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.

TET (2632) - Kaarina, FINLAND - APR 27, 2012
A dark brown beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma is cooked fruity, bananas, some dark fruits, raisins and hint of alcohol. Taste is malty, fruits, raisins, warming alcohol and herbal hoppyness. Full bodied, still quite easy to drink. Strong beer that is nicely balanced, there are nothing very special but still tastefull.

Dorwart (2535) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Nice strong milk chocolate colored head of fine and dense bubbles. Rich malty aroma with some milk chocolate, sweet malts, raisins and plums. Color is a deep mahagony brown. Lively mouthfeel with more raisins, caramel malts and a feint hint of tart cherry. Light alcohol presence which is quite surprising for an 11% brew. Surprisingly dry finish with lingering sweet malts and alcohol warming. A pretty good brew.
