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.

Bottle - a near black, near perfect beer. This was quality. Lots of liquorice, coffee, chocolate, fruit, malt... oh, so many. Very complex beer, well balanced with a boozy warm kick at the end. Need another now! Waiter!

OminouSC2 (974) - Mora, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2018
Red/brown color, large brown head. Aromas of black tea, honey, spices and yeast. Sweet taste with brown sugar, yeast, alcohol, iron, dried fruit and slight tea.

Zilverenmaan (318) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2018
Poors dark red brown with medium, mocha head, oily, not to say syrupy... Taste medium: some dark fruits, more sour red fruits, caramel, nice taste of alcohol too, but distinctly sweet, somewhat sticky even. Alcohol wel hidden, considering. Mediocre, simply not in the same league as the likes of rochefort, westvleteren, st. Bernardus,... Forgettable: if Rochefort 10 is RAFC, this is Beerschot-Wilrijk...

NiklasT (145) - SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2018 Dark, dark ruby with a beige head. Clear. Aroma a bit week but taste is enourmos. Figs, dates, raisins and still not overwhelmingly sweet. Great balance with the typical Belgium yeastiness. A distinct bitterness at the end. Fantastic!

orbit (344) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2018
Fine abbey beer, surely comparable to the best Belgians that play the same game, it follows taste and aroma perfectly.

Zilb (407) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - JAN 8, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2018 1 an et 4 mois avant DLC. Brune foncée reflets rougeâtres à col de mousse magnifique à cratères et tenue de fou !!! carbo extrêmement importante. Arôme caramel, cacao léger et alcool. En bouche, caramel, et sucre candy avec final chaleureux. L'alcool n'apporte pas grand chose. Bonne bière sans être exceptionnel pour une quadruple.

hockey9930 (322) - - JAN 6, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 initially came out as all head. clear deep reddish brown with light tan head. malty aroma with prune, caramel and toffee. head is really frothy and long lasting. taste is boozy, with dark fruits and toffee.

LocalLiquids3 (10) - - JAN 4, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2018 Lekker complex biertje, met donkere smaken. Niet te zoet, en de bitterheid valt niet tegen. Dit biertje is puur genieten.

beersandbass (34) - Saint-Amand-Montrond, FRANCE - JAN 3, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 Une bière brune intense et riche en malt avec des saveurs de fruits noires et de malt torréfié. Gros coup de coeur, j'adore.
