A - Pours dark brown body with a light tan head.

S - Smells like fresh baked brownies... OMG. Just a symphony of chocolate.

T - I've had a lot of "chocolate" beers and this has got to fit the profile to a T. Sweet, a bit of caramel and of so chocolatey.

M - A bit thin on the body with a lower carbonation for the style.

O - Seems like a dessert beer and man it delivers.

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.
