4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the best beers I have ever had. Bought from Browerij De Halve Maan in Brugge. SHH has very strong aroma with some wooden notes. Color is very dark brown and it looks cloudy. Comparing with Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel, less bitter, medium body and much more delicious.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Outstanding brew! "Dark sided quad. Intense malt background, quite intense roast character, dried fruits, lovely candy, toffee, licorice, decent hop presence. Feels quite vinous with dry finish.
Mostly sweet with decent bitterness. Lovely and highly enjoyable brew." And this is boosted by awesome oaky characteristics giving indept addition of aroma dimension - wild dark choco, figs, dried fruits.
Top class brew!

I can’t help it, but in my opinion this is a decent addition to the normal Straffe Hendrik beers. One to drink again next time I’ll in Bruges or something.
