Beer added by: Bitterbill on 11-15-2007

”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: pours a brownish red, it's cloudy without yeast particles. Foam is one finger high, beige and leaves no lacings on the glass.

S: raisins, figs, dates, loads of banana, alcohol and belgian yeast.

T: banana, honey, malt sweetness, dark fruits, rum and condensed milk. The aftertaste is metallic and the alcohol is there, for sure, but it isn't aggressive.

M: it's very light, small bubbles, carbonation is medium high.

O: it's a great beer. Could have been more taste, but it's complex, the flavors are all there, as is the belgian feel. I enjoyed it very much, but it didn't quite live up to my expectations. Will have again for sure though.

Drank from a goblet.

A: The beer is hazy brownish yellow in color. It poured with a finger high beige head that died down rather quickly, leaving a collar around the edge and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet fruits are present in the smell along with notes of Belgian yeast.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has lots sweetness intermingled with the fruity flavors.
M: It feels more than medium-bodied and sticky on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The strong amount of malty sweetness in this beer makes it somewhat difficult to drink, but this is something that really needs to be sipped given its strength. It definitely tastes strong, but any flavors of alcohol are very well hidden.

This beer was amber colored with a nice lingering head but too long.

It smelled like fig, raisin, and (I hate to it say it because this beer tasted so good) rubbing alcohol. I've never picked that up in a beer before.

Tastes much like it smells minus the rubbing alcohol which isn't so common for me. It was delicious.

Not so chewy, but not splashy either.

Overall, I like this beer!
