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.

kustie (388) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 7, 2015
Bottle. Opaque black color that turns into dark red with a light. Light brown head. Aroma has plums, caramel, ripe fruits, licorice and coffee. Taste is first a bit sweet with some sour aspects but turns into quite dry and somewhat bitter long aftertaste. Flavors of caramel, licorice, coffee, port, plums, ripe fruits. Quite intense and interesting one.

benpickens (440) - Camarillo, California, USA - APR 4, 2015
Pours inky black with no head other than soapy bubbles; tobacco and dark chocolate on the nose; chalky and bitter on the tongue... tastes like the westie 12 I had where I accidentally poured the sediment into the glass, but this time, I don’t think I poured the sediment into the glass. too bitter and chalky by half

Ysok02 (342) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2015
Robe brune, mousse peu persistante. Nez sur le chocolat amer, la fourrure, les épices, touche de banane. Bouche à l’attaque ample, une matière moyenne, des amers marqués et une finale un peu abrupte. Bière bien faite mais loin de mes préférées.
