Notes/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.

This is the best Quad I've had, I prefer it to Rochefort 10.

The dark fruit characters are the star in this one. Plums, raisins, fig are all easily picked out. If you like dark fruit characteristics rather than the more caramel/molasses heavy quads, this might just be the best one you can buy.

Epic Beer in my eyes. Here goes the praise.

A = Nice amber with perfect head to it about 1/2 inch of small bubbled light tan

S = A sweet smell hits first then the light malt scent

T = off the charts great. has a perfect sweetness from that caramel taste. then the malt gets you and its not dank at all just perfect

M = perfect carbonation, you can tell its got small carb bubbles and really make for a perfect cling and sweetness gives way a clean finish

I love this beer, Rochefort 8,10 and Sixth Glass Quad..my tops!!!
