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.

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.

bth122 (1546) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle at obx. Poured a dark ruby color with very generous head. Strong aroma that bursts with dark fruits like raisin, candy, belgium yeast, cherries. Medium light sweetness. Finishes slightly dry. Warming alcohol. Creamier palate. Very complex flavors. Getting dark fruit. Great belgium sipper.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a deep reddish brown with haze. Small head lasted about 20 seconds. Serious aroma with powerful strong dark fruits, sweet candy sugars, thick molasses malts, spices, and belgian style yeasts. The taste was a blend of the aromas with the dark fruits, dark sweet candies, spices, Belgian yeasts and the malts all coming together. Not overly sweet or cloying. Thick, oily mouth is smooth and good. Finish is bold flavors. Very well done.

flatmatt (1532) - Northville, Michigan, USA - MAY 28, 2011
330 mL bottle. Pours deep red with an off-white head. Strong aroma, difficult to identify, somewhere in the neighborhood of soy, dark fruit, vegetal, and cocoa. Similar flavor, a combination of red grape, cocoa, some peanut and mild oxidation tones. Its an interesting beer to be sure, not bad.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Ive been sitting on this one since my pre-RB days. Okay, thats not so long. Looks incredible - Deep tar pit brown with a big tan head that has no business on a beer this strong. So much lace I can barely read the Chimay logo on the opposite side of the chalice. Smells like old currants, dates and sweet baking spices. Yeasty bittersweet malt flavor that is only a letdown relative to the aroma. Very thick texture but smooth and easy drinking. Finish that dries out slowly. Highly recommended.

jflopsu (1527) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Pours a dark brown-amber with light tan head. Aroma is a fix of fruit, spices, wheat and some yeast. Taste is similar to aroma but with stronger fruit and spices and a yeast/wheat aftertaste.

Manslow (1521) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Butelka 0,33l kolor ciemny, piana średnia ale ładnie oblepia szkło. Piwo mocne, aromatyczne owoce i karmel. Smak słodki przechodzący w alkohol, mocne, owoce i karmel. Spodziewałem się więcej.

Pretty classic version of the style. Lots of layers of dark fruit flavors, bit of alcohol in the finish.
