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.

TEJA (3257) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2017
Long lasting fluffy dark beige head. Clear orange brown color. Big bread aroma. with a slight metallic touch and a complex roasted maltiness. Stromng alcohole and a medium body that don’t respond to the alcohol. Roasted and malty taste but lacks a bit of caramell.

Beese (3210) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle at De Halve Maan brewery, Bruges. Poured a really deep mahogany colour, with a big, dense beige head. Massive aroma of prunes, dates, dark malt, black cherries and herbs. Very smooth mouthfeel. Toasted malt in the flavour, with fruitcake and dark rum. Finish was roasted malt, burnt sugar, treacle and slight earth.

bottleforager (3208) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Pours a deep umber dark mahogany color with a big frothy eggshell foam. On the nose there is a big dose of cola, caramel and a touch of boozy figs. The palate is rich chewy and full of balanced flavors that match the nose nicely. Solid quad !

TET (3208) - Kaarina, FINLAND - APR 27, 2012
A dark brown beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma is cooked fruity, bananas, some dark fruits, raisins and hint of alcohol. Taste is malty, fruits, raisins, warming alcohol and herbal hoppyness. Full bodied, still quite easy to drink. Strong beer that is nicely balanced, there are nothing very special but still tastefull.

tgncc (3145) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2011
At Get real NY. The aroma is a nice combination of fruit and bread. The appearance is deeep brown, light tan head. The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma. Fruity and bready to be sure, but a taste of meetal as well. The finish was actually a little dry, and the booze is felt. Medium/thick in body. This beer is all over the map. Solid aroma, ok in taste, decent body, weird finish. Good overall.

3.8
keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Very malty heavy aroma, quite sweet with a lot of fruit. The flavor follows with a nice warming and a peppery feel. Well balanced with a long lasting after taste.
