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.

Bamsen78 (5200) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown with airy light tan head. Sweet, clear aroma of malt, caramel, fruit, and chocolate. Ditto flavour, with touches of coffee. Bitter, boozy notes. Sweetish finish. Nice. Really nice. I just love Quadrupel :-)

MiP (15394) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle, 11%. Good caramelly aroma, creamy with a distinct alcohol note. Almost clear dark brown colour. Small frothy off-white head. The flavour is sweet and alcoholic. Has a little tobacco and salt. Fruity notes in the finish. Warming alcohol, but not boozy at all.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 Bottle from Beers of Europe. Mid to dark brown, reasonably translucent. A fair bit of carbs and khaki head. Full aroma of molasses and plum pudding. The taste is sweet but manages to stay rounded. Theres a full alcoholic kick as well. Very warming on a horrid January night.

Malty aroma with slight fruitiness like raisons. Poured light from bottle with barely any head. Clear coffee brown with edges of gold. Fantastic malty quad flavor. Light on the palate. Strong alcohol with sweet lasting after taste. This is a worthwhile Belgian quad. I will gladly drink this again!

Bona quadrupel, tot i que es nota molt lalcohol. Recomanable predre-la poc a poc per descobrir diferents matissos. Buena quadrupel, aunque se nota mucho el alcohol. Recomendable tomarla despacio para descubrir diferentes matices.

Pepinis (98) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 9, 2014
Estamos ante una cerveza compleja pero bien equilibrada, de color oscuro y reflejos rub intensos, buena formacin de espuma y alta estabilidad. Lo primero de todo es que tengo que decir que en el sabor presentaba notas de oxidacin pero nada lo suficientemente intenso como para que arruinase una cerveza que en su conjunto me ha parecido muy completa. En aroma destaca la malta que nos recuerda a frutas oscuras y muy maduras como las uvas pasas y los dtiles y el lpulo hace acto de presencia pero no destaca mucho y se mantiene en un segundo plano. En boca las caractersiticas son muy similares aunque se potencian y aparece las notas alcohlicas aunque muy bien integradas, esto tambin ayuda a potenciar la sensacin de amargor. Su cuerpo es denso y su carbonatacin justa. En el retrogusto deja una sensacin de leve dulzor residual y el alcohol ayuda a templar el paladar. (Botella, 330 ml)

Vestergaard (1999) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. The pour is clear, dark reddish brown with a big, tan head. Aroma has lots of dark dried fruits like plums, dates and figs. Also banana, toffee and a mild roast is present. Taste has a little licorice, but is carried by the same sweet fruits and caramel notes. Despite that, the licorice and freshness from the fruits are balancing it out quite nicely. Full body and medium to low carb. Pretty good, and maybe even underrated quad(compared to others) imo.
