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.

Bottle shared downtown during RBWG 2014 - Asheville Late-Nite. Cheers! Pours clear amber with a bubbly, off-white head. Rich malts in the nose, figs, ripe fruits. Big sweet flavor with robust bready malt character, dates, moderate toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish, with sticky sugars, ripe fruits, brown sugar, toffee, plums. Ticks all the quad boxes. Solid overall.

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.

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.

DrSilverworm (9102) - 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.

deyholla (8902) - 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.

BVery (8686) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle. Murky deep amber pour with a small light cream head. Aroma is dark fruit, red wine - but not terribly strong. Taste is boozy right away, then kind of a blend (borderline muddled) of dark fruit, vanilla, more sweetness probably coming from the booze). This isn’t bad, but it just doesn’t seem to pull together all that well either.
