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.

Hopmaestro (1384) - rebro, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2016
Lovely foam and with an aroma of fresh dades, raisins and caramel. Taste is slightly burnt brown sugar, sweet dried dark fruits and lovely sweet dark toffee. Im no true Belgian beer fanatic, but this one is a knocker. Slightly warming sensation from the alcohol, but no sharpness whatsoever.

Mrkt med et rdbrunt skjr. Hyt, beigt skum. Herlig. kompleks duft med mye banan sammen med marsipan, svisker, eik og vanilje. Smaken er tykk og kompleks med mye trket frukt. Merker ikke mye til alkoholen.

Bawelt (623) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAY 12, 2016
Une des premires bires que jai bues. Je la redcouvre et la trouve encore meilleure que dans mes souvenirs. Nez : de la levure, un fond caramel et des notes des pommes confites, un fond caf. Bouche trs ronde trs quilibre, du corps : la levure est moins prsente, on a plus de caramel, un peu de caf, un fond trs bourbon. Des petites notes dalcool parmi un effervescence pas si faible pour un titrage 11. Superbe quilibre, trs gourmande. Vraiment superbe.

Een echte Belgische quad, ik heb spannender gehad echter. Netjes gebrouwen maar voor mijn smaak redelijk zoet en wat vlak ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
