Poured from a bomber to a pint glass. Nice head, doesn't dissipate, with a nice copper color. Smells of dark fruit and heavy malt. It tastes sweet with a nice dry yet tasty finish. You really taste the malt with a touch of raisins and dark fruit. The feel is smooth and perfectly carbonated. Overall a great brew with lots of flavor and balance. I will for sure pick this up again.

Straffe Hendrik Quad

Pours a dark brown, off white head forms and fades. Aroma of nutty, toasted malt, sweet dark fruits and doughy bread. In the flavor, raisen, fig, toasted almond and caramel. Smooth on the palate and the alcohol is only barely noticeable. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, clean enough finish and semi dry at that. Overall, a very solid quad with great traditional flavor. Without a doubt this is one worth revisiting.

A nice brown body covered with a thick, sticky, brown head; Good lacing down the sides of the glass. Smell emits dates, currants, figs, molasses, brown sugar. Malt sugars and dark fruit tastes strongly bind with a deep yet relatively mild alcohol warmth. Some chocolate notes buried deep along with a soft bitterness. Medium bodied, juicy and clean.

A nicely made rich and complex beer. Liquid dark bread...

330ml bottle served in a Trappist chalice.

A: Pours a nice deep brown color forming a huge creamy fluffy tan head. Very good retention and many lacings left. A nice creamy layer remains forever

S: Very malty and yeasty with notes of alcohol. Dark fruits like plums and raisins. Caramel and candy sugar. Classic Belgian yeasts

T: Follows the nose. A classic Belgian Quad, very creamy and molasses. Very bready too. Strong notes of caramel, caramel malts, dark fruits and Belgian yeasts. End is quite bitter with notes of flowery hope. Balanced bittersweet combination

M: Heavy creamy molasses body with good carbonation. Bittersweet Belgian style aftertaste

O: Great Quad. Excellent beer. Recommend

Ok, after my soup and Zot Dubbel at the Halve Maan on 28SEP11, I opted for a 0.33l bottle of the Quad for "dessert", at €4.00. Good choice!

I filled my glass with a deep, deep dark brown liquid, opaque even to backlighting. A creamy, short beige head layered things up top, lasting well and lacing nicely. Aroma was a tad restrained, yet dark fruit was noticeable here. Though the bier felt a touch airy on the tongue, it still had a solid medium body.

Flavorwise, it started dry right off. Subtle choco malts with light sweetness melded with dark fruit, more as the quad warmed. Had no real bitterness pe se, and could be more complex, but it was still damn tasty. Zum Wohl!!
