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.

Excellent special edition of the regular quadrupel. Sweet smell, initial taste of a fine wine followed by the tastes of the regular quadrupel. Excellent brew and one of the best i had so far.

maxwelldeux (4219) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Draught. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose has a lot of oak coming through with some notes of caramel and candied sugar and just a bit of the Belgian yeast. Taste is slightly sweet and woody, and drinks super smooth. Really a beer you should sip and enjoy.

barbillon (54) - Pesaro, ITALY - FEB 18, 2015
Bella scoperta!! Bottiglia del 2013. Aroma dato dalla fermentazione in botte di rovere molto gradevole. Al palato appare molto dolce (vaniglia, frutti rossi, caramello e zucchero). Bel equilibrio. Ottima

Bottle. Light hazy deep brown liquid with mahogany hue and medium light tan head. Aroma of red berries, vanilla, wood, toffee, light booze and dried fruit. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with notes of toffee, vanilla, oak and dried fruit. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty nice, balanced oak character.
