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.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 Donker bier met dikke kraag. Stevig bier dat vol in de mond ligt en vol van smaak is. Overrijp fruit en port domineren de smaak.

Shared a bottle for Thanksgiving. Really smooth sweet quad with no head or lacing but dangerous in that the alcohol level is hardly noted. plenty of dried fruits and wine notes/

33cl bottle. Dark brown colour with a good formation of tan head but quickly diminishes in a thin layer. Aroma has chocolate hints, slightly spiced, toasted malts and caramel. Flavour is bready, with brown sugar trace,s sweet and chocolate at the beginning. Dense on palate, the final is long and with candy sugar taste although also slightly bittery too. Carbonation is soft. Body is high. Texture is oily.

VsXsV (2323) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2012
33 cl bottle. Clear, dark brown liquid with small to medium off-white to tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, belgian yeast, sweet/dark malt, roasted malt, unrefined sugars and noble hops. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter and has notes of unrefined sugars, fruits and nice, noble hops. Medium bodied with good carbonation. More hopped than most quads which makes it very balanced. Nice.

bbbeer (592) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Deep dark brown with overly large and unwelcome head. Aroma is malty, yeasty, sugary. Full body without much noticeable alcohol. Flavor is complex, brown sugar/malt, dark fruit, bread, dry but not overly so finish that is almost a little tannic. Very nice.

libertine (214) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2012
pours very dark copper color with a nice light brown head.aroma is sweet and floral.very complex flavours going on,raisins,caramel,malt,hops and a slight grapefruit undertone to it.nicely carbonated with a fizzy dry finish.overall this is very nice.for a quadrupel i was expecting something more sweet with a heavy presence of alchohol.more hopped than i was expecting and for 11 percent the alchohol doesnt stand out but complements all the other flavours.wasnt what i was expecting and im glad i tried this one

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear ruddy brown color. The head was exuberant and tan with good retention. Dark fruits, clove, hay, alcohol, and a dash of brown sugar in the nose. Medium bodied and slightly sweet up front. Dry and earthy at the end with prickly carbonation and a warming alcohol effect.

mattphilips (802) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 27, 2012
Csak a jó sör, Budapest. Mély, sötét vörösesbarna színe van, tetején egy kevés, enyhén krémes bézs habbal. Illata nagyon finom és édeskés: aszalt gyümölcsök, csokoládé, likőr, illetve gyógyfüves komló és fűszerek. A magas alkoholtartalom ízében már jobban érződik, de az alkohol egészen illik az illatából ismert ízvilághoz, mely egy kis melengetés hatására egyre jobb és izgalmasabb lesz. Nem is túl testes érzetű és a szénsavassága is segít befogadni, mégis apró kortyokban javasolt fogyasztása. Remek belga, férfiak likőrje.
