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.

750ml bottle picked up at Surdyks and consumed with commonshawn. Its an emotional moment as this is the celebration of RateBeer 1,000. Hard to believe weve finally arrived at this milestone. Moeder Lambic glass acting as the perfect consumption vessel. A deep, murky reddish brown color...maybe even caramel. Nose has a heavy sweetness with plums, raisins, and a lead in to a big alcohol presence to come. The taste is heavy on dark fruit as well with a plum/raisin/maybe cherry quality. Caramel and malty backbone that isnt content to simply linger in the background. Mouthfeel is pretty thick and has a bready feel to it. There is an ever present sweetness. The second glass of the large share bottle seems to have a bit more character to the mouthfeel...almost more vibrant and assertive. The alcohol warmth is obvious and it doesnt hide from its high ABV. A great choice for #1,000 and the perfect setting to consume...one of the best quads available.

piwnepodroze (479) - POLAND - OCT 14, 2016
Piwo jest ciemnomiedziane i sprawia wrażenie bardzo gęstego. W zapachu prym wiodą suszone ciemne owoce oraz nuty kojarzące się z brązowym cukrem i orzechami. W tle pozostaje słodowa chlebowość oraz czekolada. Smak uzupełnia poezję aromatu - jest to ciężkie, złożone i słabo wysycone piwo. Rodzynkowo-czekoladowy smak rozgrzewa, a alkohol pozostaje jedynie nutą i nie dominuje odczuć. Za sprawą lekkich drewnianych posmakw skojarzył mi się z koniakiem. Generalnie jest słodkawe i owocowe, i mimo wszystko pijalne jak cholera. No ale umwmy się - to mj ulubiony styl piwa. Można brać w ciemno.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2017 Bottle. Color: Dark ruby, thick frothy beige head. Taste: Pretty sweet, combined with well balanced notes of the roasted malts, raisins, coffee and brown sugar. Hints of caramel. Rich palate, medium to full body. Low carbonation. Very nice beer.

dabeerguy (17) - Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2011
Very dark beer with a lively light colored head when poured from the 11.2 bottle. Aroma of sweet fresh fruits like cherry and plum, malt, caramel & slight chocolate / coffe. Taste is huge full of caramel, fresh bread, currents, figs, cocoa, coffe and reasted malt. Finished with a long lasting almost smokey sweetness. Would pair well with spicy dishes and cant wait to braise lamb in it.
