COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Straffe Hendrik Heritage is a special variety of the Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel, as it a one year oak barrel aged beer. The beer is brewed in autum and is only available in a limited edition. The taste and fragrance of the beer are very complex and evolve through the years. The tannin from the barrels blends exquisitely with the special malts in the beer. The combination of the spiciness and bitterness of the quadrupel with the subtle taste of wine and wood from the barrels is inimitable. Licorice and dark fruits like raisins, prunes and figs can also be discovered. With age the beer will develop a hint of porto as well. Note: Cognac and/or Burgundy Barrels.

Ysok02 (1827) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2017
Robe brune presque noire, belle mousse crémeuse, noisette, persistante. Nez puissant et complexe sur des notes de café au lait, de noisette, de praliné sur un fond boisé vanillé, un coté fruits secs et figue à l’aération, de la richesse tout en restant élégant. Bouche à l’attaque souple avec un coté vineux, tout en gardant de la rondeur, des notes chocolatées, une bulle élégante, de la fraîcheur et une finale longue et acidulée. Une des plus belle réussite de l’élevage en fûts d’une quadruple. Très grande bière qui pourra évoluer de nombreuses années

alteregoo (1738) - Kalisz, POLAND - APR 23, 2017
Piana dość obfita, ale szybko redukuje się do chmurki. Barwa rubinowa, klarowna. W aromacie sporo nutek winnych, czerwonych owoców, ciemnego winogrono, do tego rodzynki, karmel, w tle nawet odrobina wanilii, drewna, porto. W smaku bardzo kompleksowe, z jednej strony pełne, słodkie, melasowo karmelowe z suszonymi i kandyzowanymi owocami, z drugiej lekko kwaskowe, winne, taniczne z wiśniami i migdałami. Goryczka nieduża, pestkowo ziołowa, lekko pikantna. Średnie wysycenie, średnia gęstość, rozgrzewający alkohol.
Zaskakująco złożony i deserowy w odbiorze trunek, znacznie bardziej szlachetny, ułożony, wzbogacony od wersji podstawowej. Przy zachowaniu pełni, słodowości i quadruplowej słodyczy piwo straciło dość agresywną goryczkę, zyskało winne i taniczne posmaki z beczki, dodatkowo doszły przyjemne akcenty z utlenienia. Klasa!

Frudel (253) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2017
Vintage 2012 Bottle No.15495. Dark brown with reddish reflection combed with a fluffy, creamy beige head. Aromas of caramel toasted malt, woody notes, dark dried fruits, little spice, hint of vanilla. Medium to high sweetness, not too bitter just perfectly balanced, full body, despite the 11% this quad has a high drinkability with a very long pleasant aftertaste, hint of warm alcohol feeling going down the throat at the end as well. Sublime beer

Rune (13503) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 15, 2017
750ml bottle no.15942, vintage 2013, bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes, thanks to Frank for the reservation. Low, fawn-coloured head over a cloudy brown body with a rustic tint. Clingy lacing. Inviting aroma of oak vanilla and dried fruits. Well built taste profile of raisin, dark berries, dates, prunes and oak. Backbone of warming alcohol to the aroma and flavour. Good depth. Lovely, just a tad too sweet in the long run (Tromsø, Good Friday sipper 14.04.2017).
