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.

Blade86 (811) - Wrocław, POLAND - NOV 27, 2013
black with ruby reflexes, small but long-lasting tanned foam; dark berries, floral, some chocolate or coffee; medium sweetness, lightly bitter, noticable alcohol; full body, thick feel, average carbonation, long dry finish; Overall: there are better quadruples (alcohol a little bit too noticable) but still, it’s a very good beer

Bomber. Reddish brown pour - rich looking. Aroma is dark fruit and dark chocolate. Just a bit of booze. All the elements are there, but not quite as standout as St. Bernardus or Rochefort.
