"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...

LarsEngen (367) - Sandvika, - MAR 16, 2013
75 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Batch 612300. Pours a bit hazy amber with a large light brown fizzy head that leaves a good lacing. Nice aroma of dark friuts with some notes of smoke and alcohol. A bit salty and sour with some barrel aging notes to it. Some alcohol notes as well. Light body. Ok Abt but a bit of the top.

Malty alcohol aroma. Light, airy head that dissipates quickly. Sweet, balanced flavor of red fruits. Light-bodied.

Mild plum and prune nose. Cloudy rust, thick tan head, decent lace. Maraschino cherries, plum, new plastic. Full body, soft carbonation, alcohol well-masked. Tasty, a little lacking in compexity for the style, but quite nice.

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.

Pours a deep, dark amber color. Aromas of mildly spiced fruitcake. Full bodied with a rich malty palate. Almost chewy. Dark stone fruit finish with boozy warmth.

750ml bottle, thanks Harri. Pours caramely amber colour, medium sized beige head stays and leaves lacing. Molasses, toffee, honey, tomato juice, spices in aroma. Spices, bittersweet, malt, bitters, booze, molasses, raisins in taste. Tannin aftertaste. Medium to full bodied, below average carbo. Agressive booze.

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.
