How about a big, malty beer that evokes a good red wine and with a drier finish than you’d expect at 10.5% ABV?

Eschaton is a one-of-a-kind oaked all-malt Quadrupel (or “Belgian Strong Dark” if you prefer) that abounds with dark fruit and pit fruit flavors as well as earthy spiciness. Vanilla oak and warm viniferous notes assert themselves as the beer warms to reveal additional layers of delicious complexity. 22SRM

Suggested food pairings: Lamb, rabbit, duck, Stilton cheese, Belgian chocolate, tart fruit desserts.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2014 Tasted from bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, thanks to TheBeerSommelier for this one. Pours clear orange-amber with an average beige head that slowly recedes to a thin collar. The nose is spicy caramel and toffee (typical quad), with a lightly vinous note. The flavor is more vinous and very dry Belgian spice with the toffee and caramel sweetness coming through on the back. The body is full with lively carbonation and a long vinous toffee and spicy Belgian finish.

Bottle shared by TBS at the RBWG dumpy motel Friday night tasting. Pours a clear orange-amber with no head. Notes of caramel, honey, wheat, earth, apple, oak, and mild spice. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Quad? Doesn’t make for a good one. Just a sub-par strong ale.

Taste from a 32oz growler. Mostly hazy amber orange color. Thin ring of minimal white head. Couple fine dots of lace. Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy. Light warmth. Caramel malt, some butterscotch. Bigger dark fruit. Nice aroma to this. Good longer dark fruit aftertaste. Solid, american style quad. Kind of smooth and creamy, texture is way different from american examples. But I like this. Good stuff.

Bottle @ RBWG Fart Share. Pours a hazy reddish orange appearance with a brown head. Powder cocoa, dark fruity, caramel aroma. Some bubblegum. Fairly heavy banana. A bit strong on booze and banana but I guess it does taste like a banana split.

jbruner (3996) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Pours an opaque reddish brown on tap with big fluffy tan head that leaves good lace. Aroma of Belgian yeast up front, hints of dark fruit and musky grape, banana esters. Taste follows, heavy on the Belgian not on the wood, no hint of the booze. Thicker mouth and soft carbonation, pretty nice.

Pretty good local quad. Dark brown pour. Fruity, candied sugar almost wine like. There is a malt and booze base, but not super huge like some quads. Raisins, baked bread, vanilla. Heavyish mouthfeel.
