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.

Muzzleloader (35) - FINLAND - AUG 24, 2016
Bottle from Beergium. Pours in a tulip glass dark brown, maybe a bit reddish with tan head. Aroma is dark dried fruits, dark syrup and malt. Taste is sweet, bit spicy, peppery, just a tad of sourness. The high alcohol content, you can surely sense it, but itis not disturbing at all. Bitterness is moderate. Palate full and sugary combined with nice carbonation. Finish is long and moderately bitter.

susonagger (202) - spain, - AUG 20, 2016
Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel, lanzada en 2010, se puede describir como una cerveza rica, de intenso color oscuro y plena en sabor. Su aroma es especiado y eleganta, con notas levemente tostadas. Elaborada con una refinada mezcla de maltas especiales, esta cerveza obtiene un complejo carcter, que combina una delicada sequedad con notas de coriandro, frutos rojos, ans y castaas tostadas. El paladar finaliza con un leve jarabe. Gracias a la fermentacin en botella se logra una cerveza vvida, que conoce una evolucin en sabor a lo largo de varios aos
