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.

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

Fritz123 (1195) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a deep reddish brown with haze. Small head lasted about 20 seconds. Serious aroma with powerful strong dark fruits, sweet candy sugars, thick molasses malts, spices, and belgian style yeasts. The taste was a blend of the aromas with the dark fruits, dark sweet candies, spices, Belgian yeasts and the malts all coming together. Not overly sweet or cloying. Thick, oily mouth is smooth and good. Finish is bold flavors. Very well done.

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.
