COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ozzatoadisback (618) - ITALY - JAN 24, 2024
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2024 Pours a quite clear brown, looks almost black in the glass with an off-white/greyish head that's very big for such high abv and also shows very good persistence and some lacing. Average intensity in the aroma: strong fruitiness, even per style with dark/dried fruits in a dominant position but also some citric hints (chinotto aka citrus myrtifolia, doesn't seem to have an english translation). On the background: brown sugar, biscuity and slightly caramelly malts, licorice. Quite complex but maybe a bit too much fruity oriented. There's more balance and very nice flavour definition in the taste. Notes as per aroma, maybe with a hint of spiciness. Alcohol is pretty well hidden, but there's a nice warming feel. A pretty sweet beer as obvious, but overall in very good balance, with chinotto notes bringing a bit of bitterness, nice attenuation and a relatively dry finish. Dense bodied, medium to high carbonation; feels very full/dense. Excellent strong dark ale.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2024 By curiosity i bought this beer in a Oostende supermarket because i like strong beer taste like in trippel and quadruppel and because i heard about it, and i was right this is a wonderful beer with a taste and a good mouthfeel. If you like strong beer this is your eldorado.

tennisjoel (2201) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2024
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2024 750 mL bottle picked up in the cities. Brown/red body with a thick khaki colored head. The nose is a little fruitier than some in this style, getting some cherry or even cranberry scents. Other notes are of brown sugar, fresh bread, light cinnamon, vanilla. Caramel is dominant in the flavor. Not quite as subtle or nuanced compared to my favorite (St. Bernardus). Still quite enjoyable overall. Good find!

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2023 Petite Bière de Noël (11°) au nom imprononçable ! C'est le genre de Bière assez dingue, il y a pas une graine de café dans la fermentation et pourtant ça à un goût de petit noir. Arome top top!

PilsnerDoctor32 (2736) - madrid, SPAIN - OCT 31, 2023
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2023 Botella 330ml Color marron oscuro, espuma beiger, fina, alta, resistente. Aroma malta tostada, caramelo, frutal, especias, nueces. Sabor parecido, dulzor domina con un toque de acidez y amargor

geoffroy (8) - - OCT 14, 2023 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2023 Bière noir avec une bonne tenue de mousse correct. Un goût sucré instantané et long qui rend la bière lourd à boire

4.1
GDTRFB (8848) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 12, 2023
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2023 Pours deep mahogany into snifter. Tan micro head with excellent retention recedes leaving trailing sheets. Dark caramel, fig, and prune aromas. Sharp and full with sweet molasses, prune and fig upfront turning to earthy pumpernickel in the dry lasting finish.

Sbreitman (76) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2023
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2023 I really like the dark brown color and great lacing. Malts give a nice mouthfeel and body. Has a dry finish that I think doesn’t match the type of beer it is.

ABUSEDGOAT (4141) - California, USA - JUN 19, 2023
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2023 Mahogany with a tan head. Lovely aroma of darker fruit, sugar, yeast. Full bodied, warming, delicious.
