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.

danielyabu (1395) - Uniăo da Vitória, BRAZIL - OCT 21, 2012
average frothy light brown head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick brown body. aroma: wood alcohol, mild coffee, dark bread, moderate malty. if: moderate sweet light bitter. ff: moderate sweet bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, light astringent moderate alcoholic finish. Dulçor alcoólico, com nuances amadeiradas e background lembrando frutas vermelhas, forte aquecimento alcoólico, năo escondendo nada de seus 11%, espuma vaporiza após algum tempo, dando a bela impressăo de um latte cremoso, amargor pungente de álcool dá um ligeiro toque salgado ao paladar, charmoso, o final ainda tem uma ligeira reviravolta, trazendo nuances adstringentes ao retrogosto, quase cítricas e acéticas, mas dominadas pelo teor alcoólico. Saborosa, mas a última característica me pareceu defeito em relaçăo a outras grandes representantes do estilo, como a La Trappe Oak Quadrupel, que apresenta maior qualidade geral e gama de detalhes em relaçăo ŕ esta. 18,90. Com vencimento em 11/14, a crescente adstringęncia năo deveria se destacar tanto como fator negativo, conseguindo até mesmo superar o teor alcoólico após o ganho de temperatura da cerveja. Sabor perde dois pontos do inicio ao final da degustaçăo, devido ao ganho de adstringęncia.60 s

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with a dense light tan head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavor are toffee, caramel, date, fig, cherry, and some earthy yeastiness. Fairly sweet, but finish is dryer. Flavors get more complex as it warms. Mouthfeel is thick and a bit chewy. Alcohol is there but very well integrated.

Bottle at obx. Poured a dark ruby color with very generous head. Strong aroma that bursts with dark fruits like raisin, candy, belgium yeast, cherries. Medium light sweetness. Finishes slightly dry. Warming alcohol. Creamier palate. Very complex flavors. Getting dark fruit. Great belgium sipper.

Thanks Armando 629! Sötét mahagóni színe van, aminek a belseje szépen, vörösesen ragyog a ha fény elé tartjuk. Világosbarna, vékony és krémes habja van, ami egy vékony lepedőt végig hagy a sörünk tetején. Illata intenzíven gyógynövényes, erősen fűszeres, meggy likőrös, aszalt gyümölcsös, pörkölt malátás és kakaós. Ízében is kaotikusan váltogatják magukat ezek az aromák, sok fűszerrel, finom alkoholos meggyel, illatos gyógynövényekkel, fekete csokival és édes, pácolt pipadohánnyal. Minden egyes korty tartogat valami újabb meglepetést! Sűrű teste van és közepesen buborékos és a magas alkoholtartalmat is végig érezni benne. Utóíze igen gyógyfüves, likőrös és kissé száraz, igen hosszan tart. Fantasztikus esti itóka, jó könyv vagy egy kis álmodozás mellé. A fajta szerelmeseinek kötelező darab!

prawlie (1380) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2012
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.

Wonderfully tangy scent with hints of yeast, raisins, apples and fruit. The taste is the same with a soft tone and warming alcohol. One of the best Abt / Quadrupel I have ever tasted!
