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.

Lore (1308) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 24, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 Tartós hab, sürü sör, melyről már a kiöntésekor érződik az extrém alkoholfok, ami az ízét is dominálja, édeskéssé teszi. Majdnem maximum, bár ebben kicsit benne van a hely varázsa is (a helyszínen, Brugge-ben, a sörfőzdében kóstolva).

Pours a cloudy dark brown with a white bubbly head. Aroma is grapes and currant. Taste is bubbly with a deep sweetness followed by a sparkling bitterness and a mellow alcohol burn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gEUS (1302) - Linden, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy intense yellow with a steady head. Aroma is deeply malt, clearly pasteurised. Body is quite light to medium for a quadruple. Taste is a bit of green hops, but also a light sour yoghurt pinch. A mediocre Belgian beer, 13 in a dozen. On the plus side, the alcohol warmth is well hidden.

rand (1299) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle 33 cl from Le Grain d’Orge - Neuchâtel (CH). Brown with huge foam, complex aromas of fruit and alcohol, chocolate and caramel. Liqueur-like mouth, roasted and chocolate malt, round and sweetened. There are spices, hints of vanilla, pepper, raisin, burnt sugar, confectioner’s shop, and plum-pear. Finish in silky, moderate bitterness and warmth of alcohol. Nice.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a pillow tan head. Left a lot of floaters in the beer. Lots of lacing left behind as well. Aroma was dark fruit, figs and plums. Flavor was amazing. Fruits, apples, figs and molasses. Alcohol was a non factor. Long finish. Great, great beer.

inbirraveritas (1285) - 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.
