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.

emartell (269) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - NOV 19, 2012
Aroma intenso, complejo, elegante, completo. Destacan notas a maltas tostadas, caramelo, frutas y algo de madera. En cuanto al aspecto, color obscuro con ligeros destellos rubí a contra luz. Cuerpo medio, carbonatación de ligera a media. Corona de espuma muy abundante y esponjosa al momento de servir, de mediana retención quedando finalmente una capa de espuma hasta el último trago, a pesar de no ser tan amplia como lo es al momento de servirla. En boca destacan los sabores vinosos, ligeramente maltas tostadas y notas dulces en virtud de su refermentación en botella. Al paladar se nota en primera instancia un agradable escozor en lengua proveniente de su carbonatación. Posteriormente sus notas vinosas y potencia alcohólica sorprenden, notandose rápidamente un aumento en el calor corporal. Su dulce final y excelente equilibrio dejan sensaciones placenteras al beber esta genial cerveza. Como final podemos seńalar que se ha bebido una excelente cerveza estilo Quadrupel. Sabores y aromas complejos, bouquet genial, y un final completo y elegante. su potencia alchólica es evidente ya que hablamos de una cerveza de 11%. Definitivamente sabosa y única.

Temptation (252) - - FEB 4, 2014
Potent, overwhelming beer, deep and complex, that has a wide profile combining notes to almonds, cake, milk chocolate, prunes and red wine with some bitterness which is close to spiciness. The overall is robust, well rounded and finished, with a spicy hint in the finish. The cons: the texture could be smoother and not so watery and the red wine notes are too marked. Nothingless, a very good beer, to repeat.

McSherman (251) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 15, 2015
Die Farbe erinnert an Cola. Dunkelbraun rötlich klar mit hellbraunem unregelmäßigem Schaum. Geruch: Süß, getrocknete Pflaumen, karamellisierter Zucker. Geschmack: überraschend wenig süß, dafür überraschend bitter. Aromen von Erwachsenenlakritz und Kaffee sowie Röstmalz. Das Bier verspricht sehr viel in der Nase, kann das dann im Geschmack nicht ganz halten. Dennoch gutes Bier!

bdunhill (251) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2012
This quadruple is full of flavor with a nutty and bitter aroma to its dark brown complexion with a big white frothy head. It tastes full of flavor with hints of coffee and a palate that lingers on and on!

Excalibur123 (244) - Soria, SPAIN - DEC 28, 2013
Color ámbar muy oscuro, media cabeza de espuma beige que desaparece rápidamente; aromas marcados a malta tostada, caramelo, frutos negros y brandy; en boca entrada maltosa y licorosa con notas a especias y alcohol bien integrado aunque sus 11ş se acaban notando; cerveza con buen cuerpo amargor muy sutil y trago corto; pos gusto demasiado seco lo que la desvalora un poco.
