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.

A meal on it's own, although nice with a sharp cheese. I'd love to keep some around long enough to let it age, but somehow the bottles just don't ever manage to stay on the shelf. It's nice on tap at the brewery as well!

Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Pours dark brown. Nose is chocolate, leather, orange, some alcohol. Palate is sweet orange, chocolate, toffee finish. I really like this, on the other hand, this is the sixth Quadrupel/Belgian strong Ale I am rating in a row... So I might not be 100% objective.

Color marrón oscuro, casi negro, con capa de espuma marrón claro de tres dedos de grosor (apariencia de jabón y buena retención). Carbonatación excesiva. Textura oleosa y efervescente. Aroma a caramelo, fruta madura, especias, alcohol, flores (me recuerda bastante a las cervezas belgas de invierno). Entrada dulce en boca, caramelo y fruta madura, lúpulo presente a mitad del trago. Floral. Seca. Astringencia, amargor y alcohol al final del trago.

Draft at Dario’s Brasserie. Pours Coca-Cola brown with a thick khaki head. Leaves a shitload of lacing in the glass. Lots of dark fruit and caramel malt on the nose and tongue. Has a bit of sweetness on the tongue but nothing too cloying. Finished clean. Hides it’s booze very well. This stuff is drinking way too quickly.
