest tasting beer I have ever consumed. Extremely sweet, with hints of caramel, and oddly, I even taste what seems like a bit of banana flavor. At 10.5% ABV you can't even taste a hint of alcohol.

M: Pretty thin, but I feel as though the thinness is appropriate based on the taste of the beer.

O: Like I said, the chocolatiest beer I've ever had, which as a result I have to give this beer high marks. Very tasty.

Another big thanks to the only 100+ yr old I know on this site, FTowne!

A- Pours an average brown with relatively little head. Nothing to write home about, but no negative aspects. It looks like a quad....lulz

S- Hints of chocolate but mostly just some malts. What kind of malts are in quads anyway?

T- Oh goddddaaamnnn! Where did all that fuxin chocolate come from?? This is the mostly chocolatey beer I've ever tasted. Even more than Choklat! Those same malts from the smell make an appearance as well.

M- Decently prickly and the booze is very well covered

O- This was crazy chocolatey, would drink this box of chocolates again
