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. As Ole describes the glasses in turn, their contents become more ominous until, in the sixth glass...

Clear reddish brown colored beer with a tall tan colored head.

Smells sweet and sour with a strong herbal scent. Scents of brown sugar and ginger with a little allspice.

Starts out little bit sweet with brown sugar as an after taste. Phenols give a faint bubblegum taste. Slight banana flavor.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall good but not world clase.

Thanks to Mora2000:
750 ml cork-caged bottle - Batch 69365 - Best by 12/12 - poured into a wide-mouth glass, as suggested:

Pours auburn with ruby highlights and a thick, fluffy, though somewhat fizzy, off-white head.

The smell is fruity, especially black cherries, with caramel/toffee and grassy/herbal notes.

The taste is sweet upfront - caramelish - and fruity with grassy/floral/herbal notes that lend bitterness. Some booze shows in a semi-drying finish.

It has a creamy-ish smooth medium-to-full body with some effervescence.

A nice take on a Belgian quad... Sweet, fruity and caramelish, but balanced with a dry touch in the finish. Drinks well despite the boozy character.
