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 a wonderful beer. It’s complex flavors liven the senses just as quickly as the large amounts of alcohol numbs them. This beer’s head is as short as a marines hair cut. Reporting for duty it leads the charge to battle beer boredom. An initial blast of freshness and hops. As the hops fizzle away the tongue relishes in rich caramel, oak, cherries, and ale. Every sips swings between fresh and light, and rich and smooth. The aroma is great, but it is not strong.

Wow what a beer.

When I heard Boulevard was brewing a Quad, I honestly didn't know what to think. I felt it would be good... but never in my wildest imagination did I expect it to be 'this' good.

This stuff rules!

The beer pours to a light brown with a nice above average head. The lacing never lets up.

The smell brings to mind dried fruits, vanilla oak and cola.

The taste is pretty close to heaven. Surprisingly comparable to The St. Bernardus 12's and Rochefort 10's of the world. Boulevard should be proud of this one.

If Boulevard is going to move in this direction, then The Smokestack series is a great start. The regular line of Boulevard brews is nothing to be ashamed of, but these SmokeStack beers seem to be pretty special
