COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Charleville Double Chocolate Belgian Quad.

Itís difficult to express loveís 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.

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).

Deep deep brown with a small white head... dark chocolate, some milk chocolate and lots of notes of dark fruits dominate a somewhat subdued aroma.. very very very chocolatey kinda like chocolate soda thick alcoholic... full bodied fairly carbonated...

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

reggiedunlop (3397) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2012
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.

Bottle shared by CaptainCougar. Pours clear black with a medium/small fizzy light tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is huge chocolate, light toast and nutty malt, dates, figs, and prunes, and light earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant, dark fruits, chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate with a sweet finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

651mL thanks to CaptainCougar. Pours deeper amber with medium tan head. Good lace. Sweet chocolate nose with salty black olive. Taste is tangy, big chocolate box, with gritty cocoa powder and black patent malt olive and smokey ash. Not a quadrupel whatsoever. Sweet Stout perhaps. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours dark brown with thin, fizzy light beige head; short retention and no lacing. Aroma is milk chocolate, roasted malt, earthy hops, dark fruit, and vanilla. Flavor is malt forward with supporting dark fruit esters and faint hops; chocolate notes throughout with a dry, cocoa finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

22oz bottle courtesy of phaleslu: Pours a clear dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a rich cocoa and dark caramel aroma with some dark fruity notes. Starts with good fullness and chewy dark caramel maltiness with a doughy yeasty complexity. Finishes sweet and chocolaty. An interesting and unique brew.
