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...

A: Poured from a bottle to a goblet. Had a brownish color and a cloudy texture. There was a big, creamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A strong aroma of fruit, yeast, and some malt as well. What you expect from a quadrupel.

T: Tasted of apples, dark fruit (figs, dates), Belgian yeast, malt, and a light spiciness. A complex, robust, and focused flavor. An exceptional flavor.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a lively, prickly finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a great example of an American brewery being able to make a Belgian-style beer that's indistinguishable from beers made in that country. An excellent brew.

Pours a nice hazy brown with little to no head. Smell and taste of strong alcohol but this brew is smooth. Dark fruits stick out with this one. Maybe some figs and raisins. Taste grows on you for sure as this one warms up a bit. Surprised this is from Missouri.
