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.

Almost black pour with massive rocky head. Raisins and sweet juicy fruit aromas. Sweet, fruity caramel notes with some noble hops creeping in and a metalic twinge in the finish. Chewy and lightly carbonated.

Fles gedeeld door LiekevdV. Het is een erg donkere Quadrupel. Het heeft een gebrande smaak met een licht fruitige afdronk.

Sublime bire brune aux reflets rubis avec une belle mousse ivoire bulles trs fines. Nez extrmement surprenant avec un parfum de fleurs en toute premire intention : rose, illet, lavande, bergamote, verveine, jacinthe, granium voir chvrefeuille. Cest impressionnant et je nose pas imaginer la quantit desters aromatiques diffrents que doit possder cette bire ! Mis part pour la Kagua Japonaise, je nai pas senti ceci ailleurs. Derrire cette dbauche olfactive, du fruit avec la fraise des bois, la banane, le litchi, la mangue, la passion, la goyave. A peine ressent-on les armes de malts qui pourtant doivent bien tre quelque part ! Lalcool me semble tre bien puissant avec ses 11% abv tant donn quon le devine facilement. Passons la dgustation pour vraiment voir ce que cette bire a sous le capot. Premire gorg, premier bilan : lalcool colle une belle gifle, la levure est fine, bien droite, une petite amertume se dgage tandis quon sent enfin les malts et les houblons. La texture est lgrement sche, moins ronde que ce quoi on pourrait sattendre alors que la carbonatation est vive et intense pour une Quadrupel. La deuxime gorge nous dmontre que lalcool est lossature de cette bire et soutient toutes les flaveurs. On retrouve en arrire-bouche et rtro-olfaction des armes de prune, de mirabelle, de pomme et de poire. De petites notes acidules viennent nous titiller et donnent un caractre citronn/ptillant pas bgueule sur ce breuvage qui est relativement sucr. Le final va sorienter sur les bois et le cuir, la cire et la rsine, les herbes sches et le champ de bl au soleil. En soxydant et en chauffant un peu, on retrouve un peu plus de rondeur et les flaveurs de malts ainsi que du fruit. Cest bon, riche, plein de corps, long, tonnant, aromatique, floral, alcoolis... Une bire quon ne qualifiera pas de parfaite car la perfection nest pas de ce Monde (et on se ferait chier !), mais que faire mis part dcerner la meilleure des notes ? Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrve.

Bottled. 10cl sample. The aroma has caramel mostly. Clear, dark brown coloured beer with a medium sized off-white head. The taste is moderate sweet and has caramel, bit dried fruit. Medium-full bodied beer. Straight forward quad.

bonev (674) - POLAND - APR 7, 2017
Piwo lekko metne w kolorze jasno brazowym nalewa sie z olbrzymia czapa lekko zabarwionej sredniopecherzykowaej piany. Po dluzszym czasie zostawia ladny lacing na szkle. W aromacie drozdze, slody, sliwki i przyprawy. W smaku mamy zasadniczo to samo. Pelne i gladkie z minimalna goryczka i wysyceniem na srednim poziomie. Ma wszystko co powinien miec kazdy dobry Quadrupel.
