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.

Mooi donkerbruin bier. Aroma’s van mout, gedroogd fruit en wat caramel. De smaak is mooi zacht zoet-bitter, met tonen van mout, gedroogd fruit, caramel en wat chocola. Een lekkere licht bittere hoppige afdronk, maken dit een mooie complexe quadrupel. Heerlijk!

What nice beer. The beer pours a nice layer of almond colored soft foam. The beer has a beautiful dark ruby red color. I expected a lighter colored beer, however I really love it. The smell is delicious. I smell dark red fruits, cherry, oak wood, roasted almonds and a warming alcohol smell. What a rich smell, a perfect beer for an autumn night. The taste is very good. There is a strong alcohol taste, very warming. I also taste some oak, cherry and almond. The taste is very rich. Just what you expect from a Belgian specialty.

On tap. Coca cola brown with some ruby. Doughy sweet aroma, brown sugar, plum, almond. Direct nutty malts, caramel, crumble cake. Dangerously drinkable. Alcohol is nowhere to be sensed. Sweet wine mixed with a chocolate cake mixed with a very nutty malty brown ale. I like it even if it’s less massive than other well known quads.

33cl bottle in de Halve Maan. Pours very dark brown with a solid beige head. Malty toffee aroma. Full-bodied malt and toffee flavour with a solid mouthfeel. Very good.

Flaska från Beergium. Eventuellt 1-2 år gammal? Mörk rubinröd/djuot mahognybrun med två fingrar högt krämbeiget, gräddigt skum. Rejält med torkad frukt, toffee, inlagda körsbär, kandisocker. Alkoholen märkbar redan i doften. Stor, tung och ganska matt kropp (borde inte vara superfärsk). Relativt len. En del spritighet smakmässigt. I övrigt kandisocker, toffee och nästan lite kaffe. Något större beska.

Fine brown large head deep black. nice warm nose with filter coffee, chocolate and a bit orange, fullbody and fine length, quite soft and lingering around the mouth. taste is lightly bitter chocolate, caramel and a light mix of fruits like apricot, peach. Really pleasant.

markducommun (1116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Dark brown with some reddishness. Sweet berry notes, some roasted nuttiness. Touch of bitterness, predominantly sweet. Sort of raisiny back of the mouth roundness. Mid heavy body, sort of oily. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy dark tea color with some floaties and an off white head with little lacing.
