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.

Bottle. Wanted to try this one for a long time partly because of the pengest label. The date isnt genotched, but Im guessing this one is pretty fresh. Dark brown with a large pale beige head. Aroma: dark stewed and dried fruit, brioche dough, some chocolate, leather. Full bodied but not syrupy. Moderate carbonation. Alcohol there but well integrated. Not all that sweet but certainly rich. Some dough, but perhaps cleaner than expected from the aroma. Dried fruit - raisins macerated in brandy - , chocolate, very gently spicy bitterness. Pretty good, might mellow a bit over a year or two.

The waiter at Yard House suggested this one to me and I was treated to a hallmark of the quad genre. Dark brown almost black in the glass with a uniform head of creamy white foam. Rich aromas and flavors of raisin, toffee, caramel, sweet bread, and some cocoa and sweet bread.

Color marrn oscuro casi negro, opaco, con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor (buena retencin). Poca carbonatacin. Aroma dulzn, a fruta, caramelo y malta tostada. Sabor dulce, a caramelo, fruta (quiz higo) y malta tostada. Digo higo porque esta cerveza es muy (quiz demasiado) similar a la Rochefort 10. Indudablemente es buena cerveza y se disfruta mucho, pero ni llega al nivel de la clsica Rochefort ni supone nada que me vuele la cabeza.

La robe est noire mais si on observe une lumire par transparence en la vois dun rouge vif, la mousse est abondante et de couleur ivoire. Au nez on sent principalement la levure. En bouche cest l que tout explose, cette bire est une tuerie, crmeuse juste comme il faut, avec un got de caf froid mais surtout une amertume parfaite, subtile mais prsente. Chose surprenante, on ne sent quasiment pas lalcool (en bouche) malgr ses 11. Cette bire est une rfrence absolue.
