Dark brown with just a hint of red and a thick off white head. Aroma is strong fruit, a little plum. Flavor is big plum, close to prune with a nice bit of spice underneath. A small bit of funk in the finish, but not unpleasant. Wife: 4.5

Dark brown. Aroma and flavour have a wild, funky sharpness. Complex, sweet malty tones with hints of dried fruits too.

Fles 2012 versie, gekocht via speciaalbierpakket.nl, uitgeschonken in Bush craquelé bokaal. Prachtig verpakt in een houten kistje. Eerst dacht ik dat de carbonatie erg aangetast was, omdat er wat bier gelekt was langs de kurk. Gelukkig is deze behoorlijk in orde, slechts een licht verlies van carbonatie. Diepe donkerbruine kleur met een rode gloed en een medium hoge beige schuimkraag, die zich terugtrekt. Aroma’s van karamel mout, rozijnen, vijgen, rood fruit, chocolade, eikenhout, vanille en notities van rode wijn, port, bierkelder en leer. Het smaakpallet is licht geoxideerd, en zeer complex, zacht zoet en gebalanceerd, met zoete tonen, van vanille en gedroogd fruit als rozijnen, dadels en vijgen, gecombineerd met meer aardse tonen van, cacao, eikenhout en zelfs wat leerachtige accenten. De afdronk is zacht licht droog, met een houtige vineuze finish, toch iets verlies van carbonatie, want is bij deze fles vrij zacht. De gewone Quadrupel van Straffe Hendrik is als erg goed, maar deze 4 jaar gerijpte Heritage is werkelijk fantastisch, complex met een perfecte rijping op eiken vaten. Prachtig bier uit Brugge, een quad die het geld zeker waard is, ook zeer geschikt om te laten rijpen. Ook hier weer een voorbeeld dat de klassieke Belgische brouwerijen uitstekend mee kunnen met de craftbeer en BA trends. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark body with a thick beige head. Malty aroma of dried fruit and burnt candy. Very nice taste rich of malty flavours like toffe, dried fruit and sweet bread but still with mellow creamy feel. Very nice nice and easy for a quadruple.

SinH4 (2095) - Garching, GERMANY - APR 16, 2016
Vintage 2013, thanks anstei. Brown color with big beige head. Aroma is fruity, raisins, plums, berries, chocolate, vanilla, definitely some oakiness there. Taste is bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, again a berry fruitiness, and plums and raisins. Quite vineous. Sweet warming finish. Medium carbonation. Sweet, but very good and greatly balanced. I like this much better than the regular Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel, which is too straightforwardly malty.

MrW (518) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2016
75cl bottle from 2013, shared with family. Aroma has soury fruits, vinous, madeira, port. Pours dark brown, no head, probably due to the bad glasses. Taste had Wood, wine, alcohol, aceton, acid. Long aftertaste, sweet, sourish, full bodied.

Foffern (1595) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 12, 2016
Bottle at home. 2013-edition. Has a deep hazy reddish brown colour with a small beige head. Complex aroma of dades, oak, spiced rum, liqueur, prunes, brown sugar, leather and licorice. The flavour follows up with dried fruit leather, oak, heather, brown sugar and liqueur. Has a soft and rich mouth feel, full-bodied and a light bitterness. A very complex and tastefull ale. The oak blends nice with the quad.

This was the 2014 version. It pours dark brown in color with ruby highlights. It has a light brown head. It has aromas of molasses, plums, raisins, cherry, bread, and alcohol. It has flavors of plums, raisins, bread, cherries on the sour side, some molasses and alcohol. There are also oak overtones. The finish is bitter and sour with alcohol warming.
