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.

One of the handful of much-desired beers I was able to return with from Amsterdam, Straffe Hendrik Quad was high on the list. Classy label. Lifting off the cap on the 330 ml bottle and tilting into my Trappistes Rochefort glass I note a rich, dark body. The head is a slender beige small-bubbled foam steadily refilled by some active carbonation. The scent is cherry, hard candy and a bit of bread. A sip delivers malt, caramel, dark plum and toasted bread. Quite good, just not the best quadrupel I have tasted.

à la maison. Belle bière brune bien alcoolisée. Robe opaque , elle surprend par son côté puissant et sec , relativement peu fruitée. Bonne bière d'apéro.

A meal on it's own, although nice with a sharp cheese. I'd love to keep some around long enough to let it age, but somehow the bottles just don't ever manage to stay on the shelf. It's nice on tap at the brewery as well!

FinnIckler (899) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 4, 2017
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Pours dark brown. Nose is chocolate, leather, orange, some alcohol. Palate is sweet orange, chocolate, toffee finish. I really like this, on the other hand, this is the sixth Quadrupel/Belgian strong Ale I am rating in a row... So I might not be 100% objective.

750 from Legacy. Dark brown, thin head. On the nose, rich fruits, figs, robust whole grain bread. Sweet palate with similar fruit depth, nice alcoholic warmth. Great fruity notes.
