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...

Poured a ruby red brown with one finger head that died quick. Has a slightly boozy aroma, dark fruits and figs (maybe raisins) are a tad noticeable and there are some sweet malts. Beer is medium bodied, smooth, real sweet for some reason, good amount of caramel, candi sugar and a touch of fruit sweetness. Good balance as I get some dark fruits as well and there is a hearty, heavy finish. Not a bad American quad at all and well worth the low pricepoint; not the tastiest or most complex quad but it got the job done.

This is a solid if slightly different quad, with lots of peppery notes, along with the usual fig and other dark fruit tastes. Not as bready or complex as the best in this style, but it still provides a satisfying experience for lovers of quads. Starts out good in taste, if a little thin, but then gets better as it warms. You also start to notice the alcohol heat as you drink longer, maybe just a little too much. The aroma is nice, with figs and some alcohol predominating. Very nice and the best I've had from Boulevard so far, although I look forward to Saison Brett.
