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...

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2011 Bottle poured into a tulip glass, pours a dark brown, big thick head that lasts, lots of carbonation. Medium mouthfeel. Tastes of figs, raisins, very typical of Belgian style quads. The Sixth Glass is quite a bit sweeter than any other quad I’ve tasted. The sweetness masks the alcohol a bit, but there is still a good bite. Well balanced and very drinkable. One of my new favorites!

bottle - Pours dark amber brown with a small light tan, lingering head. It smells of sweet malt, Belgian yeast, and dark fruit. The flavor is sweet malt and dark fruit with mild spice and a gentle bubbly palate. There’s some alcohol apparent but it’s not strong. Smooth, enjoyable, and full. Well made. I had this bottle for a year or so.

Courtesy of Tenesseejed420: Pours a reddish/brown color with a tannish head. Aroma is very fruity, giving away a hint of booze as well, but only a wee hint. Taste is excellent. I should say more probably. There is plenty of sweetness. A good amount of spice is also present. I thought the alcohol was covered up very well (at least a whole a lot better than the last abt I had.... the one by Urthel). A fair amount of hops that foster a linger in the mouth, but this beer doesn’t take it to any experimental levels. Some yeast in there adding some extra zest to the beer. Mostly the flavors are sweet and fruity, but there is a hell of a lot complexity here that creates a good drinking experience. Gives you a solid buzz as well if you drink the whole bottle.

Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Cloudy maroon color with light beige head. Aroma is butterscotch, pine, and apricot jam. flavor is at first very fruity, thick, then perfumey and really fizzy. Mouthfeel is a little strong, not that subtle. I would have liked something a bit smoother, but it’s still a great beer. Bottle from Midtown Wine and Spirits, Nashville, TN

rust-colored, cloudy, beige head. spot alcohol, spice, and a bit of bubblegum are in the aroma. flavor has a bit of raisin/prune, hint of candied orange (especially the aftertaste), and a fair amount of alcohol in the finish.

fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Sixth Glass is the color of iced tea with a slight ruddiness and a nice, thick tan head. The aroma is sweet and I primarily smelled malt and fig. The taste is roasty and caramel that goes down very smoothly with a tiny bit of spiciness in the finish. The way it coats the tongue and throat allows the flavor to linger nicely in your mouth.

njordan (5) - Missouri, USA - MAR 15, 2011 does not count
750ml Corked bottle. Nice golden color with off-white head. Many flavors throughout, very spicy, boozy, a little fruity. Dry with a decent amount of carbonation. Enjoyable.

3.7
MOboy (504) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Pours a clear, reddish brown with a quality white foam. Bread, raisins, alcohol and dark, stone fruits are evident in the aroma with fruitcake and alcohol comprising the flavor. Appropriate carbonation and a nice dryness make this a really enjoyable beer.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2011
[Bottle] Pours a cloudy orange/amber color with a small pillow of dense white foam. Aroma of clove, Belgian yeast, sweet malts and peach/apricot. Rich flavor of sweet caramel, spices, nutmeg, clove, yeasty notes, pear, peppercorns and light brown sugar. Smooth and complex flavor profile seems well aged. Light alcoholic warming in the finish, but not a strong as you might expect from the ABV. A very tasty beer overall.

Bottle, twice. This rating is going to reflect the bottle I had about a year ago at the Flying Saucer in Austin. A nice little quad with dark fruit, sweet caramel malt, alcohol, belgian candies, and spice. It doesn’t seem to get better with aging....
