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 @Bruges. Dark brown coloured beer with high carbonation and a huge but diminishing tan head. Slight sweet dark fruit aroma, hints of burned sugar and alcohol. Medium body with a sweet malt, slightly roasted flavor. Finish is quite sweety dry.

Beautiful uneven white head on an almost dark beer. Aroma of bread and molasses, beautiful sticky palate and again that wheat bread and molasses flavor. Beautiful beer.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 Donker bier met dikke kraag. Stevig bier dat vol in de mond ligt en vol van smaak is. Overrijp fruit en port domineren de smaak.

Ulkonäöltään olut on tumman ruskea ja punertava. Paksua, hieman ruskehtavaa vaahtoa muodostuu runsaasti.Tuoksussa on karamellia ja tummia hedelmiä. Hieman turhan makea olut. Maussa myös karamellia, rusinoita ja hedelmäisyyttä. Suutuntumaltaan melko runsas ja keskihapokas.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - FEB 19, 2012
(750 ml bottle from Bootleggers) Dark brown with reddish-amber highlights. Pale biscuit head that is well-retained. Aroma of dark fruit and chocolate. Mouthfeel soft, smooth and full. Beautiful, well-retained sheets of lacing. Flavor of dark fruit, chocolate and luscious caramel. Not a trace of ABV. Elegant, big and outstanding.

Draft. Poured dark reddish brown with a huge head. Aroma of dark malts and cherry, maybe some other dark fruits as well. Taste adds a bit of chocolate. Light airy palate is unique and enjoyable but based on that and the head I do wonder if it was intended to be that way. All in all very nice and surprisingly drinkable for a quad.
