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...

This was damn good. As is the case so often with this super massively strong beers though, the first few sips are the best, before the heavy alcohol and sweetness starts to get to ya

revoltingblob (45) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 28, 2016
750ml bottle. Pours a pretty auburn, red color. Nice head that quickly dissipates with very thin lacing. Nose is estery fruit characters, lots going on. Some leafy, woody things. Booze is well hidden. Taste is dry, bitter fruit and some mild to medium sweetness. Some bittering hops. Almost barleywine-esque. Very nice beer. Mouth feel is medium body and a nice crisp carbonation. Definitely would buy again.

ARH (1112) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2016 12oz bottle, poured into a goblet. The aroma is bright and intense with initial boubon vanilla and caramel notes. The aroma of caramel stays and is joined by fruity notes of nectarine, banana, citrus, pineapple, and some clove-like spices. It pours a murky auburn hue with foamy, dense soap, beige foam head that exhibits great retention and a mild lace. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium / medium low spicy bitter. The texture is thick with abundant foamy carbonation. The full body is flavors with ripe, fleshy fruit, molasses, and wood with a zippy, crisp finish of spice and molasses with late, light plum notes and it leaves a bitter wood and leafy aftertaste with a note molasses.
