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.

A - Solid 2-finger light tan head tops the hazy amber beer. Lacing continues as the beer disappears. Very enticing carbonation.

S - Solid malt nose. Sweet fruit, caramel, clove, pepper, plum.

T - Sweet, intense caramel malts are a flavor boost. Nice frutiness follows the nose. Spicy finish.

M - Smooth drinking especially for 10.5% ABV. Just the right amount of syrupiness.

O - Just an outstanding Quadrupel. Packed full of malty flavor, yet highly drinkable.
