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.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy chocolate malt and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid brew.

Bottle. Pours deep reddish brown with a creamy beige head. The aroma is loads of caramel and chocolate with some yeasty anf fruity notes. The flavour is lots of dark ripe fruit, dark chocolate caramel bons and some yeast. Long toasted sweet chocolate finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an opaque dark garnet brown with a thin light tan head that quickly disappears. Aroma is Hershey’s chocolate syrup as well as a vinous character. Taste is sweet chocolate covered raisins and buttery caramel. Some Belgian ale notes and alcohol warmth in the background. Pretty damned decent!

22oz bottle picked up at Friar Tucks, as I understand this is freshly bottled. A black pour wiith a small head. Aroma is strong on chocolate, actually all chocolate. Can’t pick up much else, low on hops, no flaws breaking through the chocolate. Flavor is the same, the chocolate dominates and the base beer doesnt get in the way but doesnt do anything either. The body works well though, a little thicker and velvety. The beer is not sweet so its fun to drink if you want a chocolate fix.

BOLTZ7555 (2704) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Nose is just a dark roasted malt and vanilla. Mocha colored pour...small eggshell head. Flavor is all cocoa, milk chocolate...lots of lactic qualities. This seems a bit unrefined. Powdery, almost...not sure how else to describe it. Huge chocolate flavor, but that doesn’t make it good.

(sampled at Dak’s Memorial Day tasting. I think Dak broke this open!). Pour dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is all milk chocolate . The flavor follows suit with sweet chocolate and some tootsie roll. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Slightly bitter finish, but balanced. Pretty nice beer with nice chocolate flavor, but the hype machine is in full tilt for this one.

deyholla (5968) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle thanks to a generous BA, shared with others. Poured a slightly hazy dark brown with a brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of chocolates with a particular note of sweet bakers chocolate coming through as well as some milk chocolate. Flavor was similarly full of chocolate that started with bakers chocolate but ended with sweet milk chocolate. Very thick on the tongue.

Location: 22 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 1/10/12

Aroma: They weren’t kidding with the name, a sweet nose that smells like basically nothing but chocolates
Appearance: Pours dark brown, with a slight orange hue, a small beige head, and some streaky lacing
Flavor: Tastes a little more complex then the nose, still really sweet and chocolaty, with fruit and caramel
Palate: The body is medium-full, with an average-to-soft carbonation, and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel
Overall Impression: This has got to be the most chocolaty beer that I have ever had. It is definitely a bit of a one-dimensional offering. The chocolate completely dominates the beer. Still though, it is pretty good, it just doesn’t have a ton of complexity to it. Style-wise, I don’t really know if it comes off as a Quad, but I don’t really know if I could put any particular style to it. It’s almost like drinking a candy bar. I got mix feelings, this one is interesting, but kind of a gimmick.
