"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...

Bottle. Aroma is strong with alcohol and sweet malts. Notes of dark fruit, yeast, and banana come out. I also pick up on some yeast. The palate is smooth and a little chewy at the same time time. It the flavor is sweet with a little sourness to it, it finishes dry with a nice long lasting aftertaste.

Zymurgeist2 (1889) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Pours a nice copper color with a beige head that lingers on the collar. Nose is nice esters - the Belgian yeast really stands out. Mouthfeel is medium full of biscuit and yeast. Lots of alcohol on this malty beast. Both the fore-palate and finish show lots of gas. Some bitterness shines through late. The alcohol masks most of the Belgian yeast.

Zenwolf (269) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
Bottle. Fantastic Quad. Recommendation from a co-worker who is from Kansas, but isn’t a beer guy. Loved the bottle art.. probably would have picked it up just on looks alone. Pours a deep amber-brown color. Smells like heaven.. tons of sweet dark fruitsm raisins and plum. Very well balanced sugars, fruit and a tad bit of floral. Snuck up on me even though I was expecting it.. made for a very interesting work dinner following..

750 from Market of Choice. Brownish Red pour with a huge off-white head that sticks around for ages. Smells of dark fruit, booze, yeast, caramel and bread. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel, pepper, yeast, booze and a surprising amount of grapefruit and other bitter fruit. Smooth mouthfeel, nice alcohol burn. Delicious beer.
