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.

Thanks Armando 629! Sötét mahagóni színe van, aminek a belseje szépen, vörösesen ragyog a ha fény elé tartjuk. Világosbarna, vékony és krémes habja van, ami egy vékony lepedőt végig hagy a sörünk tetején. Illata intenzíven gyógynövényes, erősen fűszeres, meggy likőrös, aszalt gyümölcsös, pörkölt malátás és kakaós. Ízében is kaotikusan váltogatják magukat ezek az aromák, sok fűszerrel, finom alkoholos meggyel, illatos gyógynövényekkel, fekete csokival és édes, pácolt pipadohánnyal. Minden egyes korty tartogat valami újabb meglepetést! Sűrű teste van és közepesen buborékos és a magas alkoholtartalmat is végig érezni benne. Utóíze igen gyógyfüves, likőrös és kissé száraz, igen hosszan tart. Fantasztikus esti itóka, jó könyv vagy egy kis álmodozás mellé. A fajta szerelmeseinek kötelező darab!

0,33 l bottle, bought in Amsterdam.
Clear mahagony colored ale with a medium creamy tan head that melts down to a fine lacing one. Intensive herbal aroma with fruity alcohol, cherries, raisins, liqueric, herbs like thyme, cocoa and cinnamon, nutmeg. Oh my god, complex aroma - what about the flavor? Medium, easier bodied than expected. Herbal character with a caramel-toasted cocoa some coffee in the background, spicies. Integrated chaos in the flavor. Cherries and tobacco, earth and herbs, thyme again with some candy sugar. Herbal aftertaste. Very complex, fantastic!

12oz bottle, I’m usually not a quad fan, but this beer is the stuff. Complexity in this beer that is for sure. Fruits, citrus, caramel, pepper flavors, big 11%abv. Well-balanced, interesting good taste. Long finish, warming sensation. I would highly recommend.

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2011
Bottled at Pressklubben, Stockholm. Vinous nose with white pepper and cocoa. Mid sweet with slimmed body and rounded mouthfeel. Very vinous, fruity and rather intensely warming. Caramelly malt foundation with honey and clover. Warming finish with peppery alcohol. Like a fun mix of mead, unwooded chardonnay and chocolate sauce.

NederSaks (3) - Doetinchem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2011 does not count
33cl bottle. Drinking temperature:15˚C. Pours brownred with good head. Aroma full of prunes. Thin body for 11% ABV. Sweetish, sparkling, light chocolate. Alcohol well hidden. I love the label that delivers what it promises: an obscure, dark beer,strong in taste, heavy on alcohol. Good beer!

Bosskie (354) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 Pitch black with red glow and with a greyish head and nice carbonation. Reddish hints when held up to the light. Chocolate citric breadiness with hints of fruits, white pepper and cardamom. Some wood and leather and a touch of metal.. A solid smell. Stout-like bitterness with a nice watery finish, Coffee bitterness. Hints of apples and pears. Nicely fizzy with metallic tones and liquorice. Delicious!

Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a pillow tan head. Left a lot of floaters in the beer. Lots of lacing left behind as well. Aroma was dark fruit, figs and plums. Flavor was amazing. Fruits, apples, figs and molasses. Alcohol was a non factor. Long finish. Great, great beer.
