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.

GTAEgeek (1238) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2012
On tap at The Fred. Pours dark brown with a small, beige head. The aroma is figs, molasses, cola, and black cherries. The flavor is very sweet, with a very little bitterness. The palate is medium to heavy, malty, sticky, and fairly carbonated. Overall, this is a delicious, well made beer, with a good flavor and nice mouthfeel.

33 cl. bottle poured in to a trappist glass. Jet black with a fluffy tan head. Sweet aroma with malts, caramel, dark chocolate, plums, spices and herbal hops. Taste is sweet. Full body, surprisingly carbonated for the abv., not unpleasant. Finishes long lasting with caramel malts, chocolate, licorice, port dark dried fruits and a hint of alcohol. Good quadrupel.

Cuso (4700) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle from bierzwerg.de. Dark brown color with medium beige head. Sweet bubblegum in aroma with caramel, candied fruit. Taste, sticky sweetness with dates, toffee, molasses, candied fruits, alcohol (brandy?), nice light bitterness in sweet finish. Little bit too much on sweet side, but overall good.

Dorwart (2378) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Nice strong milk chocolate colored head of fine and dense bubbles. Rich malty aroma with some milk chocolate, sweet malts, raisins and plums. Color is a deep mahagony brown. Lively mouthfeel with more raisins, caramel malts and a feint hint of tart cherry. Light alcohol presence which is quite surprising for an 11% brew. Surprisingly dry finish with lingering sweet malts and alcohol warming. A pretty good brew.

Bottle. Brown red with a nice off-white head. Aroma of Candy and spice. Flavour has brown sugar, plums and spices. The alcohol is rampant. Sets your chest cavity alight. Very nice though.
