"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...

I feel like this is a could of been beer. The best part about this beer is it's high alcohol content. The taste is nice, with the dark fruit Belgian style. However, it is too carbonated for me -- a little less and it would be perfect for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour from bottle in San Antonio Texas (6af5). Deep amber pour with lasting tan head, this full bodied sweet beer masks it's alcohol well. Good for a glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark ambor color with a rich head. As the beer settles, there are notes of caramel, toffee and bourbon. The flavor hangs with a mild hop and malty alcohol bite. Head pours a light tan to off white color. Tight bubbles with a low to moderate head retention. Creamy, caramel flavor from the head. At first opening (12 oz bottle), there is a bit of fizz for this style of beer; however, it settles nicely. Complimentary pairing with a bergenost cheese. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stuedmaster (235) - Vista, California, USA - JUL 11, 2014
750 ml. bottle on sale for $9 at La Vista Liquor. Nice garnet/ruby red pour with a thick, creamy tan head that lasts and leaves thick lacing. Complex aroma of caramel, toffee, toasted grain, cherry, plum, banana, honey, cacao, slight resin, and booze. Flavor is sweet fruits and candy, with alcohol a considerable presence. Full bodied, sticky texture, soft carb., long, sweet and slightly bitter finish. This is a decent quad, not sure if I will seek this out again, but it sure packs a punch for the price.

Tall, tan head, dark amber color. Not a strong aroma. Sweet flavor with very little bitterness, medium body. Some banana, especially in the aftertaste. Pretty good.
