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.

jamesie1857 (2297) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle - a near black, near perfect beer. This was quality. Lots of liquorice, coffee, chocolate, fruit, malt... oh, so many. Very complex beer, well balanced with a boozy warm kick at the end. Need another now! Waiter!

Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 26, 2015
A heavy nose of banana, clove and spiced rum. Heavy and sweet with a burst of the candy sugar then a long, dry and herbal finish. It’s very fizzy. With a nice boozy complexity in the finish.

12oz bottle at Woodruff's. Pours a dark brown color with a lot of frothy head. Mildly sweet and lots of caramel.

adasko (2233) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 2, 2016
Nice and decent quadrupel but feels a bit too easy to drink. In taste caramel, toasted notes. Sweet and sticky. Good but cannot be compared to the big quad players.

Swaroga (2223) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 10, 2013
33cl bottle. Dark brown with medium to big head. NOSE : burned malts with dried fruits like raisins, figs, pineapple and mango. Fresh banana and licorice. SIP : smooth and creamy. Low to medium carbonation. The body is thick. The body texture is spot on. It marry well with sweet, burned and fruity flavors of this beer. Sweet chocolate tart with a hint of alcohol. Dark fruits and licorice give it a little sour and dry middle. Ending is deep and malty. Some spiciness in the finish. Alcohol is amazingly well hidden. OVERALL : a great brew ; well balanced, smooth body and the drinkability is quite surprising for the amount of alcohol it has. Well done.

Draft. Poured dark reddish brown with a huge head. Aroma of dark malts and cherry, maybe some other dark fruits as well. Taste adds a bit of chocolate. Light airy palate is unique and enjoyable but based on that and the head I do wonder if it was intended to be that way. All in all very nice and surprisingly drinkable for a quad.
