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.

What nice beer. The beer pours a nice layer of almond colored soft foam. The beer has a beautiful dark ruby red color. I expected a lighter colored beer, however I really love it. The smell is delicious. I smell dark red fruits, cherry, oak wood, roasted almonds and a warming alcohol smell. What a rich smell, a perfect beer for an autumn night. The taste is very good. There is a strong alcohol taste, very warming. I also taste some oak, cherry and almond. The taste is very rich. Just what you expect from a Belgian specialty.

33cl bottle at home. Pours a dark brown colour with a nice beoge head. Aroma’s of dried fruits, caramel, coffee. Taste has a malty sweetness with notes of raisins, plums, caramel. Texture is a bit sticky with medium carbonation.

Roasted, caramel a bit of raisins, sweetish, despite of awareness of hops. Very decent smooth mouthfeel, kind a sticky, sugarish. Very well ballanced, I was kind a surprise, easy drinkable for 11 ABV brew

I had this while in Bruges recently . . . at Cambrinus. I would put this up there with Rochefort 10 which I’ve always liked better than Westvleteren XII and St Bernardus Abt 12. It does not give off the notion of being 11% as it is well masked. It is fruity and sort of earthy, reminding me of a strong dubbel.

R2k2 (450) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2015
A dark, non transparant beer with a firm, slightly brown layer of foam. It has a lot of alcohol in it’s aroma, together with the touch of licorice and caramel. A nice, bitter taste like dark chocolate. The aftertaste is quite bitter, and remains for a while. Een donker, ondoorzichtig bier met een stevige, lichtbruine kraag. In het aroma zit volop alcohol, tezamen met de hint van zoethout en karamel. Een goede, bittere smaak zoals die van donkere chocolade. De nasmaak is licht bitter en blijft even hangen.

This cloody brown beer smells belge yeast. The taste is close to light molasse and alcohol. This beer is enjoyable at any time and anywhere. Cheers!

A very finely crafted beer, truly a delight. For 11 percent you might think this beer to be too strong, and although you definatley get an initial whiskey-like taste, it is soon followed by a sweet, caramel finish.

330ml bottle at home. Very good Belgian quad, sweet flavors and very well-balanced.

dwyerpg (6076) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 28, 2015
This was really quite excellent. An even more pronounced flavor than the gulden draak 9000 I had just before this. Sweet but at the right level to hide the alcohol.

beer-yum (1656) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 26, 2015
Alluring plum pudding aroma in a rosewood pour. Surprisingly light for a Quad but expected tastes are all there (banana/nut). Perfect desert beer that leaves one walmed to finish.
