Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours reddish brown with an attractive tan head and a toffee aroma. There is a very oaky sweet and sour molasses flavor with a dry finish.

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.

09-MAY-2015, bottle @home, my 50th birthday. Hazy dark amber with lasting tan head. Aroma is weak with cherry and bread. Taste is better with more Quad-notes. Sweet, cherry-wine-like. Touch of tartness. Nice.

Vells (925) - Riga, LATVIA - MAY 10, 2015
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.

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.
