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.

Holmen2 (3634) - NORWAY - NOV 28, 2015
Backlog. Bottel shared with JMD at HNB 11.05.13. Dark brown. Fantastically nice beige head. Aroma of hops and berries. First taste is of dark berries, then of refreshing hops. Aftertaste is of dark malt with hop bitterness that lingers on. Average carbonation. A suberb beer, and the best quadrupel I’ve tasted.

750 ml bottle. As an aside, I love the label, especially the moon. Pours a clear deep mahogany with a large tan head that remains substantial to the end of the glass and leaves a sudsy coating on the glass with each sip. Pleasant aroma of caramel and dates. The flavor is caramel, malt and dates. Fairly smooth and well-rounded on the palate. Overall, a very nice beer.

Bottle. Poured a clear ruddy brown color. The head was exuberant and tan with good retention. Dark fruits, clove, hay, alcohol, and a dash of brown sugar in the nose. Medium bodied and slightly sweet up front. Dry and earthy at the end with prickly carbonation and a warming alcohol effect.

tomer (3515) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JAN 29, 2014
At a tasting, many thanks MrHangover, almost no head, quite clear dark brown colour, aroma of dried cherries and apricots, caramel and light oxidised notes, fruity sour flavour with woody and sherry notes, a bit too light bodied. Quite old but still interesting.
