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.

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!!!
