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.

Bottle to snifter. Pours a deep, dark amber with thin, carmel head. Not much head retention. Aroma of sweet, roasted mild malt with suttle sour fruit and booze. Taste is roasty malt, light fruit, scotch booze, then a coca finish. Very little booze, not overpowering, malts are very well balanced. Awesome quad

kbudd19 (805) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
750 ml corked bottle, best before October 2016. Apperance is muddy brown, witha thick layer of creamy head that is built to last. Aroma is nutmeg, rasins, brown sugar, and sweet bread. Taste is a light bitterness up front, followed by nutmeg, clove, caramel, and rasin, finishes with some malty biscuit sweetnees and a touch of bitterness. Velvety mouthfeel, lots of carbonation, very little hint of booze. Overall, this a nicely balanced and complex quad, a very nice sipper on a cold winter night.

bytemesis (3978) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 24, 2015
A well aged (2011) bottle thanks to MrH! pours clear reddish chestnut, medium fizzy beige head that mostly dissipates but leaves nice residual and lacing. Aroma is sherry, dried fruits, toffee, grape. Flavor is vinous, grapes, sherry, figs, dates, some spice. Light plus sweet, light bitter. Medium body, fairly high carbonation. Interesting how this has developed.

Aroma: chocolate, roasted notes, caramel, a little bit of alcohol, grape peel, a pinch of hop, black-currant. Taste is sweet with light to medium bitterness. Rich aftertaste with a black currant, cocoa, dill seeds, ethers, hops, spicy liqueur, liquorice. Overall this is a very pleasant rich and complex quad. Well balanced alcohol, sweeteness and bitterness.
