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.

thanatosti (1584) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2012
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra. Deep dark brown with a dense creamy beige head. Malty spicy caramel aroma with some red en black fruits. Tasting adds some coffee and roasted malts to it. Great full flavour, almost too sweet but just within the (my) boundaries. long aftertaste with some alcoholwarmth but the alcohol is very well concealed. Belgium has many great beers and this is certainly one of them,
