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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a clear medium dark reddish amber, with a fair amount of tan head. A layer retains, which leaves large splotches of lacing.

S:
Almost pungently sweet, with a lightly sour note. Notes of fruit and Belgian spices as well.

T: Sweet and complex, with notes of spice and raisin.

M: Full body, medium carbonation.

Overall, a pretty good quad. It's a slightly smoother, thicker, but boozy take on the style.
