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.

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.

Bona quadrupel, tot i que es nota molt l’alcohol. Recomanable predre-la poc a poc per descobrir diferents matissos. Buena quadrupel, aunque se nota mucho el alcohol. Recomendable tomarla despacio para descubrir diferentes matices.
