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 (3243) - 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.

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

Countbeer (6589) - 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!

rand (1920) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle 33 cl from Le Grain d’Orge - Neuchâtel (CH). Brown with huge foam, complex aromas of fruit and alcohol, chocolate and caramel. Liqueur-like mouth, roasted and chocolate malt, round and sweetened. There are spices, hints of vanilla, pepper, raisin, burnt sugar, confectioner’s shop, and plum-pear. Finish in silky, moderate bitterness and warmth of alcohol. Nice.
