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.

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.

tlind2 (1244) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle@Brussels, July 2012. Murky dark brown color, tan head. Hoppy aroma with a hint of alcohol. Warming flavor with hops, juicy malts, dark chocolate, lavender, vanilla and plum. Wow. Full body, high carbonation. Very nice.

flatmatt (1231) - Northville, Michigan, USA - MAY 28, 2011
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.

rikstar (1227) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2013
0,33l fles @ hof van Medemblik, mooi diepbruine ebbenhout kleur. Met dik romig schuim, dat redelijk blijft staan. In de geur gebrande mout, bruine suiker en gist. Smaak is voldoet met een minimaal bittertje in de afdronk. Mooi vol boeket aan rijp fruitsmaken. Doet denken aan kersen en pruimen.

spacecube (1220) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2013
From a 330 ml bottle, deep red pour with a small foamy head, decent carbonation, in the aroma cherries, berries, candy sugar, pistachio nuts, Finish is quite short it’s sweet in the mouth but the finish is smooth and well balanced. Hides the 11% abv well. Top quality.

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
