Prachtig bier. Je proeft duidelijk dat deze in wijnvaten heeft gerijpt. Toch is dit niet overheersend en blijft het bier. Mooie donkere kleur, goede schuimkraag, verfrissende ietwat zurige nasmaak.

Mooi donkerbruin bier met fijne mokkakleurige schuimkraag die goed aan het glas blijft plakken. Overweldigend aroma van whiskey, chocolade, caramel, toffee. Warme zachte smaak. Eik, cognac, toffee, chocolade. Een explosie van smaken in je mond. Heerlijke warmende afdronk, Irish coffee achtig. Hier zijn geen woorden voor. Subliem subliem subliem....

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.

Lore (2211) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 25, 2016
dark brown colour with ruby notes, medium sized creamy beige head; aroma of whisky barrel, molasses, vanilla, dried plum, some raisins, dried sour cherry, butterscotch, and some biscuits as well as hints of apple and brett; taste of dried plum and sour cherry, whisky notes, oak barrel, vanilla, syrupy notes, moderate roastedness, maybe some anise and biscuits; spicy alcoholic aftertaste; amazing quadrupel - would be perfect with a bit more ’body’, or a bit less alcohol - I feel a minimal imbalance of body and alcohol...

2013 Shared with three others, this beer is something special. The malt, dark fruit and alcohol aroma is amazing and the flavor doesn’t disappoint. The appearance is a nice dark brown with a tan head.

Bottle at Denis’. Dark reddish brown, thick fluffy head fades to a tight cap. Amazing rich nose, red fruits, raisins, leather, soft spice, chocolate, oak, red wine, hint of booze. Soft rich palate, red fruit, oak, savoury oak spice, spicy hops, raspberry, subtle tartness, dry woody linger, hint of booze, spicy hop finish. Soft velvety carbonation. Amazingly deep and complex, a better quad than Westvleteren 12. Incredible.

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.

Foam: nice stable very pale brown to yellow head. Colour: brown to reddish brown. Aroma: raisins, some malty roasted character, little smoky, honey, woody, vinous, chocolate, many fruits. Taste: caramel malt, dark fruits, blueberries, plums, dry raisins, wood with notes of alcohol, yeasts, some sweet and peppery spice, semi-dry to the finish with nice dry bitterness, vanilla and dark cherries, figs, dates, smooth barrel character on the palate, full and complex body and sure it is worth to try, great beer.
