COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Note: Formerly brewed at Thomas Creek.

GTAEgeek (1394) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Growler from Hop City. Pours a dark, cloudy, ruby color with a thin head. The aroma is dark fruits, black pepper, molasses, and a little ripe bananas. The flavor is very sweet, and a little spicy. The palate is heavy, sticky, and the carbonation is light but lively. The finish is long and stickily sweet, with a little alcohol warming. Overall, this is surprisingly good, for an American made Quadrupel.

Westmeister (1994) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 16, 2012
On tap @ Trapeeze Pub - Pours dark brown with smaller head. Nose of dark fruits and molasses. Taste is of dark ripe fruit with brown sugar with a cognac quality. Fairly complex. The booze was only moderately hidden. This may very well be the biggest beer coming out of Georgia at the moment. Quite good.

This is a really nice beer. Chocolate malt and a nice cocoa texture. Some prune and molasses in the aroma. Some vanilla favors. Nicely complex and very drinkable. Impressed by the local guys.

bleeng (1563) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Growler from Hop City Atlanta. Pours dark brown with bubbly carbonation on the glass and a small tan head. Smoky, malty nose with a hint of spiciness. Taste is very sweet with a malty richness and a background of chocolate and spiciness. Alcohol is present but not overwhelming. A bit sticky and gooey-but in a good way. One of better American quads I’ve had.

AtlAggie (241) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Growler from The Beer Growler. Pours dark brown, little to no head. Full-bodied, good mouth feel. Lots of dark fruit (raisin, prune, etc) gives the beer a lot of sweetness, also molasses, brown sugar. Slight vinous quality. Just a tad boozy, but not bad for such a big beer. Finish is a little bready. Very tasty, if not something that I could drink lots of in one sitting.

Surpringly sweet here. Lots of caramel and nuts in this one. I’d like this a lot more if it weren’t so sweet.

jwr07 (113) - Decatur, Georgia, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Aromas of raisin, more raisin and dark fruit, and some malt on the palate. surprisingly dry and sessionable considering the abv. Overall solid effort.

deyholla (7622) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2011
On tap at ATL taco Mac. Pours a hazy deep dark orangish amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of dark fruit with spices, a bit of dark grain and a hint of backing alcohol. Flavor has dark fruits and grains with a hint of spice and a good amount of alcohol in the finish.
