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.

very strong and full taste that hints to stout but is still a quadrupel. The after taste stays long in the mouth, bitter but creamy. Surprising beer !

DalzAle (2030) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle. Clear dark brown pour, lasting rich dark head and an aroma of raisins, plums and noticeable alcohol. Flavor is nice rich plums, creamy dark malt, toffee and finished with some clover and alcohol. Pretty solid and worth the $4/bottle.

PapaVillum (928) - Valby, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2014
33 cl, flaske, 11,0 %, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 10. marts 2014. Mørkebrun ufiltreret Quadrupel med stor fint boblende moccafarvet skumtop på 4 cm tykkelse. En overraskende svag aroma for øl i denne klasse, men lidt duft af gær og lidt malt. Til gengæld en meget fyldig og rund smag med et ekstremt veltilpasset balance mellem sødme og bitterhed. Lang dyb eftersmag med god alkoholvarme. Smagen har sødme af brun farin, gætter jeg på, gær og masser af malt. Den store skumtop i starten fordrejer en til at tro, at der er overmåde meget kulsyre i øllet, men dette er ikke tilfældet. Indholdet er på middel niveau og virker alligevel meget passende til smagen. Virkelig velsmagende!

Dark brown quadruple with creamy off white head. Red fruits and above all roasty aromas: coffee and chocolate. In mouth it is quite bitter and salty (unbalanced). Vanilla and toffe flavor are perceived and a warm sensation because of the alcohol. The end is long dry and excessively bitter Filip

visionthing (5128) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 28, 2014
33cl bottle from La Maison Belge, Puerto de la Cruz. Pours dark brown with a tan head, Sweet, malty and caramelly with some fruity notes. A bit too sweet and caramelly for my taste, but certainly a decent brew. (2014-02-15 - Halden)
