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.

(Bottled) Drinking 11% Quadrupel beer at 1.45 in the afternoon is one of the perks of entrepreneurialism ; this is actually pretty swillable , with the booze being cool and satisfying. A rich caramel palate ,lots of complex tart fruit esters, both cherry and plum..brown candy sugar covered in silky butteriness. Some floral hops lurk under the dark flavours...

mmahut (1776) - 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.

Mortlach (1775) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 28, 2014
28/03/2014 La Tana (330ml bottle). Bruna, intensa, abbastanza limpida, schiuma bianco-sporca abbondante e persistente. Al naso iniziale, sgradevole nota metallica, che fortunatamente si attenua nel tempo fin quasi a sparire, quindi emergono note di zucchero di canna, frutta rossa (ciliegie), caramello e spezie. In bocca è discretamente complessa, rotonda, dolciastra all’attacco con un finale acidulo (frutta rossa, ciliegie, ribes) e leggermente amarognolo. Corpo pieno, carbonazione media. Bella birra di sostanza.

Bottle. Pours brown (like Coke), with a large, tan head. Aroma is toffee, fruit, yeast, malt, and brown sugar. Flavor is toffee, malt, dark fruit, and a little alcohol. A pleasant surprise.

GTAEgeek (1750) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2012
On tap at The Fred. Pours dark brown with a small, beige head. The aroma is figs, molasses, cola, and black cherries. The flavor is very sweet, with a very little bitterness. The palate is medium to heavy, malty, sticky, and fairly carbonated. Overall, this is a delicious, well made beer, with a good flavor and nice mouthfeel.
