Notes / Commercial Description:
”Do you know what dwells in a glass?” asks Ole, in Hans Christian Andersen's The Watchman of the Tower.

Our quadrupel ale, also meant for the mature connoisseur, is a deep and mysterious libation, dark auburn and full-bodied, its sweetness deceptive.

Fantastic. Tastes like fig and plum and at a wonderful 10.5 percent abv it really gets you there. Very slight warmness of alcohol followed by an aftertaste to die for. Fruity but not overly sweet. St. Bernardus has a son and sixth glass quadrupel is his name.

One of my favorites. The smell hits you as soon as you pour it. The taste is complex and delicious down to the last drop. Worth trying.
