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.

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - APR 30, 2012
(bottle, 33cl) Slightly hazy, dark and reddish amber colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Sweet and slightly sugary toast-malty aroma with present notes of dark berries. Sweet flavour with a present level of roasty bitterness in the background, full bodied with a modest carbonation. Moderately roasted malty taste with berry-fruits, a delicately spicy touch, as well as a whiff of chocolate; sweet and slightly roasty bitter finish with noticeable alcoholic notes. Likeable. 03.IV.12

Huubs (142) - NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2012
Kleur van kersenhout met een licht getinte kop. Geur heeft wat fruitigs maar is niet erg sterk. Smaak heeft - als veel quads - wat weg van overrijp fruit. Proef rozijnen, banaan, abrikoos, bruine basterdsuiker en hop. Drinkt ondanks de sterke smaak lekker weg. De alcohol is niet overweldigend aanwezig, maar zit er zeker in en is in de afdronk voelbaar. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TET (1910) - FINLAND - APR 27, 2012
A dark brown beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma is cooked fruity, bananas, some dark fruits, raisins and hint of alcohol. Taste is malty, fruits, raisins, warming alcohol and herbal hoppyness. Full bodied, still quite easy to drink. Strong beer that is nicely balanced, there are nothing very special but still tastefull.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with a dense light tan head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavor are toffee, caramel, date, fig, cherry, and some earthy yeastiness. Fairly sweet, but finish is dryer. Flavors get more complex as it warms. Mouthfeel is thick and a bit chewy. Alcohol is there but very well integrated.

b79turner (239) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 10, 2012
Bottle poured into a tulip glass, pours a dark brown almost black with a large fluffy white head. Nose is tough to describe...almost sweet citrus...caramel maltiness. Taste is similar with a slight bitter finish. Medium carbonation. Almost no alcohol burn. Great beer!
