The Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel (also known as Straffe Hendrik Bruges Quadrupel Ale 11°) is a Quadrupel brewed by Brouwerij De Halve Maan. For the purposes of this review, the quad was served in a snifter from bottle.
The ale pours a mahogany hue and is topped by a thick, foamy, cream-colored head.
The aroma is spicy, slightly sweet and roasted.
The palate consists of sweet flavors of dark fruits, chocolate, and is balanced by nut, coffee; spiced with coriander.
Rich, full-bodied mouthfeel with a moderate amount of carbonation.
Overall, the Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel is a highly enjoyable Belgian Quad.
Brouwerij De Halve Maan recommends the chocolate as a food pairing with its Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel.
