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.

330 ml bottle. L B. BB D/13. From Belgium. Courtesy of Brandman.
Dark brown colour with a small greyish white head. Surprisingly sweet malty aroma with some tartness, alcohol and saltiness. The flavour is salty soy sauce, dark fruits, cola, malt, some sweetness, mild yeast and a bit of hops. Not very complex nor interesting. Some alcohol there too.

Surprenant, les aromes herbacées de poivre qui s’échappent du vers dès le départ. Avec l’ambiance tempérée, elle perd ces caractéristiques pour laisser plus de place au malt, fruits confits (mûres / canneberges) et épices de noel. Son apparence physique n’a rien d’extraordinaire, c’est bel et bien une brune belge. En bouche par contre, explosion de saveurs plus riche les unes qur les autres: un bouquet complexe et arômatique, fidèle aux impressions que son nez laisse présager. Effervecente d’abord, son corps velouté ressort avec la température grimpante du liquide à l’air ambiant. Délectable.
