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.

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.

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.

2011 bottle. Deep dark nutty ruby with a thin off beige head. Sweet and delightfully peppery nose with a dose of spruce or something herbal on top of dark sweet malt tones. Nice lovely flavor of dark sticky malts with a gentle roasty blackness with a side of herbal spruce and pepper and a wee bit of sweet roast. Lovely.

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!
