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...

This is one of those beers that tastes better with every drink. The first drink your like OMG WTF and your mouth is almost hot feeling. then by the last drink you have an oddly clear buzz and your left wanting another bottle... I love ales but this was almost too strong for me.. It barely tasted like a beer. I think the high note of this beer is the complexity of the smells and taste.. and the warmer it got the more it changed.. at nearly 10 bucks a bottle I honestly don't know If I'll get more. But it's definitely one to try for sure! But be warned the taste is extremely potent.. I think the majority of beer drinkers would think this beer is hard to drink. It doesn't exactly go down smooth. But then again, it has 10.5% alc so... that's to be expected. Some wines have less..

A: A dark, but almost glowy amer with a light tan head.

S: Belgian candi syrup, cloves, nutmeg and dark fruit in the nose.

T: Cloves, nutmeg, candi syrup, dark fruits, citrus fruits.

M: Medium bodied and a bit harsh, probably more alcohol than carbonation.

O: Not the best quad out there, but definitely worth a try. I'd like to try an aged bottle or the bourbon barrel aged version.
