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.

ShivanDragon (3006) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 bruin zwart na inschenken, mooie goede volle wit/bruine schuimkraag, die echter wel redelijk snel slinkt. maar niettenin, de eerste punten zijn al binnen.
Inmiddels ruikt de kamer al sterk naar het aroma van hout, koffie, chocolade, mout, caramel en fruit. Weer extra punten erbij.
smaak: en daar worden punten op verloren, jammer: medium zwaar bitter, gebrand mout(caramel) zeer hoppig, koriander. overriujp fruit volle body, volmoutig
afdronk redelijk bitter, droog.
totaan de aroma goed, daarna wordt het snel minder, helaas

Lowenbrau (2967) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 31, 2014
330ml bottle from 1420, León.
In short: a boozy belgian quad.
Pours hazy dark copper-amber with frothy tan head, good head retention, some lacing. Roasty, liquor, caramel, nuts aromas. Medium body, viscous texture, average carbonation. Taste is sweet, liquor notes, caramel, roasted flavours, spicy, all among a nice alcoholic load. Despite this is quite well balanced. Very enjoyable.

Flaske: Orange brun klar øl med en stor skumkrone. Meget karbonering. Fin duft af malt og en smule frugt. Smagen er frisk grundet den store karbon ering men stadig en stor maltsødme. Udmærket øl.

Lukaduke (2918) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Pours a deep umber dark mahogany color with a big frothy eggshell foam. On the nose there is a big dose of cola, caramel and a touch of boozy figs. The palate is rich chewy and full of balanced flavors that match the nose nicely. Solid quad !

cbfobes (2880) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Poured from bottle, pours a burnt amber with a red hue in the light and a thin head, the aroma is of candy sugar with dark fruit and plum, the flavor is of dark fruit on the front end with a little bit of alcohol burn in the finish, nothing out of this world but still enjoyable.
