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.

11.2 oz bottle. 2012 release, aged ~2 years. Pours brown, almost mahogany and translucent. Plenty of carbonation, decent lacing. Aroma improves as it warms, kind of muted when its cold. I agree with description regarding palate and tastes...palate is just a bit dry. I messed up and didnt taste this beer fresh, so its hard to compare 2 years old, but its great after aging! I really like this brewery, pretty much everything Ive had from them is awesome.

Jeg er desvrre ikke videre imponeret. Udseende og aroma lover en quadrupel og procenten lover ogs godt, men man bliver desvrre mdt af en omgang forvirring rent smagsmssigt. Svage frugt nuancer blandet med en mrkelig citrus, der efterlader n med en trls (!) fornemmelse af opvaskevand.. Og det er ikke videre godt!

jkwood04 (5379) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 8, 2014
11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of caramel and chocolate and some toffee from the malts, spicy Belgian yeast, hints of dark fruits, some sweetness, hints of nuts/grains, and a very light bitterness. Flavor the same, with a nice blend of everything for a Belgian quad. Smoother texture. Pretty good but not the best of its style.

Bottle. Very dark. Not as fruity as expected but more spice taste. A little drier than other quads I've tasted but still on sweet side. Overall very good quad. I would buy again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep dark brown color with beige head. Aroma of dried fruits, toffee, caramel and some hops. The taste has sweet notes, toast, and dried fruit with a soft alcoholic touch. Bitter finish with dark chocolate hints. Great Quad!

You can smell the alcohol with the caramel. The alcohol is a little bit unbalanced at the taste. Strong, full body.
