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.

pours very dark copper color with a nice light brown head.aroma is sweet and floral.very complex flavours going on,raisins,caramel,malt,hops and a slight grapefruit undertone to it.nicely carbonated with a fizzy dry finish.overall this is very nice.for a quadrupel i was expecting something more sweet with a heavy presence of alchohol.more hopped than i was expecting and for 11 percent the alchohol doesnt stand out but complements all the other flavours.wasnt what i was expecting and im glad i tried this one

Deep dark brown with overly large and unwelcome head. Aroma is malty, yeasty, sugary. Full body without much noticeable alcohol. Flavor is complex, brown sugar/malt, dark fruit, bread, dry but not overly so finish that is almost a little tannic. Very nice.

neur0 (909) - GERMANY - JAN 20, 2012
(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkle, rotbraune Farbe, ist leicht trüb und hat eine bräunliche Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sehr malzig, leicht fruchtig aber trotzdem schwer. Der Geschmack ist stark, leicht vollmundig und schwer. Er ist ein bisschen erdig, sehr grünmalzig, adstringierend und die Karbonisierung ist sehr stark. Ein bisschen Bittere bleibt im Nachgeschmack hängen, so wie ein bisschen vom Erdigen. Alles in allem ist es lecker, aber nicht mehr als eins am Stück.

Heel donker met een goede kraag die behoorlijk aanwezig blijft. Ruikt moutig en ook fruitig. Complexe smaak, er flitst van alles voorbij . Goede fruitig lichtbittere nasmaak. Medium body. Niet te koud drinken. Erg lekker bier.

VsXsV (2329) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2012
33 cl bottle. Clear, dark brown liquid with small to medium off-white to tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, belgian yeast, sweet/dark malt, roasted malt, unrefined sugars and noble hops. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter and has notes of unrefined sugars, fruits and nice, noble hops. Medium bodied with good carbonation. More hopped than most quads which makes it very balanced. Nice.
