Straffe Hendrik Quadruple is a rich and intense dark Belgian ale. It is brewed with a subtle blend of specialty malts, which give the ale an extremely dark color and a chewy, malty complex character. The quadruple combines a clean dryness with a warm full bodied mouth feel and essences of fruit. Secondary fermentation in the bottle creates a living ale that can be aged and will have an evolution of taste profiles over time.

It is brewed by the last active brewery in the historical city of Bruges. The town archives first mention the brewery in 1546. Since 1856, the famous brewing family Maes-Vanneste has owned the brewery.

Fules (634) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 12, 2016
Hatalmas, tartós, bézs hab, szinte fekete szín. Pörkölt malátás, feketecsokis illat. Édes, feketecsokis, aszaltgyümölcsös, fűszeres ízvilág. Enyhe keserű, közepes szénsav, hatalmas test. Nagyon finom, bár egy picit émelygősen édes.

kidmartinek (4570) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Deep caramel color. Thick and sticky tan head. Lots of alcohol and caramel in the aroma. Taste is strong brown sugar, malt and a little metallic. Body warms a lot. Very full flavored. Slight chocolate finish.

nickd717 (4078) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Bottle at BEL. Dark reddish amber color with a lasting tan head. The aroma is nice, raisins, prunes, bananas, brown sugar. Flavor is similar, medium sweet, overripe fruits, but leaves a little to be desired. Smooth feel, slight heat but booze well hidden. Pretty good.

Hopmaestro (1194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2016
Lovely foam and with an aroma of fresh dades, raisins and caramel. Taste is slightly burnt brown sugar, sweet dried dark fruits and lovely sweet dark toffee. I’m no true Belgian beer fanatic, but this one is a knocker. Slightly warming sensation from the alcohol, but no sharpness whatsoever.

metalspice (605) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2016
Mřrkt med et rřdbrunt skjćr. Hřyt, beigt skum. Herlig. kompleks duft med mye banan sammen med marsipan, svisker, eik og vanilje. Smaken er tykk og kompleks med mye třrket frukt. Merker ikke mye til alkoholen.
