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.

Served cold at the brewery :( Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head that dies almost instantly. The nose is sweet with toffee and caramel notes, dried fruit aromas of prune and raisin about. A bit effervescent on the first sip with a first impression of a syrupy and rich brew. Rich malt profile with a bit of candy sugar and prune notes. Not overly robust but has a nice boozy accent. A good quad!

Lekkere quadrupel. Zachte smaak van caramel en zoethout. Schuim is snel verdwenen. Topbier!

maus (46) - Tartu, ESTONIA - DEC 10, 2014
Poured from bottle. Served cold, a bit too much maybe. Head dissipates fast, yet the bottle is overcarbonated. Hence, palate is a bit too bubbly on the tongue. Aroma is sweet raisins, malt and caramel. Taste is absolutely wonderful, mellow, malty and candylike. Just a touch too much fizz in my bottle unfortunately. A great quad in all means.

chromeotaphor (156) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2014
Suikerachtige aroma doet fris en licht fruitig aan. Prachtig om te zien mahony kleurig en een mooie crme kleurige volle wolkachtige schuimkraag. Krachtig bij binnenkomst met medium carbonatie, doet denken aan rum suiker en caramel en heel licht houtachtig, zonder al teveel diepgang (zacht).

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle at De Halve Maan brewery, Bruges. Poured a really deep mahogany colour, with a big, dense beige head. Massive aroma of prunes, dates, dark malt, black cherries and herbs. Very smooth mouthfeel. Toasted malt in the flavour, with fruitcake and dark rum. Finish was roasted malt, burnt sugar, treacle and slight earth.

330 mL bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Dark brown cola-like pour with a frothy khaki head. Aroma of chocolate, dark fruit, and candi sugar. Taste is of raisin and booze. Alcohol warmth is very noticeable. A nicely done quad.
