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.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle, thanks to theAlum. Pours a deep brown, light comes through the edges. Nose is chocolate, faint caramel and soft malt. Nose is quite sweet. The yeast is pretty non-descript, as is the hopping. on tasting, holy cow is this sweet. Chocolate is strong as is a punch of lactose, pushing this into cloying. Hugely sweet and cloying. Not in my wheelhouse at all.

This nicely labeled 22oz bottle even looks like a fancy box of chocolates. Poured a dark brown color with a small, tan head. Aroma was heavy on the sweet milk chocolate variety, with some cocoa, and a touch of roasted malty notes. Flavor was quite enjoyable - I am particularly reminded of a canned chocolate soda that I used to drink as a kid and haven’t probably had in 20 years, but if this didn’t remind me of that one in the flavor and palate. Quite nice.

Shared by Chris. Thanks man! The beer appears dark chestnut brown with a broken head of tan bubbles. The aroma offers a lot of chocolate scents, along with a rich, dark roasted malt. Definitely a huge chocolate presence. Not sure I would identify this as a quad, but hey, it’s good stuff. Heavy chocolate presence throughout. Overall, this is ok, but not something I would regularly crave. Now that I have had it, overcoming the anticipation of never having had it, I would choose any of the standard Belgian examples of the style over this. Bonus points for chocolate deliciousness, but counteracted by lack of depth and complexity.

Sample from beerfest. Pours a murky brown color with a smaller head. Aroma was lots of chocolate, some caramel and fruits. Flavor is syrup, chocolate and fades to fruit undertones. Not sure how this is a quad. Still an ok beer. Nothing to really stand out and make you want it again.
