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.

Vestergaard (1545) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. The pour is clear, dark reddish brown with a big, tan head. Aroma has lots of dark dried fruits like plums, dates and figs. Also banana, toffee and a mild roast is present. Taste has a little licorice, but is carried by the same sweet fruits and caramel notes. Despite that, the licorice and freshness from the fruits are balancing it out quite nicely. Full body and medium to low carb. Pretty good, and maybe even underrated quad(compared to others) imo.

Fritz123 (1535) - 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.
