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.
