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.

Malty aroma with slight fruitiness like raisons. Poured light from bottle with barely any head. Clear coffee brown with edges of gold. Fantastic malty quad flavor. Light on the palate. Strong alcohol with sweet lasting after taste. This is a worthwhile Belgian quad. I will gladly drink this again!

Wow, packs a punch but doesn’t actually taste 11°. Great balance, sweet but dry enough to make it slip down very nicely. The best in bruge so far.

Plum, grapefruit with coffee, dark chocolate finish. Nice but more one-dimensional than e.g. Rochefort 10.

12 oz Draft. Pours heavy dark brown with thin head. Coffee and chocolate flavors wonderfully cover up the high alcohol content.

Bottle. Pours nice and dark with ruby highlights. Thick, creamy, lasting head. Smells of malt, caramel, toffee and plum. Flavor is sweet and malty with caramel. Im not up on the style, but I think its a very good quadruple.

Couleur chocolat, mousse tinté mais peu persistante, arôme malt, pain d'épice et alcool puissant ! Corps étrangement "léger" pour cette bière rassasiante et riche en bouche ! Saveur puissante de fruit rouge et surtout de zan... Un bon dessert alcoolisé ! --- Couleur chocolat, mousse tinté mais peu persistante, arôme malt, pain d'épice et alcool puissant !

Subtle alcohol taste which brings a nice body to the beer. Then you can savour vanilla and caramel flavours and a little hint of a sweet and pleasant red fruit, perhaps raspberry. They used to call beer "liquid bread", well I’d like to call this beer "liquid "foręt noire" cake". A gourmet and unctuous beer. Magnificent.

Que rica cońo!. Deliciosa Quadrupel Belga, muy a la altura de la Rochefort 10. Cerveza oscura y de fuerte paladar, corona bien marcada y sabor acaramelado con retrogusto intenso. Deliciosa!!!!

Very nice dark fruity flavors, grapes, Plums, raisins. Nice alcohol burn... very inviting, like a barrel aged quad. Tastes of vanilla, hints of chocolate, and toffee. Aroma is beautiful and pleasureful. Malt complexity of a well crafted Belgian brew. I love this beer and it only gets better with age.

Lekker stevig bier! Lijkt op Gulden draak qaudruppel! Warm moutig stevige alchol afdronk!
