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. As Ole describes the glasses in turn, their contents become more ominous until, in the sixth glass...

Look: Alburn brown with an off white lacing with active sediments. Smell: Candy sugar, yeast, plum and raisin notes, spice and bread dough. Taste: Explosion of candy sugar, belgian yeast, spice, plums, chocolate notes and alcohol. Feel: Medium body, mild carbonation.

Overall: This is a very good offering of an American Brewer trying a Belgian Style. The flavors are pinpoint to a BSDA. The only thing that lets you know it is an American brewer is the carbonation. The body and carbonation is a bit light for a Quad. Enough said this is worthy.

Nice beer but it is a bit too hoppy for a quad.

Quad
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with tall, creamy, long-lasting, off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of funky yeast, grassy hops, caramel malt and dark fruit. Body is full, creamy and crisp. Taste is of herbal hops, caramel malt, sherry, brown sugar and dark fruit. Complexity of flavor is increasing as beer warms up. Finish is long and dry. Outstanding brew.
