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...

750 ml bottle from Canada Craft Club. Pours a hazed orange/amber colour with good-sized, creamy eggshell-coloured head. Aroma is sweet with lots of fruitiness, bread, wood, leather and spicy rye. Flavour has sweet plum, raisin, strawberry, brown sugar, bread, wood, peppery rye and clove. Definite alcohol presence. Big body. Impressive.

BeerRenter76 (1004) - Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Originally rated on 1/6/09. A deep murky amber body with small yeast floaters were tossed about by the plentiful carbonation, the massive head left decent lace. Aromas of apple, plum, bready yeasts, earth and some spices. Flavor had all of those attributes with a slight alcohol burn in the finish, that warms up the belly. Overall it was a fairly good beer, thats worth a try.

DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 20, 2017

4.3
KevinReddirt (151) - Midland, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Purchased this 750 ml bottle while on a trip to Dallas. Poured into my favorite snifter it yields an attractive dark red-amber body, active carbonation and an eggshell white foam going as tall as you want. The scent gives red plum, currant and a whiff of spice. A sip gives a yeasty malt, cloves, ripe dark fruit, banana. Strong and gracious. A nice mouthfeel with the plentiful effervescence. Yowza. This is fine. I am late to the quadrupel game but I am enjoying the catch up.

3.7

Bottle, 330 ml from Beergium, shared with JFK10000, Max and Domagoj. Pours deep orange, small yellowish head. Sweet, caramel, honey, yeast, bit spicy. Medium to full bodied.
