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.

Lukaduke (2923) - 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.

Mørk brun med høyt eggegult kremete skum. Lukter melkesjokolade, karamell, noe røyk og mørke frukter. Fyldig. Salt smak. Mot salmiakk lakris. Espresso og en fin fruktighet i bakgrunnen. Kjenner også belgisk gjær og noe stram alkohol mot slutten. Kort

tomer (2788) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JAN 29, 2014
At a tasting, many thanks MrHangover, almost no head, quite clear dark brown colour, aroma of dried cherries and apricots, caramel and light oxidised notes, fruity sour flavour with woody and sherry notes, a bit too light bodied. Quite old but still interesting.
