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.
