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.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 Donkerbruin, tegen het zwart aan, bier met rijke romige crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Heerlijk vol aroma. Je ruikt drop, caramel, rozijnen. Heerlijk intense, beetje rokerige, smaak met een bittertje, bier met een stevig karakter. Smaken van mout, gebrande koffie, peperkoek, kruiden. Heel uitgebreid smakenpallet, er gebeurt heel veel in de mond. En dan die afdronk !! Dit bier proef je door en door !! Meesterwerkje dit !!

RienT (3) - - MAR 13, 2014 does not count
very strong and full taste that hints to stout but is still a quadrupel. The after taste stays long in the mouth, bitter but creamy. Surprising beer !

DalzAle (1944) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle. Clear dark brown pour, lasting rich dark head and an aroma of raisins, plums and noticeable alcohol. Flavor is nice rich plums, creamy dark malt, toffee and finished with some clover and alcohol. Pretty solid and worth the $4/bottle.
