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.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a hazy, reddish brown with a dense off-white head. Rather sophisticated aroma, clearly oaky but also with a herbal balsamico tint to it. Rich body, interesting base of overripe fruit, oak, spices and then again the slight tartness. Hardly any bitterness. Different. 131212
