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.

inbirraveritas (1543) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 27, 2011
Deep dark brown brew with a big creamy pale brown head on its top. Intensive tart, dried fruity (raisins, plums) nose and aroma escorted by chocolate, hops and some alcohol in the background. It finishes warming and tart with citrusses, peppery alcohol, dark chocolate and spices, which leaves a long tart aftertaste behind. Easy drinkable, delicious one.

mrkipling (51) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2012
Lovely dark colour. Rich, pungent, slightly sweet aroma. Tastes of treacle, demerara sugar and spiced fruit. Leaves a pleasant bitter-sweet aftertaste on the palate. Definitely one to sip slowly; could only drink one in a sitting, but would happily keep a few of these around for when the mood takes me.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with a dense light tan head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavor are toffee, caramel, date, fig, cherry, and some earthy yeastiness. Fairly sweet, but finish is dryer. Flavors get more complex as it warms. Mouthfeel is thick and a bit chewy. Alcohol is there but very well integrated.

On Tap at the Bekeerde Suster, Amsterdam. Clear dark red beer, big cream coloured head. The head tastes of fruity sherbet! Rich complex beer. Dr Pepper and creamy malt kick off. Mild licorice spice. Caramel. A little fruit salad sweets towards the finish. Minerals. Carbonated bite in the finish. A really tasty lip smacking beer, hides the 11.0% really well. Lovely!
