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.

Mr_Pink_152 (1209) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
330ml bottle as a birthday present. Colour is very dark reddish brown, reddish tint, with a tan head. Aroma of dark caramel, and stewed fruit. Taste has dark fruits, chocolate, and surprisingly no alcohol!

prawlie (1205) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2012
33 cL portion at the Halve Maan brewery in Brugge. Black with a fair head, in bulb glass. Sweet, candied, with some bitterness. Smells sweet and a hint roasted. Tasty but a bit of sweet hiding the alcohol syndrome.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Draft. Chewy is right. Thick clear body. Light brown great lacing. I barely detect any yeast which surprises me. Lots of caramel from the malt to get the high %. Not bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mmahut (1182) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 3, 2014
Pours in dark amber almost black color body, with hints of ruby againts the light. The head is light tan, pretty big and long lasting. The aroma has caramel notes, probably from the candi sugar, hints of toast, dried plums. Taste is heavy on high alcohols, caramel sweetness with high earthy bitterness, hidden by the sweet balanced. Body is full, oily texture, low carbonation.

flatmatt (1176) - Northville, Michigan, USA - MAY 28, 2011
330 mL bottle. Pours deep red with an off-white head. Strong aroma, difficult to identify, somewhere in the neighborhood of soy, dark fruit, vegetal, and cocoa. Similar flavor, a combination of red grape, cocoa, some peanut and mild oxidation tones. It’s an interesting beer to be sure, not bad.
