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. Wanted to try this one for a long time partly because of the pengest label. The date isn’t genotched, but I’m guessing this one is pretty fresh. Dark brown with a large pale beige head. Aroma: dark stewed and dried fruit, brioche dough, some chocolate, leather. Full bodied but not syrupy. Moderate carbonation. Alcohol there but well integrated. Not all that sweet but certainly rich. Some dough, but perhaps cleaner than expected from the aroma. Dried fruit - raisins macerated in brandy - , chocolate, very gently spicy bitterness. Pretty good, might mellow a bit over a year or two.

The waiter at Yard House suggested this one to me and I was treated to a hallmark of the quad genre. Dark brown almost black in the glass with a uniform head of creamy white foam. Rich aromas and flavors of raisin, toffee, caramel, sweet bread, and some cocoa and sweet bread.
