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.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a very dark brown to opaque with a small off-white head and an aroma of overripe fruits, dried plums, raisins, toffee, chocolate, moccha, syrup, figs and maple syrup. The taste is medium to heavy sweet with some alcoholic notes, a fizzy carbonation and some slight hoppy bitterness in the fisish. Very nice!

Korcz (3389) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 7, 2017
Bogate, złożone piwo. Karmelki, anyż, masa ciemnych owoców, słodko-kwaskowate, alko grzeje w przełyk. Wrzucam kilka na leżak, jest super.

4.2
vinivini (2535) - Gomel, BELARUS - FEB 5, 2017
Pours opaque brown with ruby highlights. Huge frothy beige head. Perfect retention. Big dried fruit aroma. Prune, raisin, dates. Very vinous. Slightly phenolic. Medium body. Velvety mouth feel. Brandy-filled chocolates, caramel malts, toffee, dried fruit, powerful warmth still no real alcoholic feel. Light bitterness is a mix of hops and spirits. All in all this is a model quad. Complex. Very good and no distinct point I guess.
