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.

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy intense yellow with a steady head. Aroma is deeply malt, clearly pasteurised. Body is quite light to medium for a quadruple. Taste is a bit of green hops, but also a light sour yoghurt pinch. A mediocre Belgian beer, 13 in a dozen. On the plus side, the alcohol warmth is well hidden.

Pepinis (98) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 9, 2014
Estamos ante una cerveza compleja pero bien equilibrada, de color oscuro y reflejos rub intensos, buena formacin de espuma y alta estabilidad. Lo primero de todo es que tengo que decir que en el sabor presentaba notas de oxidacin pero nada lo suficientemente intenso como para que arruinase una cerveza que en su conjunto me ha parecido muy completa. En aroma destaca la malta que nos recuerda a frutas oscuras y muy maduras como las uvas pasas y los dtiles y el lpulo hace acto de presencia pero no destaca mucho y se mantiene en un segundo plano. En boca las caractersiticas son muy similares aunque se potencian y aparece las notas alcohlicas aunque muy bien integradas, esto tambin ayuda a potenciar la sensacin de amargor. Su cuerpo es denso y su carbonatacin justa. En el retrogusto deja una sensacin de leve dulzor residual y el alcohol ayuda a templar el paladar. (Botella, 330 ml)

Oh why can't I rate a beer without comment??? This beer is definitely best taste very very cold which yields a pleasant caramel aroma and a rich full flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Deep red-brown with a large foamy tan head. Aroma is densely malty, honey, liquorice. Flavour is big and rich--sweet malts, chocolate, caramelised sugar, yeast. Warming. This is nice.

solidfunk (8574) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Very nice. Smokey basement musk with a faint hint of chocolate. Pours dark cloudy brown with ok head and lacing. Light sour finish and a little bitter. Full aroma with some light floral yeast and hints of dried fruits. Some caramel. Bottle from De Vinos.

TtV (441) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Dark brown, near black with a light brown head. Aroma has caramel and sweetness. Not too special. But then you taste it and you?re taken to a lovely world of caramel, warmness, chocolate, coffee(?) and lots more. Lots of Co2 too. But it?s all balanced. This beer is art.

MikeKeller (939) - Kemi, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle @ home. Bought from the brewery in 2012, enjoyed July 2014. Dark brown beer with a lacy head. Enjoyable quad. Obviously not as complex as R10 but a couple years aging has done good for the beer as its rounder and more enjoyable than fresh sample had in 2012.
