Bottle pour for the 4th Annual LA Beer Week Beer Festival at Union Station in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, caramel, and some slight spice aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

I don't travel to Brazil to taste beers that I can taste in California, but because I had never tasted Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel and it was offered by Sergio, I was cool to end the night with half of the bottle. On to the beer:

Dark brown color with a velvety head and a good level of lacing. The nose is strong yet not too powerful. Many different aromas are found, including dates, sugar, grass, prunes, and fruit snacks.

Brown sugar is the first flavor to be recognized. Immediately after that, a rush of various fruit skins, dried fruit, apricot, and a dash of pepper create a complex personality in this quad. The body is nearly full, with the alcohol inserted favorably well. A fruity aftertaste lingers after the pepper sensation dies off.

The tripel was a good one, and now the quadrupel is a good one. That's two very respectable showing from Straffe Hendrik.

Poured a brownish body with two finger tan head and a little lace. The aroma is a good mix of typical Belgian yeast and orange along with a touch of sugar and and breadiness, with possible caramel and breadiness as well. Medium-bodied with a very slight sticky touch, the beer has a sharp carbonation and peppery spice edge that adds balance and gives a crisp finish (vanilla?). The taste is moderately sweet, with some candi sugar like malt along with toffee or caramel or bitter cocoa and a chewey breadiness, as well as having some fruit flavors beyond citric/orange like touches of dark fruit like figs or black cherry. A textbook quad with great balance and a mix of fruit and sweet flavors that is a quality example of the style that hides the alcohol well.

750 ml bottle shared by Lunch, thanks! Never had it and I'm always interested in trying a new beer whenever possible.

Beer is brown and hazy with a nice head of tan bubbles, moderate retention, moderate carbonation, looks good.

Aroma is yeasty / bready with some great overtones of grain and sugar / caramel.

Beer is sweet and medium in body, nice finish, mildly bitter, a little roast in this one, I enjoyed this beer a lot and would have it again.
