COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Charleville Double Chocolate Belgian Quad.

It’s difficult to express love’s nuances much like the complexity of this Belgian style chocolate quad. You might use a box of chocolate to express your love; we use it to demonstrate our passion for great beer.

Thanks T..J. The beer pours to a deep cola colored body with a thin off-white head. The aroma is like a chocolate sundae. Lots of bananas covered in chocolate with some cream. The flavor is sweet bananas and a nice chocolate body. Like a sundae. Flavor lingers upon a medium dry body. This one works for me.

Pours dark black/red with thin off white head, aroma has notes of big, big chocolate, banana, some dark fruit and a touch of alcohol. Taste is chocolate, sweet banana, some candied dark fruit, a bit of a sweet finish.

Had at The Shaved Duck on draft. Nose has some chocolate and a bit of alcohol sting. Taste is of overwhelmingly chocolate sweetness. Very thin mouthfeel. Too thin for this beer. Interesting to taste, but not very enjoyable over the long haul.

22oz bottle picked up at Friar Tucks, as I understand this is freshly bottled. A black pour wiith a small head. Aroma is strong on chocolate, actually all chocolate. Can’t pick up much else, low on hops, no flaws breaking through the chocolate. Flavor is the same, the chocolate dominates and the base beer doesnt get in the way but doesnt do anything either. The body works well though, a little thicker and velvety. The beer is not sweet so its fun to drink if you want a chocolate fix.

Sampler at the W&C in Ballwin, Mo. It poured a brown color with a large tan head. The aroma was mostly chocolate with some minor yeast. The flavor was mostly chocolate with some sugar and a ton of booze. The chocolate wasn’t overwhelming, just a little more that expected.

Draft served in a snifter at International Tap House in Soulard. Pours an opaque dark brown color with a small beige ring for a head. Very surprised this is a quad based on what it smelled and tasted like. Aroma is heavy on dark and baker’s chocolate notes, along with vanilla, dark fruits, woody and earthy notes, caramel, and booze. Almost smells like a bourbon barrel-aged beer. Flavor carries a little more of the quad characteristics, with more fruity, earthy notes and some yeast to go with the heavy dose of chocolate. Some warming alcohol late. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, boozy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. It seems like I keep finding these surprisingly great Charleville beers at iTap and I hope that trend continues.

Now named box of chocolate. Pour is a brown with a large tan head. Aroma is all things chocolate with some fruity yeast. Flavor is again mostly chocolate with some Belgain sugar and lots of booze. They got the chocolate and Belgian quad thing right but this does not hide the alcohol well and i would have given it a better score if it did.

Sampled at St. Louis Microfest 2010 - Pours dark brown with a small tan had. The aroma has lots of smooth chocolate, thick toffee malt and caramel with a distinct Belgian yeastiness. The body is thick and chewy with gentle flowing carbonation. The flavor starts off with chocolate milk mixed with Belgian yeastiness along with lots of cream, vanilla and pleasing abv warmth. The finish has heat and cream. Nice interesting beer.
