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.

I wasn't in love with this one. Just way too heavy for me, although it would probably be a great winter sipper. For the months changing to warmer weather though, this was just overly heavy. It was toasty, malty, and thick. Notes of spice and cinnamon throughout, with a heavy body and mouth feel. This is a pretty rich brew.

Poured from 750 ml corked bottle; it presented a caramel, herbs aroma with presence of alcohol, deep dark amber color, frothy tan foam head, medium sweetness and spicy taste (apple cider), thin feel, light medium body, I like the entire series of Smokestack brews from Boulevard but this is just average.
