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.

From a 330 ml bottle, deep red pour with a small foamy head, decent carbonation, in the aroma cherries, berries, candy sugar, pistachio nuts, Finish is quite short it’s sweet in the mouth but the finish is smooth and well balanced. Hides the 11% abv well. Top quality.

Bottle 33 cl from Le Grain d’Orge - Neuchâtel (CH). Brown with huge foam, complex aromas of fruit and alcohol, chocolate and caramel. Liqueur-like mouth, roasted and chocolate malt, round and sweetened. There are spices, hints of vanilla, pepper, raisin, burnt sugar, confectioner’s shop, and plum-pear. Finish in silky, moderate bitterness and warmth of alcohol. Nice.

trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Tap at SIBF 2012. Pours a murky brown, with sweet dark fruits and baking spices predominant. Lovely, and the flavor follows. Hops on the back, but this is mostly sweet brown sugar and fruit -- similar to pannepot. Just great -- one of my new favorite quads!

thanatosti (1678) - 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,

Ik drink normaal graag quadruple, maar dit was toch niet echt mijn smaak. Dan zijn er veel betere
