”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...

12oz into a snifter, dated best before 07/27/13

Pours a rich amber orange with a small head that doesn't stick around. Ring of foam around the edges, pretty clear in the body for the style.

Dark candied fruits like cherries, plum, and figs greet you with a touch of alcohol. Continues with the sweet, almost syrupy like aroma.

More candied fruits and booze. Figs, dates, and cherries. Warming as well, with some cake-like flavors in there too.

Chewy with warming alcohol. Minimal carbonation.

Very sweet, candied dark fruit with alcohol. Not subtle or complex, but not bad.

Gigantic tight off white head sticks around for most of the beer. Nice amber cherry clear filtered color.

Very nice aroma. Cherries, tobacco, dark fruits. Nice warm spicy aroma comes on towards the back end.

The taste doesn't deviate far from the aroma just a little more complexity. A slight twang from the yeast. Cherry and dark fruit flavor melds nicely with a spicy alcohol bite. A bit of caramel is present. There is a lot of depth in this very nice brew.

Nice carbonation and creamy chewy body. Quite an alcohol kick. I'm a fan of this brew not quite on the same level as my love for the bbq, but very close. This guy stacks up quite nicely with any Belgian quad.
