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.

vinivini (3009) - Gomel, BELARUS - FEB 5, 2017
Pours opaque brown with ruby highlights. Huge frothy beige head. Perfect retention. Big dried fruit aroma. Prune, raisin, dates. Very vinous. Slightly phenolic. Medium body. Velvety mouth feel. Brandy-filled chocolates, caramel malts, toffee, dried fruit, powerful warmth still no real alcoholic feel. Light bitterness is a mix of hops and spirits. All in all this is a model quad. Complex. Very good and no distinct point I guess.

MAGICuenca91 (82) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, SPAIN - FEB 25, 2017
Gran cerveza belga. Tomada en copa a partir de botella de 33 cl. Aroma muy intenso y agradable, aspecto oscuro con corona de espuma beige constante. Un sabor muy interesante que combina lo dulce con lo amargo (tiene notas de toffe) y un paladar similar.

emincems (119) - TURKEY - NOV 10, 2017
It pours very dark brown with frothy tan head. There are nice retention and lacing. Smell is saying this is a Belgian quad! Plum, caramel, toasted bready malt and and spices. Very complex taste of dark fruits, molasses, wood and peppery phenols. Sticky texture. Lively on the palate, very well carbonation. Warming and dry finish. Flawless quadrupel; delicious, mild and warmer.

Dark amber in color and hoppy in aroma and flavor. This was a very good Belgian, solid in every way.

Countbeer (6599) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2011
Draught @ OBM’11: Beige tan head on top of a darker colored beer. Smell flowers, sweets, malts, liquorice, some candy and barleys. Taste is a full mix of liquorice, spices, barleys, toasted malts, more bitter than sweet, herbs, hint of fruits and sweets, bit sticky. Low carbo, soft (light creamy) mouthfeel, full body and a sticky texture. Lovely beer!
