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...

750ml bottle. Pours a hazy red-brown with sediment floating around and a large, frothy, long lasting, beige head that laces. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, prune, raisin, spice, alcohol and yeast. Sweet flavour of overripe fruit, caramel malt, spice and warming alcohol in a dry, mildly bitter finish. Medium to full body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Very nice.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2016 Piana żółta, sycząca, gruba i nietrwałaa. Barwa miedziano bursztynowa, mętna, z pływającymi kawałkami drożdży. Aromat zdecydowanie zdominowany brązowym cukrem i kandyzowanym owocami, do tego tradycyjnie rodzynki, daktyle, figi, jakiś likier morelowy, landrynki, zioła... W smaku jest fajna słodycz, faktycznie taka kandyzowana, jest całe spektrum suszu, karmelu, melasy, jest rozgrzewający alkohol w likierowej postaci i nieco przypraw na finiszu. Goryczka nieduża, lekko migdałowo głogowa. Wysycenie drobne, niskie do średniego (możliwe, że jeśli się piwa nie odgazuje przed otwarciem to jest średnie lub wysokie), bardzo przyjemne w odczuciu - trochę oleiste, trochę "mięsiste", przede wszystkim aksamitne.
Przyjemny quad, dość grzeczny, nieskomplikowany, nieco "cukrowy", dość słodki, ale to ostatnie akurat mi odpowiada, bo wytrawność w tym stylu to zło.

Mindig érdekes élményt nyújt, amikor egy nem belga ital szolgáltat autentikusnak ható belga élményt, különösen pedig akkor, ha történetesen egy amerikai főzetről beszélünk. Így történhetett, hogy ez a tökéletes belga mondandóval felruházott kansas-i quadrupel is éppoly lenyűgözőnek hatott, mint a számomra oly kedves belga társai. Rubinos reflexeket megcsillantó teste, vattacukor-habja, simogató illatfoszlányai igen kedvező előjelként értelmezhetőek, a megnyugtató aszalványos, fűszeres, gumicukros aromák mindenféle jó sejtetői. Pezsgő, élénk teste hamarosan csendesedik kissé, egyre mélyebbé válik a tartalom, kiteljesednek a korianderes, trüffeles, medvecukros, datolyás, csemegekosaras ízjegyek. Kenyérhéjas maláta, sokszínű élesztő, csípőskés alkoholfátyol, mind-mind kellemes percek kísérői voltak.

$3.10 bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours hazy brownish-red with a large orange-tinted beige bead. Aroma is black cherry, banana, yeast, bubblegum, raisin, and grass. Flavor is very similar with a hell of a bite at the end! Bitter cherry, bubblegum, yeast, raisin, grass, apple, toffee, glue, and alcohol. Nice.

Brick red with tan head. Caramel, toffee, dark ripe fruit, faint chocolate, and a noticeable boozy note as it finishes. Medium bodied. Lovely quad.

Pours a hazy reddish brown with a creamy beige head. Aroma is wonderful and everything I wanted - lightly roasted malt - deep and nutty. Very light alcohol aroma. Flavor is amazing - medium body with lots of sweet toast. Feels full and pleasant on the palate. Fantastic beer - glad I grabbed 2 bottles.

This beer reminded me quite a bit of Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel. Not quite as good as my favorite beer, Rochefort 10, but still quite good and will definitely get again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
