”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...

A little less subtle and interesting than other quads I've tasted. Not unpleasant, but not as user-friendly.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a chalice:

Appearance: Gorgeous dark ruby color. Started off with a 2 finger head that dwindled to 1/2 a finger that has staying power.
Aroma: Belgian yeast. Spicy, musty, amazing.
Taste: Lots of spice from the yeast. Dark fruits, malt, a caramel thing going on. Prune comes up in the aftertaste. There's some alcohol in there too.
Mouthfeel: Seems about right for a quad. Not too thick, nice carbonation.
Overall: Having never heard of this brewery before, I am pleasantly surprised by how good this is. Definitely my new favorite non-Trappist Quadrupel.

Delightfully sweet and dense, a must-try for any drinker of heavier beers.

From a 12 ounce bottle. It is a chestnut color...towering head...lots of lace. The beer is hazy, with a few yeast floaties in suspension. The aroma is of yeast, spice, ripe fruit (plums) and some malt. Lots of alcohol in the taste...warmth and spice. Sweet and full, with great complexity (spice, yeast, pepper, malt, and booze). Great beer.
