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.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2017 Acquired at Gerrard’s Market for $14.99, Straffe Hendrik Bruges Quadrupel Ale is a dark Belgian Ale brewed by De Halve Maan Brewery. The air gives off notes of molasses, chocolate, and dark fruit. Malts are rich to the body and brings some weight to the drink. Belgian yeast is felt upon the mouthfeel. An alcohol content of 11% is overwhelmed by the components and has a warming tone to the finish. Molasses is dominate and leaves a sugary feel at the back of your mouth. Toffee compliments the molasses and infuses with the chewy malt body. Chocolate is faint, but its flavor has a lasting impression on the aftertaste. Raisins offers its flavor as the beer wanes and sweetens the finish. Prunes accompanies the raisin taste. Plums compliments the chocolate and malt body. Cherries brings a slight tartness to the take and its taste strengthens in the finish. Clove has a lovely undertone to the mouthfeel. Anise spice blends with the sugary molasses. Straffe Hendrik Bruges Quadrupel Ale is an extraordinary complex beer. Molasses and chocolate intertwine together with a fine layer of toffee. Raisins, plums, and prunes sweeten the beer and brings depth to the body. Clove is subtle, but anise, sugary molasses, and Belgian yeast gives us a unique take. If you find this Belgian, don’t leave it on the shelf. This beer is incredibly delicious, easy to drink, and like a fine wine. Cheers. Prost. Drink for the love of beer.

Kronhjort1996 (90) - Århus C, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2017
Mørkerød, hazy og kæmpe fyldigt hoved. Den dufter af fermentering,, samt frugtessens. Den smager topfermenteret, med en kompleks maltet karakter. I munden har den er ren tørhed, sammen med en varm sødme. Den er fullbody ud over det sædvanlige. Den er livlig, nærmest levende, og vil ændre karakter og udbygge smagen med tiden. Den har en laang behagelig eftersmag.

Fantastisk levende øl, der nærmest er vinøs. Et levende billede på belgisk quadropel.

carlom (97) - ITALY - DEC 2, 2017
Colore nocciola scuro, schiuma compatta e persistente. Aromi di uvetta e canditi. All'assaggio caramello, frutta secca, malto tostato, prugna e leggere note di cioccolato. La carbanazione è evidente nei primi sorsi, finale leggermente secco. Una birra con un corpo pieno dalla consistenza quasi cremosa in cui i gradi alcolici comunque si fanno sentire

This beer is in fact in my humble opinion the best beer in Belgium hence the the World. it have very strong caramel and nutty smell, excellent companion for cheese eating after a good day of dog training and the alcohol level is very high so be careful or mindful if driving home,
