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.

inbirraveritas (1216) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 27, 2011
Deep dark brown brew with a big creamy pale brown head on its top. Intensive tart, dried fruity (raisins, plums) nose and aroma escorted by chocolate, hops and some alcohol in the background. It finishes warming and tart with citrusses, peppery alcohol, dark chocolate and spices, which leaves a long tart aftertaste behind. Easy drinkable, delicious one.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Poured into a tulip glass. Two and half fingers of head on a deep brown colored body. The aroma is a great blend of caramel, apple, pear and other bright fruits. The taste has a big dose of caramel malt sweetness, some fruit, black licorice and mild bitter finish. The texture is fairly smooth with moderate carbonation. Very well done..

On tap at The Fred. Pours dark brown with a small, beige head. The aroma is figs, molasses, cola, and black cherries. The flavor is very sweet, with a very little bitterness. The palate is medium to heavy, malty, sticky, and fairly carbonated. Overall, this is a delicious, well made beer, with a good flavor and nice mouthfeel.

danielyabu (1146) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - OCT 21, 2012
average frothy light brown head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick brown body. aroma: wood alcohol, mild coffee, dark bread, moderate malty. if: moderate sweet light bitter. ff: moderate sweet bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, light astringent moderate alcoholic finish. Dulçor alcoólico, com nuances amadeiradas e background lembrando frutas vermelhas, forte aquecimento alcoólico, não escondendo nada de seus 11%, espuma vaporiza após algum tempo, dando a bela impressão de um latte cremoso, amargor pungente de álcool dá um ligeiro toque salgado ao paladar, charmoso, o final ainda tem uma ligeira reviravolta, trazendo nuances adstringentes ao retrogosto, quase cítricas e acéticas, mas dominadas pelo teor alcoólico. Saborosa, mas a última característica me pareceu defeito em relação a outras grandes representantes do estilo, como a La Trappe Oak Quadrupel, que apresenta maior qualidade geral e gama de detalhes em relação à esta. 18,90. Com vencimento em 11/14, a crescente adstringência não deveria se destacar tanto como fator negativo, conseguindo até mesmo superar o teor alcoólico após o ganho de temperatura da cerveja. Sabor perde dois pontos do inicio ao final da degustação, devido ao ganho de adstringência.60 s
