COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Do you know what dwells in a glass?" asks Ole, in Hans Christian Andersen’s The Watchman of the Tower. Better known for stories such as The Little Mermaid, Andersen wrote this short, cautionary tale for a somewhat older audience. Our quadrupel ale, also meant for the mature connoisseur, is a deep and mysterious libation, dark auburn and full-bodied, its sweetness deceptive. As Ole describes the glasses in turn, their contents become more ominous until, in the sixth glass...

Shared bomber with my brother. Not my favorite quad. A drinkable beer but there was nothing special or overly pleasing that would bring me back.

(Bottle) This is an excellent quad with kind of an American taste to it- more bitterness than expected. Really good quad.

TheCaptMatey (178) - Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Poured a burnt amber colour with a thick fluffy off white head. Lots of yeast sediment is floating around. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, and alcohol. Flavor is sweet caramel malts, dark fruits, bubble gum, and alcohol. Medium bodied, medium carbonation with a bitter hop finish. Flavor and alcohol was initially too abrasive, but became more enjoyable after warming up.

dmac (4532) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2015
12oz odd shaped bottle from Spirits Barnaget. Poured a super light colored body for a quad, deep syrupy burnt orange with loads of floating yeast and a super ling lasting dense foamy light beige head. Aroma of yeast, sweetness, dough, raisin, alcohol, slight nuts and dry grains. Body is perhaps medium but seems a bit light for a quad, average carbonation, and what appears to be average at best for the aftertaste. Flavor of alcohol, Belgian yeast, dark fruits, bubble gum, banana esters, dough. Good but expected more.
