The Sixth Glass Quadrupel ale
« on: February 02, 2014, 02:26:54 PM »
One of the best strong beers I've had. Ever. Not syrupy, alcoholic, overly sweet or ridiculously hopped. An amber hazy beer in perfect balance and harmony despite it being over 10% abv. The body is light and effervescent, the malt tones honeyed with notes of dark cocoa. Bitter without much aroma. Alcohol bitterness present but cloying alcoholic character is absent. Some phenols- hints of bandaid but not offensively so.


Been eying it for years but was afraid it would be a waste of my money.
