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.

Superbe réussite encore une fois. Belle couleur foncée, bière maltée à souhaits, arômes d’alcool de fruits, quelques notes grillées et épicées. Les 11% sont par contre très violents.

Tap. Pours a dark red-brown with a large resilient off-white head taste is of roasted malts, caramel, sugar, dark fruits, spices and a bit of yeast. Sweet with some hoppiness in the finish. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bbbeer (586) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Deep dark brown with overly large and unwelcome head. Aroma is malty, yeasty, sugary. Full body without much noticeable alcohol. Flavor is complex, brown sugar/malt, dark fruit, bread, dry but not overly so finish that is almost a little tannic. Very nice.

mutz (563) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2012
Heel donker met een goede kraag die behoorlijk aanwezig blijft. Ruikt moutig en ook fruitig. Complexe smaak, er flitst van alles voorbij . Goede fruitig lichtbittere nasmaak. Medium body. Niet te koud drinken. Erg lekker bier.
