2013.03.28 - Straffe Hendrik Brugs Quadrupel - 750ml bottle in pint glass. Label marked 21-11-2014.
Aroma is candy sugar, plum and fig type fruit, some bready yeast. Sill, an atypical Belgian aroma in my experience.
Appearance: Pours around 18 on the SRM scale, a beautiful rich clear brown. Light tan head is quite active, almost.perfect in carbonation and size, sticky.
Taste: I agree with reviewer below "Subtle alcohol taste which brings a nice body to the beer. Then you can savour vanilla and caramel flavours and a little hint of a sweet and pleasant red fruit, perhaps raspberry". I donít know how to describe it, a really nice balance of sweet, tart, and alcohol warmth. Perhaps a bit heavy on alcohol burn, but itís an exceptional taste.
Palate: Mostly light despite being an 11% abv, moderately high carbonation.
A really nice beer, repeat purchase worthy for sure.
