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.

durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Bottle from Sam’s in Durham. Pours a pleasant caramel brown, a bit hazy. Beige/tan one-finger head. Nose of caramel, stewed fruits, some earth, Belgian sugars and yeast. Solid, if a little boozy. Better warmer and even with some oxidation.

Abijen (2571) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2013
Pours a beautiful black beer with a good white head. Smells like red wine and sweet. Pretty nice. Taste is quite nice. A bit licorice and chocolate. The palate is perfect with this one.

Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle @tasting, pours brown/red, light off white head. Little on the nose but you do get that traditional belgium spice. On the tongue, fruity, chocolate, banana bread, nice.

3.7
Mortlach (2510) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 28, 2014
28/03/2014 La Tana (330ml bottle). Bruna, intensa, abbastanza limpida, schiuma bianco-sporca abbondante e persistente. Al naso iniziale, sgradevole nota metallica, che fortunatamente si attenua nel tempo fin quasi a sparire, quindi emergono note di zucchero di canna, frutta rossa (ciliegie), caramello e spezie. In bocca è discretamente complessa, rotonda, dolciastra all’attacco con un finale acidulo (frutta rossa, ciliegie, ribes) e leggermente amarognolo. Corpo pieno, carbonazione media. Bella birra di sostanza.

tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 22, 2014
draft that poured a medium mahogany color with off white head that disappeared quickly. the aroma was of sweet malts thick and flavorful some red fruits. mild bitterness in the nose and mouth fell. the flavor was delicious. medium to heavy body full and rich with plenty of sweet malts. dark fruit mix and a nice mild alcohol burn on the end...excellent from start to finish.

Mahognyfärgad öl med lätt beige skum. Doften är kryddig, jästig, fikon, torkad frukt och karamellsötma. Samma återkommer i smaken.

Bottle. Brown red with a nice off-white head. Aroma of Candy and spice. Flavour has brown sugar, plums and spices. The alcohol is rampant. Sets your chest cavity alight. Very nice though.
