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.

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.

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!

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!

33cl. Bottle. Poors dark ruby red, with tan head. Aroma dark fruits, caramel, sweet, malts. Taste fruity sweet, some alcohol, roasted, bitter. Mouth-feel creamy, thin. Complex quadrupel maybe not the best but really good.
