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.

glennmastrange (2779) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. Heavy bread, nutty and milk chocolate for the malt, moderate cooked orange for the hops, dough for the yeast, with raisin, dried cherry, wood, toffee, bourbon, with a hint of vinegar and a faint mix of baking spices. Head is small, frothy, light tan with thin slippery lacing and good legs, and is almost fully diminishing to a small ring. Color is clear burgandy. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and finishes moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium to full, syrupy with a flat to soft carbonation, and finishes lightly alcoholic. Though hugely complex its a very malty and sweet Quadrupel, its just that the sweetness isnt balanced by any acidity or enough bitterness.

Zlotta (2775) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2015
0,33 l bottle from drankgigant.nl, best before 28/11/2016. Clear, dark ruby with a medium large, foamy, very slowly diminishing, tan head. Pleasant, fruity aroma of cherries, blackcurrant, plums and port. Intense, sweetish-fruity aroma of cherries, blackcurrant, elderberries and plums, followed by a long, warming, alcoholic finish with little hops, like port and bourbon, but even a little metallic. Full body, oily and creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very good beer but a bit too harsh and thus not up to the styles leaders. I like the fruitiness, though.

jjsint (2749) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 Bottle from Beers of Europe. Mid to dark brown, reasonably translucent. A fair bit of carbs and khaki head. Full aroma of molasses and plum pudding. The taste is sweet but manages to stay rounded. Theres a full alcoholic kick as well. Very warming on a horrid January night.
