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.

Hazy dull light brown, aroma is malty lightly fruity, good hop balance, a light fruity tartness, spicy...I like this. The unfiltererd character is quality.

adnielsen (9460) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2014
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.

deyholla (6974) - 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.

DrSilverworm (6944) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2014
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.

phaleslu (6810) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2014
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.

Bottle shared by the Beer sommelier during RBWG. Pours a hazy dark amber brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, banana, dark fruit, mild spices, a hint of a vinous note, brown sugar. Decent, not great.
