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.

illidurit (2458) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Bottle shared at the May Santa Cruz tasting. Pours a dark cola color with a poofy tan head. Aromas of yeasty brown bread, candi sugar, vanilla, alcohol. Flavors of dark and red fruits with coriander, fruitcake, raisin, vanilla, licorice, and booze. A bit too hot and perfumey on the palate at 11 percent.

0,33 l bottle, bought in Amsterdam.
Clear mahagony colored ale with a medium creamy tan head that melts down to a fine lacing one. Intensive herbal aroma with fruity alcohol, cherries, raisins, liqueric, herbs like thyme, cocoa and cinnamon, nutmeg. Oh my god, complex aroma - what about the flavor? Medium, easier bodied than expected. Herbal character with a caramel-toasted cocoa some coffee in the background, spicies. Integrated chaos in the flavor. Cherries and tobacco, earth and herbs, thyme again with some candy sugar. Herbal aftertaste. Very complex, fantastic!

Bottle in Santa Barbara shared w/ my Dad. Dark pour with a nice head, full-bodied with the expected dark fruits and brown sugar. Wrong beer for a hot summer’s day but that’s how my old man rolls. None of this artisan fruit berlinerweisse 3.7% wussy shit for him.

GTAEgeek (2425) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2012
On tap at The Fred. Pours dark brown with a small, beige head. The aroma is figs, molasses, cola, and black cherries. The flavor is very sweet, with a very little bitterness. The palate is medium to heavy, malty, sticky, and fairly carbonated. Overall, this is a delicious, well made beer, with a good flavor and nice mouthfeel.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2011
#1221 Dunkelbraunes Bier mit ordentlich Schaum dank viel CO2. Erstaunlich frischer Antrunk trotz des hohen Alkgehalts. Geschmacklich wie im Aroma hefig-säuerlich, leicht rezent, recht langweilig. Wärmend im Abgang durch den Alkohol. Gut trinkbar, aber insgesamt zu sehr Mainstream. Boring!
