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.

Draft. Poured dark reddish brown with a huge head. Aroma of dark malts and cherry, maybe some other dark fruits as well. Taste adds a bit of chocolate. Light airy palate is unique and enjoyable but based on that and the head I do wonder if it was intended to be that way. All in all very nice and surprisingly drinkable for a quad.

Plum, grapefruit with coffee, dark chocolate finish. Nice but more one-dimensional than e.g. Rochefort 10.
