COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

33cl bottle. Pours dark reddish brown with a thick creamy light beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, dark fruits, some banana. Taste is very similar, very well balanced and not too sweet. Some spices and light final bitterness with ground coffee notes. 11% ABV very well hidden and only noticeable as the beer warms up. Good quadruple but the competition in its style is very hard.
