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.

Cristobal37 (1093) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 20, 2017
On tap. Coca cola brown with some ruby. Doughy sweet aroma, brown sugar, plum, almond. Direct nutty malts, caramel, crumble cake. Dangerously drinkable. Alcohol is nowhere to be sensed. Sweet wine mixed with a chocolate cake mixed with a very nutty malty brown ale. I like it even if its less massive than other well known quads.

Bottled 330ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb. Brownish coloured, medium sized creamy beige head, dried fruits and spices in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, dried fruits and spices with notes of alcohol. Again spices in the finish. Very good brew but something is missing to be a great one.

dinkle50 (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Brown, slightly cloudy pour with barely any head. Aroma is fruity, apricots, grapes and raisins. Light bodied and dry. Bubblegum like finish. Taste is fruity, a bit one note though. Barely any carbonation in the bottle. Im not crazy about this, which makes me think there could be something wrong with this bottle. Would try again...for science.
