RATINGS: 56   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.59/5   IBU: 20   EST. CALORIES: 315   ABV: 10.5%
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: JAN 8, 2018 Can from Hop City Krog Market. Really nice chestnut colored pour with a brown head that lasts with thick lacing. The aroma has light hints of dark fruit. Nice flavor is dark malt a tart cherries with some light espresso bitterness. Nice but a little Americanized.

A lot of citrus in this like two syllable rhymes. Dark brown pour with decent head. Some florals and oak. Caramel. Jot like your average quad but still pretty decent. Tap at World of beer savannah.

Draft. Damrk brown pour. This is boozy and raisiny a bit thin and fuselly quite strong.

More of a dubbel style than what I’d think of as a quad. Lots of plums, dark berries, malt, and toast. Pretty delicious. Enjoyed it from a can, strangely enough.

kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Tap. Pours a clear dark amber body with a small tight bubbled brown head. The nose is pretty boozy with heavy dark fruits, maybe a hint of acetone. The flavor is a bit off as well, it’s just lots of boozy alcohol, some caramel malt, plum, lingering chemical like finish. Medium to full bodied with a chewy thickness and soft fizzy carbonation. Not going to pass for an authentic Belgian with this one.

12 oz. canned in 2016. Can’t recall drinking a canned Quad before; this is possibly the magnificent future that our ancestors fought and died for. Cheers, prost, salud, etc. to them! Deep mahogany body has a thin film of bubbles. Nose is clove, mild bubblegum and dark toffee. Flavors of clove, prune, bubblegum, cocoa, sassafras, oak, dark toffee and a hint of char. Medium-heavy body is chewy in a pleasant way. Has a nice balance and hides the abv well with just a touch of warming. Smooth, medium carbonation.

Poured from the tap at the Taco Mac in Atlanta, GA. The appearance is a clear reddish brown color with a thick medium sized off-white head. The aroma is full of fruit and spices. The taste is rather sweet, made up of fruit and vanilla. An outstanding beer.

12 oz bottle pours deep Amber with a off white head. Aroma of toffee, dried fruit and earthy. Taste is fruit, spice and very malty.

Drake (14358) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle shared at the MDBG tasting 4/4/16. Rating 11.7k! Dark brown, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of tart cherries and bandaid. The taste is cherries and toffee. Thin bodied, very highly carbonated. Something strange is afoot here.

slowrunner77 (13368) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Quite the foamer right out of the bottle. Had to wait some time to finish pouring gently and let sit. Still very gassy after swirling to try and knock out some of the prickly carbonation, but it was never totally right. Had nice notes of dark pitted fruits in the nose and flavor. The back end of the flavor had a slight astringency holding it back. Could be very good, but it seems I got an off one.
