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.

Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest. Chocolate dominates the aroma and flavors. Also some caramel and syrup flavors in the beer. The beer has a syrupy, sweet flavor. Interesting beer, but I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to try again.

nimbleprop (4536) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 6, 2012
22oz bottle pours an opaque, mahogany brown with some creamy, white head. Nose is straight chocolate, brewers licorice, some rye malt maybe, Hershey’s syrup. Flavor is 100% milk chocolate, light vanilla, Hershey syrup, dark chocolate, some crystal malt. Full bodied, chocolatey finish. Delivers exactly what it promises.

illidurit (2114) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle at the May 2012 iteration of the Santa Cruz tasting series. Well this is really chocolatey. Mainly tootsie rolls and chocolate syrup, but also a little like chocolate soda. Candied dark fruits make a minor appearance along with a bit of alcohol sharpness. Delicious in small servings.

Bottle shared by JCB. Pours reddish brown, dark and without a ton of carbonation. Nose is chocolate and nougat, or as JCB pointed out, Tootsie roll. Not very much like a quad. A bit sweet for me, but not bad.

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, dark fruits, grapes, light banana, and a hint of alcohol. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a small beige head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of milk chocolate/chocolate syrup. It finishes with a pretty big sugary fruitiness and light-moderate candi sugar. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, the sugary sweetness is a bit too much for my liking.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Bomber from phaleslu (I think) - thanks! Pour is a touch flat, perhaps, with a handsome mahogany color done a slight disservice by relative lack of body and carbonation. Massive Tootsie Roll aroma that tends to crowd out most of the character I expect in a quad. This is borne out in the taste too, with only perfunctory yeast, fruits, and Belgian sugars. The Roll dominates, and perhaps more complexity would have come through with a different rendition of the choc (more bitter perhaps).

Shared bottle atDLD, thanKs guy.... Woody dark fruit, cherry, and strong alcohol aroma. Hazy brown with a small beige head. Earthy, tart dark fruit, cherry, and big alcohol... almost brand-like flavor. Medium body. Goodness.

Bomber. Dark pour with a quickly dissipated head. Nose is some chocolate but not as much as expected. Also some of the typical quad notes of dark fruit, bready malts, and raisins. Taste is totally different in that the chocolate is very pronouced and the Quad characteristics take a back seat but they are there. Interesting beer to say the least ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours deep brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of tootsie rolls. Flavor is very chocolatey...also a bit like tootsie rolls...mildly fruity but chocolate dominates. Mouthfeel is full and silky with a nice slightly sweet chocolate finish that warms a bit. Nice beer.
