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.

Pours a dark brown-amber with light tan head. Aroma is a fix of fruit, spices, wheat and some yeast. Taste is similar to aroma but with stronger fruit and spices and a yeast/wheat aftertaste.

keenimeeni (21) - KINGSTON, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2013
Pouring dark brown with a dirty white head, the aromas of fruits and a hint of spice belie the rich and enveloping flavour. Clean, complex, dry and chewy, this beer celebrates the weight of its body with a long, fruity and caramel finish. An intense beer crafted for people to appreciate as such; wowsers and wannabe-beer-lovers steer clear.

Mpuntmuts (142) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2013
Dark brown pour with medium sized off white head. Great first smell! Raisins and other dried fruits and sweet roasted malts and burnt sugar. Wow, fantastic flavors gather in my mouth. The plummy dried fruits which I am really fond of. Not overly sweet with a nice bitter linger. Caramel and coffee/chocolate. There?s some sour in it too. Medium to full body with not too high of a carbonation and somewhat dry finish. Way better then expected. Good Quad! !
