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.

Muggus69 (2023) - 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.

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.

Bif (1985) - 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

BeerBaboon (1941) - FINLAND - DEC 25, 2011
Ulkonäöltään olut on tumman ruskea ja punertava. Paksua, hieman ruskehtavaa vaahtoa muodostuu runsaasti.Tuoksussa on karamellia ja tummia hedelmiä. Hieman turhan makea olut. Maussa myös karamellia, rusinoita ja hedelmäisyyttä. Suutuntumaltaan melko runsas ja keskihapokas.
