Additional information:

Straffe Hednrik Quadrupel is still a quite recent beer, but nonetheless it has already won numerous prizes. In 2013 it won the silver medal at the European Beer Star in the category ‘Belgian Style-Strong Ale’. It is generally considered to be one of Belgium’s very best dark strong beers.

This beer is brewed at Brewery De Halve Maan. Until recently this was the only active brewery within the city walls of the historical city of Brugge (also known as Bruges). The brewing history of the brewery dates back to as far as 1564, but their flagship beers Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel and Straffe Hendrik Tripel are quite recent. They were launched in their current form in 2008 and proved an almost instant success, in Belgium as well as abroad.

All beers are shipped in professional, DHL-approved, triple-walled cardboard boxes, where all bottles are separated from each other to prevent them from hitting against each other during transport
First of all, you should bear in mind that during transport the bottles might have been thrown around quite a bit and that it’s not a good idea to drink them immediately. We advise you to let the bottles rest in an upright position in a dark and cool place for at least 48 hours. This will allow the yeast to sink to the bottom of the bottle again, and it will also prevent an outburst of foam when you open them. Beers are best kept in an upright position (to make sure the yeast residue remains at the bottom) and in a dark and cool a cool place. (The ideal temperature is 10-12°C (50-55°F) and it is also important the temperature remains as stable as possible.) It is best to drink all beers before the expiry date mentioned on the bottle.  Some brewers, however, mention the bottling date rather than the expiry date on their bottles.

Pours very dark almost black into the glass with a big off white head that lingers to the last drop.Alcohol and malty sweetness on the nose.The taste is of molasses,caramel,ripe plums and perhaps a hint of liquorice somewhere in the depth.Initially sweet it tapers off with some slight bitterness at the finish.This beer is so well balanced.Another delightful Belgian beer and highly recommended.
