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.

Dark brownish red pour with large fluffy tan head. Aroma of caramel, malt, dark fruit and alcohol. Taste of burnt sugar, caramel, fig and a definite alcohol warmth present. A little too boozy on the dry finish, good beer though.

mattphilips (802) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 27, 2012
Csak a jó sör, Budapest. Mély, sötét vörösesbarna színe van, tetején egy kevés, enyhén krémes bézs habbal. Illata nagyon finom és édeskés: aszalt gyümölcsök, csokoládé, likőr, illetve gyógyfüves komló és fűszerek. A magas alkoholtartalom ízében már jobban érződik, de az alkohol egészen illik az illatából ismert ízvilághoz, mely egy kis melengetés hatására egyre jobb és izgalmasabb lesz. Nem is túl testes érzetű és a szénsavassága is segít befogadni, mégis apró kortyokban javasolt fogyasztása. Remek belga, férfiak likőrje.

Coppery amber with a tan head. Sugary sweet aroma with light bready notes. Taste is grainy with light toasted malts. Somewhat harsh, but still sweet. Full bodied with close to high levels of co2.

ExpendableHero (766) - Florida, USA - APR 21, 2013
Ruddy brown/copper colored beer with a frothy, off-white head. Aromas of booze, something sweet, and dough. Tastes of candy sugar, earthy/leathery flavors, some prunes, and sweet dough. Some funky nutty flavors are mixed in as well. Very complex. Cloying sweetness on the finish complimented by a lasting alcohol burn. Strong stuff, definitely a sipper. I enjoyed it.
