Straffe Hendrik Quadruple is a rich and intense dark Belgian ale. It is brewed with a subtle blend of specialty malts, which give the ale an extremely dark color and a chewy, malty complex character. The quadruple combines a clean dryness with a warm full bodied mouth feel and essences of fruit. Secondary fermentation in the bottle creates a living ale that can be aged and will have an evolution of taste profiles over time.

It is brewed by the last active brewery in the historical city of Bruges. The town archives first mention the brewery in 1546. Since 1856, the famous brewing family Maes-Vanneste has owned the brewery.

ferjho224 (131) - MEXICO - JUN 1, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2019 Dark brown colour, heavy head with good retention, nuts and alcohol aroma, full body, raisin flavour

radagast83 (10067) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2019 Bottle pour at Mussel Bar & Grill in Arlington VA. Poured a very dark brown color with a fluffy, brown head. Aroma was caramel, toffee, sweet dark fruits. Chocolate, light roast, warming alcohol. Really nice.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2019 Surprised how little aroma, served in brewery’s own glass. Dark amber, good head retention (poured with 2 fingers of head) with thick bubbles. We thick, chocolately taste , liquorice. Too sweet for my preference but it is a quadruple so is to be expected. For 11% it’s surprisingly short of body. Warming alcoholic presence on aftertaste. Mouthfeel: effervescence cuts through sweetness to balance it. Silky but I’d enjoy even thicker and more syrupy. A grown up beer.

ricardostercios (422) - Castelló de la Plana, SPAIN - MAY 28, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2019 Color negro con reflejos granates claros muy luminosos. Espuma beige claro, cremosa, de tres dedos de espesor y retención inmejorable. Aroma a maltas tostadas, vino dulce, alcohol, frutos negros, algo de caramelo, frutos rojos y barrica. Sabor a maltas tostadas, frutos negros, frutos secos, sobre todo castañas y nueces, barrica y algo de anís estrellado, final amargo y muy seco, alcohol que calienta el pecho al pasar. Textura casi oleosa. Carbonatación media alta. Muy, muy sabrosa, intensa y rica en matices. Como diría el referente, 'Un espectáculo.'

NobleTeam26 (519) - Kyiv, UKRAINE - MAY 22, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2019 Dark color, middle foam size. Good beer, aroma and taste fit into the style.

Jerre (4697) - Waregem, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2019 Meemaals geproefd laatst tijdens een quadrupel proeverij te Aalter Lichtjes wazig donker bruin met lichtrode schijn, royale stabielere beige schuimkraag. Aroma: zoetje, donker fruit, tikje kruidig, koriander, beetje anijs. Medium tot volle body. Smaak: klein zoetje, donker fruit, rozijnen, wat chocolade, gebrande mout, gist, bitter. Goed.

Flag08 (397) - - MAY 17, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2019 Bottle, 330 ml. Dark brown w/ teddish shade and a good two fingers light brown head. Surprisingly shy aromas for a Quad, mainly chocolate and sweet coffee with some brandyish tone. The palate is awesome, full and silky, almost perfrct balance, a bit whiskyish aftertaste. It's definitely not the best quad i've tasted, but it's an OK one for the money. It's like a 'let's get drunk' dessert.

TychoJames (2341) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2019
UPDATED: APR 24, 2019 Flaska Mörkbrun vätska. Doft av torkad frukt, melass och kryddor. Mustig och söt smak. Mörk sirap, torkad frukt, jordkällare och jäst. Lätt torr avslutning

jarvo (399) - Abingdon, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2019
UPDATED: APR 21, 2019 Pours clear mahogany with a tawny brown head that lasts throughout. Aroma of caramel and dark fruit. Tastes rich and complex, lots of plums, figs and dates, touch of warming alcohol. Very good.

anonymadde (3) - Härnösand, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: APR 18, 2019 Utseende: Djupt, ståtligt mahognyröd Doft: Väldigt mycket skumbanan kombinerat med stora mängder torkad frukt av diverse slag. Lite läderartad gräddkola (!?) kommer fram när den luftats ett litet tag. Smak: Vinös med beska som har en fri roll på offensiv blå. Lite torr eftersmak. Denna har enorm potential med några års lagring
