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.

3.85/5  rDev -7.5%

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.

Strong phenolics, but balanced overall, with a subtle cherry flavor. Light in colour, but a nice American take on the style.

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