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 into a Boulevard Smokestack tulip glass.

The beer is a dark honey amber color. A cream colored head recedes to a huge circle of foam with light watery spots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is slightly boozy, but bubblegum and bready yeasts come out.

The beer starts tangy with pineapple fruitiness paving the way for a bubblegum sweet middle and a piny, bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is pretty heavy.

Overall, flavorful, but too sharp and boozy for me to enjoy much of.

A-Very cloudy deep orange, almost ruby. Two finger head that attempts to leave some lacing.

S-Yeast, clove, banana, dark fruits, some alcohol.

T-Clove, banana, yeast, caramel, dark fruits. Nice spice. Not much bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, well carbonated and the alcohol from the nose is hidden here.

O-A good quad. But it doesn't hold a candle to the belgain/trappist ones.
