”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...

Thanks to a coworker who sent this up to me from MO.
Poured in to a pint glass.

A: This beer pours a hazy, deep copper color with a three finger of foamy, sudsy, khaki head that recedes to a film. Minor wisps of lacing are left on the glass.

S: Nose is yeast, grape, raisin, and a nice hearty caramel malt presence.

T: Taste starts with light grape and caramel notes. Yeast comes through and punctuates the middle. Caramel presence then comes back in with a lot of raisin and date flavoring. Touch of dry bitterness in the final flavoring.

M: Lighter side of medium bodied, higher carbonation, nice, crisp, prickly body.

O: Goes down easy, tasty, not filling, well hidden kick, nice representation of style. Not one of my favorite styles but this is a well balanced, and tasty beer that could have more than one of.

I poured a bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance- Poured a cloudy amber color with a thick white head that lingered for a very long time. Fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Yeast and raisin.

Taste- Spices and raisin with a bit of alcohol warmth.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and creamy. Nice carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall- Somewhat enjoyable. I don't think I will buy it again. Not bad, just not for me.
