On tap at a new joint in Arkansas. This is a straight up chocolate truffle. Sweet and chocolatey. Doesn't disappoint-hits the name straight on. Well done.

A Quad? Seriously? I'm not arguing, I'm just saying this tastes nothing like any other quad I've encountered, and that's totally fine by me. I'd have thought porter or stout judging by the flavors, which are amazing.

Pours a smooth chocolate brown with minimal head. Completely opaque. No lacing on the glass when swirled.

Aroma is sweet milk chocolate. Some cocoa powder and caramel. Sweet heavy cream straight from the bulk tank on a dairy farm. A chocolate lovers delight.

Taste is like the aroma. Sweet milk chocolate. Vanilla, cream, molasses and caramel blend into a sweet chocolate milkshake. Some fruits on the back end. Ripe plum, figs, and dates. Hint of spice including cinnamon, nutmeg and gingerbread. Tastes linger on the tongue.

Thick, cream-like mouth feel. Almost no carbonation.

This beer is a chocolate lovers delight. Rich aroma and taste. Sweet without being cloying. Glad I have a second bottle to enjoy later.
