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.

Moravius (691) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2014
Frische Flasche (33 cl) von Belgianbeerz.com. - Rötliches Kastanienbraun, enorme Schaumentwicklung. - In der Nase typische obergärig-esterige Fruchtigkeit, brauner Zucker und eine leicht weinige Note (Portwein). - Antrunk schwer dunkelmalzig, mit leicht sirupähnlicher aber noch gut eingebundener Malzsüße und Noten von reifen Pflaumen, Kirsche und Karamel, dazu ein Hauch von Weihnachtsgewürzen. Mild rezent, vollmundig, samtig im Mund. Im Abgang geschickt abgerundet durch nicht besonders kräftige aber deutliche krautig-holzige Hopfenherbe. - Sehr angenehmes Quad, wenngleich keine geschmackliche Offenbarung. Hätte durch längere Lagerung wahrscheinlich gewonnen.
