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.

ordybill (1801) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 3, 2016
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.

Dark brown/amber with a small beige head, aromas of fruit, funk, and wine. Taste is smooth malt, phenols, touch of sweetness, and the finish is dry and clean. A great American interpretation of a quad.

Cybercat (5893) - Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Comes out of the tap a dark-chocolate brown that is opaque with a fairly thick light tan head. Malty, slightly spicy aroma has notes of caramel and brown sugar. Rich, sweet flavor has molasses and caramel tones, almost like a creme brulee, with hints of toffee, coffee and licorice. Very tasty, if a bit heavy on the sweetness. Smooth, full-bodied texture has a decent amount of fizz and leaves a sweet caramel finish.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - APR 9, 2012
Growler from Crafty Draught. Dark reddish brown, thin tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, plum, and loads of vanilla oak. Creamy textured. Full flavored. Tastes of prune juice, raisins, distant smoked malt, oak wood, a touch of vanilla oak. Sweet burn in the finish. The best Georgia Quad I’ve had. Rating 3300.

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.

growler. attractive clear deep reddish beer with a small head. robust, sweet, dark fruity aroma. the flavors are dark fruist, toasted marshmallow. freshly charred oak must be bringing the toasted(almost smoky) notes to the flavor. drinks almost light bodied for the style and easily palatable with a dry finish. my favorite from WH.

Gachupines (1252) - USA - JUN 26, 2013
Dark, reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma is deeply fruity, almost like a red wine with some notes of vanilla. Flavor is big malt with dark fruit and a touch of sweetness. Finishes sweet and a little thick on the tongue. A little oak underneath everything else. Deep and complex, very tasty. Wife: 4.75

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.

11 ounce pour - $8.00 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Viscous-looking, dark brown body with a slim, beige head.

Smell: Very thick malts with Eschatons of maltiness - notes of toasted bread, caramel, and butterscotch. Large grape-like scent here, coming across more like a large-sized snifter of port.

Taste: Presents a super sweet maltiness, pouring caramel and butterscotch sauce over bready, toasty, full-on chewy malts. A pass of port reduction with a hint of spice peering through the sugars. Spoonful of fruit chutney for a bit more, well, fruitiness. Warming and picking up more and more port-like tones on the heavy finish.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.

Overall: This one’s sweet, succulent, and a real slow sipper.
