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.

dfinney23 (2963) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Pours dark brown with only a thin wispy head, which doesnt seem right. Maybe a bad seal or it got shorted on the yeast? Fantastic caramel and plum aroma hits even before lifting the glass. Taste is similar with hints of roasted coffee. Feels a bit flat. Will definitely need to sample another bottle.

Poured from bottle, pours a burnt amber with a red hue in the light and a thin head, the aroma is of candy sugar with dark fruit and plum, the flavor is of dark fruit on the front end with a little bit of alcohol burn in the finish, nothing out of this world but still enjoyable.
