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.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 17, 2014
Deep mahogany brown with a creamy cream-coloured head. Aromas of fresh allspice, cinnamon, cloves, molasses and dried currants. The first taste is a violently puffy and exploded on the tongue before llowing sensations of orange peel and allspice again to come through. Maybe some crystalised ginger and apple strudel? Dry finishing. A tasty devil.

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.

DalzAle (2020) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle. Clear dark brown pour, lasting rich dark head and an aroma of raisins, plums and noticeable alcohol. Flavor is nice rich plums, creamy dark malt, toffee and finished with some clover and alcohol. Pretty solid and worth the $4/bottle.

rikstar (2016) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2016 0,33l fles @ hof van Medemblik, mooi diepbruine ebbenhout kleur. Met dik romig schuim, dat redelijk blijft staan. In de geur gebrande mout, bruine suiker en gist. Smaak is vol met een minimaal bittertje in de afdronk. Mooi vol boeket aan rijp fruitsmaken. Doet denken aan kersen en pruimen. Wel erg alcoholisch

Muggus69 (2000) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 23, 2014
330mL bottle BB 26-11-2016 Lively deep brown body, holds a nice creamy beige head, leaving clumpy lace. Rich sugary aroma; treacley, molasses, dates & prunes. rum & raisin, some earthy phenolics. Thick, viscous body, lifted creamy carbonation, serious length, smooth warming finish. Particularly earthy on the body. There’s notes of dark brown/cooked sugars, but not particularly sweet, quite savoury, a slight bit tannic & dry with dark fruits & wood spice. Booze is not shy. Tasty stuff, just a touch rough around the edges.
