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...

L (4) - Nice medium brown color.
S (3.5) - Not a lot of nose here, but kinda smells like it tastes.
T (4) - This beer has a solid taste. Not overly impressive, but good taste. A little alcohol taste, but not what I'd describe as 'boozy.'
F (4) - This beer has decent mouthfeel. Good carb.

This beer was good all around. Nothing wowed me, but I wasn't mad I drank it. Not sure I'll go out of my way to drink it again, but I'd take it over many other brews.

Boulevard Brewing Sixth Glass is a very good beer! Nice amber color. Good head and nice aroma. This tyle of beer is definitely one of my favorite go to beers. Explosion of favors. Nice finish. At 10.5%, definitely one you have to respect, but it's too goodto sip. Thankfully, not an overpowering alcohol taste. Tangy spicy finish, easy to drink.
