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!

Ooof... this is a big, fat, intense beer. Loads of fruity esters... over ripe banana, bread, cloves... loads of alcohol... incredibly warming, my cheeks are glowing... sweet and rich. A sipper for sure, but delicious.

Fantastic Quadrupel, esters in abundance, creamy mouthfeel, sweetish, but balanced, low carbonation. Perfect.

Jolie robe marron foncé avec des reflets de rouge carmin! Belle mousse ivoire ,crémeuse et persistante.Le nez nous offre des arômes de prunes , café et épices .L’acool prend sa place mais tout en douceur. Une bière très équilibrée nous laissant sur des notes très subtiles et légères avec une petite pointe d’amertume malgré sa grande richesse. Grande élégance pour cette Quadruple!!!!!!!

Dégustée dans un verre Straffe Hendrik. Magnifique robe brun sombre opaque surmontée d’une mousse persistante beige à grosses bulles. Le nez très harmonieux est sur la prune et le chocolat. Le goût est un modèle d’équilibre et ajoute des notes vineuses et de café. L’alcool(11%) s’intègre parfaitement dans l’ensemble et apporte une chaleur appréciable. La finale est longue et douce. Une bière peu complexe mais une délice absolu.

Tonaca di frate scuro, schiuma sottile beige. Al naso molto intenso l’odore di dark fruits, liquirizia. Al palato molto corposa, alcol in netta evidenza. Caramello, malto, ancora frutta secca e dark fruits, liquirizia. Carbonazione medio bassa. Molto buona.
