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...

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

poured out of the wine style bottle into a pint mug.

poured a bronzed reddish almost apple cider like color with a creamy three finger head.

smelled sweet and candylike,almost butterscotch,with a slight herby hoppiness.the high alcohol is completely masked.

tasted just like it smelled.warm ,sweet, and slightly spicey at first with slight bitter and alcohol punch at the end.

mouthfeel is medium bodied and super smooth.not too carbonated.slightly sticky. damn near perfection

if i could afford it i'd put away about four fifths of this magic elixer in a in a row.
