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.

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.

Sample at Hopfest 2015. Comes a dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, and fruit. Taste is chocolate, dark fruit, caramel, spice, and vanilla. Very nice.

Thanks JCB for sharing. Brown with a small tan head. Nose shows lots of sweet chocolate, lighter roast, light dark fruits. Flavor is kinda strange. I get some vegetal notes (brussels sprouts??), more cocoa, light roast. Not my box of chocolates.

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).

(bottle - 22 oz) Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. Cocoa powder and milk chocolate in the aroma. Some light burnt sugar. Rich chocolatey flavor at the start with a smooth and creamy middle and a sweet finish. Was surprised that it was a quad and not a stout.

This beauty was courtesy of Strykzone. From the 22 oz bottle this poured coal black with a medium sized tan head. Nose of chocolate, ripe dark fruit, and vanilla . Rick in body with s smooth creamy mouthfeel and a touch of alcohol. Flavor is foremost chocolate, but the vanilla and ripe fruit balance it out. Finishes like chocolate bar. Excellent.

jrallen34 (3494) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2011
pours a dark brown thatís a bit watery, light tan head, ok ring... the aroma is outstanding, smells like a trappist quad mixed with Dr. Pepper and chocolate, additional notes of dark fruits, unique twist on a quad... the taste is not as successful, comes across a bit fake, summed up simply as chocolate soda, a little too carbonated, but drinkable incredibly so for something that is 10.5%, mostly chocolate... not up to the hype but very solid

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.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - 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.

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.
