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.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Paper hotel cup
From: Total Wine in Ballantyne (Charlotte), N.C.
Price: $2.99
Purchased: July 30, 2014
Consumed: Aug. 2, 2014
Misc.: Best by March 10, 2016

Poured a caramel, amber color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki tan, orange head. Good amount of layered lacing along the sides of the cup. Good retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled caramel, cloves, banana, honey, boozy, tropical hops and Belgian spices.

Tasted boozy, caramel, rye, citrus notes, tropical hops, mango, Belgian spices, cloves, banana and earthy notes.

Medium body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Earthy, boozy finish.

Not as good as I’d hoped. The other Belgians from Boulevard were much better.
