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.

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.

Bif (1710) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Pours a deep brown color with a large tan head that fades slowly to ample lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, fruit, bit of nut with just a hint of alcohol. The taste is of Roasted malt, fruit, some nut and trace of chocolate as it warms. Has a subtle bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body, smooth, almost velvety, clean with a richness throughout. As it warms it enhances to character. Great beer to end the day with, an easy sipper that is well worth checking out
