Pours dark brown with large gassy tan head. Aroma of a well liquored fruitcake. Taste is a three way battle between malt, dark fruit and alcohol. What make this beer so interesting is that this battle ends in a three-way tie.

Tap, 25 cl @ Brugs Bierfestival. Dark brown beer with a medium creamy beige head, perfectly tapped (!), nice lacing. Aroma is quite similar to the Straffe Hendrik Tripel: malty, with some hops and sweetness included, dark fruits are extra to the Quadrupel. The taste at first sight also: strong malty taste, light sweet beer, grassy finish of hops. But the further you drink, the more comes to the foreground: instead of malts you discover these are roasted malts, a caramel taste on the background, dark fruits are also coming to the foreground. The Quadrupel has the same specific taste as the Tripel (or you are fan who likes this taste or you aren’t), but has so much more to serve you. Excellent choice, this quadrupel! (btw: excellent beer for my 300th rating!)

Bottle. Poured into a trappist glass. A sugary malt scent upon pour. Almost no head. Surprisingly smooth and not as heavily bodied as I thought it might be. Slight cherry taste with a bit of chocolate. Warm as it hits the chest. Potent in the alcohol department. Definitely a sipping beer but enjoyable and very tasty.

Red-brown color. Foam vanished quickly. First sip brings a smile on my face. Warming and delicious. Slightly sweet and tastes of ripe plums and raisins.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 Pitch black with red glow and with a greyish head and nice carbonation. Reddish hints when held up to the light.
Chocolate citric breadiness with hints of fruits, white pepper and cardamom. Some wood and leather and a touch of metal.. A solid smell. Stout-like bitterness with a nice watery finish, Coffee bitterness. Hints of apples and pears. Nicely fizzy with metallic tones and liquorice. Delicious!

Dense dark liquid. Little dark head. Toffee, licorice, vanilla aroma, medium intensity. Strong, viscous body, alcohol is excellently masked. Finish is balanced, with a hint of coffee. Taste is intense licorice, dark fruits, sweet, very good balance.

I had something calling itself Straffe Hendrik last night, this is the only beer by that name that seems to fit the description. Deep, opaque brown, tastes of coffee, brown sugar, an a slight burnt taste. Very good.
