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.

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!

MaartenRF10 (1959) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 Donker bier met dikke kraag. Stevig bier dat vol in de mond ligt en vol van smaak is. Overrijp fruit en port domineren de smaak.

kathouse (1940) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - MAR 22, 2014
On tap. Cloudy red with creamy tan foam. Lots of lacing. Aroma of peach, pear, and apple. Fruit flavors are sweet and pronounced. Alcohol is drying. Finish is not as sweet with a hint of apple.

Dark sided quad.Intense malt background, quite intense roast character, dried fruits, lovely candy, toffee, licorice, decent hop presence. Feels quite vinous with dry finish. Mostly sweet with decent bitterness. Lovely and highly enjoyable brew.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2015 Compra: www.cervezasespeciales.com Opinion: Buena cerveza aunque tampoco excepcional. Se nota cierto sabor como a regaliz en ella.

beer-yum (1890) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 26, 2015
Alluring plum pudding aroma in a rosewood pour. Surprisingly light for a Quad but expected tastes are all there (banana/nut). Perfect desert beer that leaves one walmed to finish.

330 mL bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Dark brown cola-like pour with a frothy khaki head. Aroma of chocolate, dark fruit, and candi sugar. Taste is of raisin and booze. Alcohol warmth is very noticeable. A nicely done quad.
