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.

Very dark beer with a lively light colored head when poured from the 11.2 bottle. Aroma of sweet fresh fruits like cherry and plum, malt, caramel & slight chocolate / coffe. Taste is huge full of caramel, fresh bread, currents, figs, cocoa, coffe and reasted malt. Finished with a long lasting almost smokey sweetness.
