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.

hopscotch (9258) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours dark brown with a mid-sized, off-white head. The bouquet is quite chocolaty with additional notes of cola and dried, dark fruits. Full-bodied and mildly creamy with sheepish carbonation. Like the nose, the flavor is plenty chocolaty and sweet with loads of dried dark fruits. Finishes, sweet and chocolaty with a kiss of vanilla. Big-time thanks to phaleslu for shipping this world class beer my way!

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

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Bottle thanks to billshmeinke. Pours with a clear (when held up to the light), pretty close to black hue with a small tan head. Aromas are of raisins, tons of dark fruit esters, raspberries, lots of cocoa nibs, vanilla, dark chocolate, banana, pear esters (pear drops) and maybe a bit of lactose. Flavors are of pear, chocolate, cocoa, esters, earthy, nutty and very fruity. Tons of esters (including pear and banana), some candy notes and maybe even something along the lines of peanut butter. Somewhat lively carbonation for a big beer like this. Fuller bodied. Nice.
