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.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2011
8/20/11. 750mL bottle. Very dark brown pour, quite dark for the style, with red under the light and a small tan head that fades but laces quite a bit. Big burnt sugar aroma with plenty of roast, dark fruits, and a solid dose of alcohol. Sweet flavor with dark sugar, dark fruits, licorice, and plenty of alcohol. Rich, dark, and... not bad.
