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.

Dark brown pour with medium sized off white head. Great first smell! Raisins and other dried fruits and sweet roasted malts and burnt sugar. Wow, fantastic flavors gather in my mouth. The plummy dried fruits which I am really fond of. Not overly sweet with a nice bitter linger. Caramel and coffee/chocolate. There?s some sour in it too. Medium to full body with not too high of a carbonation and somewhat dry finish. Way better then expected. Good Quad! !

black with ruby reflexes, small but long-lasting tanned foam; dark berries, floral, some chocolate or coffee; medium sweetness, lightly bitter, noticable alcohol; full body, thick feel, average carbonation, long dry finish; Overall: there are better quadruples (alcohol a little bit too noticable) but still, its a very good beer
