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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours a massive tan head. Slightly cloudy amber in color.

S: Clovey phenols. A little roasty. Molasses. Dried bananas.

T: Flavor bomb! Hits right up front with deep caramel, banana, and slightly acidic flavors. Alcohol is high in the flavor profile. Light bitter finish balances the sweet.

M: Thick, full. Just like it should be.

D: Excellent. High ABV is the only downside (drinkability speaking).
