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.

Bottle brought back from a trip from Bruges. Rich ruby colour witha lasting frothy cream head. Peppery stewed fruit aroma. The flavour has lots of peppery spice with sweet stewed fruits, raisin, toffee and clove. Nice.

Panzerfaust (849) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 3, 2017
330ml bottle from Beer Square. Pours a slightly reddish brown color with a big beige creamy head that lasts long and leaves a nice film. Aroma is intensely fruity and malty with a mixture of raisins, plums, prunes, fig marmalade, molasses, candy sugar and diverging notes of apple, apple pie, cake and bread crust. Taste is intensely sweet and fruity, complex with nuanced flavors, and very well complimented by a boozy kick. Touches of wood and fruitcake can be felt as well. Perfectly rounded. Body is medium to big... a bit thinner than other Quads. Still, alcohol provides just enough presence, without overpowering. Carbonation is medium and the complexity is fairly high. Another nice Quad... probably my favorite style currently.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2017 Draft @ Max & Joe?s. Aroma is sweet and malty. Dark brown color, clear, reddish hue with a beige head that lingers. Nice lacing. Balanced sweetness, raisin, malty, clean. Full bodied, chewy mouthfeel. Overall, a terrific Quad. Does not taste as strong as it is!

Bottle @ Le Milady’s. Robe noire, arômes de caramel et de réglisse. L’alcool est présent mais ne perturbe pas l’équilibre.

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2010
(Draught) Deep, dark ruby with a medium, creamy and lacy, beige head. Sweetish and dark-fruity nose with anise-clove spiciness. Flavor is anise-coriander-spicy with sweetish maltiness and brown sugar, and roasted malt in the finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Quite full-bodied, sticky and lightly syrupy palate with medium carbonation. The house flavor (that I’m not a fan of) is definitely there, but there is so much else going on, that it is not disturbing. A quite well made and clean quad. 6437

sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2011
Bouteille et quelle bonne surprise venant de cette brasserie brugeoise. De couleur rousse/cuivre, elle offre une mousse épaisse beige; Arôme subtile de malt, sucre candi et fruité la place très haute dans mes favorites du style. Ce nez fruité est profond allant vers la prune avec peut-être de la pomme? Au palais, elle présente toutes les bonnes caractéristiques d’une quad, mélangeant parfaitement sucre candi, malt pale et caramel ainsi que des fruits noirs laissant une fine couche d’amertume qui se fond à merveille avec un niveau d’alcool qui est bien présent sans pour cela prendre totalement le dessus.
