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.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2012
Dark blond with a white medium head. Very weak aroma. Light fruity, hoppy with a some alcohol shining through. I am slightly disappointed. I had expected more after reading the ratings.

NordicV (1273) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2014
Mahognyfärgad öl med lätt beige skum. Doften är kryddig, jästig, fikon, torkad frukt och karamellsötma. Samma återkommer i smaken.

Ik drink normaal graag quadruple, maar dit was toch niet echt mijn smaak. Dan zijn er veel betere

mmahut (1263) - 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.

pentaz (1253) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy/murky amber-brown with a somewhat lacing and diminishing beige creamy big head. Aroma is bread, marzipan, raisin, nuts, caramel, bubblegum, hops, anise and brown sugar. Taste is moderate sweet and light+ bitter. Body is near full, texture is creamy, carbonation is high. Finishes balanced with lingering caramel and a alcoholic burn. More restrained than your typical quad.

prawlie (1216) - 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.
