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.

Stor smag og en dyb smag af noget meget mørkt, næsten brændt karamel. Der er også undertoner af blommer.

Draft at Yardhouse in Seattle. This is a Belgian Quad on tap. Strong - alcohol present, sweet Belgian malts. Lots of dark fruit flavors - prunes, plums. The 3ozs in draft is best. In bottle sitting on a self wild make it better. Its exactly what its supposed to be... and I like it... but I would like it more mellowed in a bottle.

Holmen2 (3651) - NORWAY - NOV 28, 2015
Backlog. Bottel shared with JMD at HNB 11.05.13. Dark brown. Fantastically nice beige head. Aroma of hops and berries. First taste is of dark berries, then of refreshing hops. Aftertaste is of dark malt with hop bitterness that lingers on. Average carbonation. A suberb beer, and the best quadrupel I’ve tasted.

ZodiacM (1180) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2015
Mooi donkerbruin bier. Aroma’s van mout, gedroogd fruit en wat caramel. De smaak is mooi zacht zoet-bitter, met tonen van mout, gedroogd fruit, caramel en wat chocola. Een lekkere licht bittere hoppige afdronk, maken dit een mooie complexe quadrupel. Heerlijk!

vadie (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2015
Brune foncée avec une petite robe marron/tan. L’arôme est bordée de levures belges fruités (fruits noirs). C’est un peu terreux avec un peu d’alcool. Une bonne arôme pour un quad. En bouche c’est très complexe, avec du malt, fruits, un peu d’houblon florale, du caramel, et quelque chose terreux. C’est un peu sucré mais la finition est assez sec.
