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.

smith4498 (3575) - Miami, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Pours cola brown with big light tan head. Aromas of dark fruits and bread dough. Sweet caramel malt flavor with some raisins, dough and candy sugar. Taste is good initially but ends with a weird aftertaste, kind of medicinal. Medium body with lively carbonation.

drjay44 (3521) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2011
750 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, lasting beige head, with some lacing, over a clear reddish brown (SRM 20) body....nose is raisin, cherry, toffee/caramel, cola....taste is dried cherry, raisin, bit of allspice, finishing slightly astringent...mouth feel light, sticky, alcohol heat present, carbonation adds a pleasant spritz.This meets the style. It is not as rich as some, the alcohol is a bit too obvious, and complexity is on the light side. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

33 cl. bottle poured in to a trappist glass. Jet black with a fluffy tan head. Sweet aroma with malts, caramel, dark chocolate, plums, spices and herbal hops. Taste is sweet. Full body, surprisingly carbonated for the abv., not unpleasant. Finishes long lasting with caramel malts, chocolate, licorice, port dark dried fruits and a hint of alcohol. Good quadrupel.
