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.

Tasted at the 1st annual Urban Chestnut - Wolpertinger festival in St. Louis, MO, USA from tap into sampler beer boot. Poured a very dark, opaque, reddish brown color with almost no foam. Strong chocolaty aroma, in addition to dark malts, roasted grains, mild hops and yeast esters. Flavor was dominated by chocolate too, I mean real cocoa not "chocolate" malt, to the point of excess. Unique and tasty. Well-concealed alcohol. An interesting novelty, try it for yourself, but I can’t imagine drinking a whole pint of it, much less a six pack. One and done.

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.

mcberko (5372) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a dark brown / black with a small beige head. Aroma is pure chocolate, a bit of candied sugar and some mild Belgian-esque notes. Flavour is pure liquid chocolate, a bit of dark fruits, more chocolate, and lots of candied sugar. Quite sweet but in no way cloying. Like pure liquid chocolate. Great stuff.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, spicy yeast, dark fruits, some dark and caramel malts, and light bitter notes. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A pretty good quad.

Thanks T..J. The beer pours to a deep cola colored body with a thin off-white head. The aroma is like a chocolate sundae. Lots of bananas covered in chocolate with some cream. The flavor is sweet bananas and a nice chocolate body. Like a sundae. Flavor lingers upon a medium dry body. This one works for me.

Thanks to T.J. for bringing the bomber! Poured hazy, deeper brown with a creamy, dark tan head. The aroma picked up chocolate-covered bananas plus some darker fruit upfront.. chocolate-centric, but the quad elements provided lovely depth.. sweet overall and very intriguing. The flavor found lots of cocoa nibs throughout, with darker fruit and biscuity sweetness at the core.. more toasty banana on the back-end.. very tasty stuff, but the chocolate overwhelmed all of the other interesting character. Medium-bodied and a bit too sweet on the palate.. the alcohol was totally masked.. very tasty and drinkable.
