4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Silky black. Pillowy light tan foam. Potent aromas of strawberry jam, grape, chocolate and espresso. Uncommon richness, length and texture. Begins very sweet, but dries out into the finish. Excellent flavor intensity. Milk chocolate, red ripe fruit, espresso. Finish is very long lasting. Minutes after swallowing, you still taste the coffee. My third bottle. Really like this beer and it’s super young now, it should only get better. Struise beers are the best Belgians to age.

Thanks to KBL at Osaka bottle share for the chance to try this.
It was very dark with a swirling low tan head, the deep rich aroma with a taste that was full and rich, notes of oak, chocolate, coffee, vanilla. Really smooth an warming, the alcohol was noticeable but more warming in the throat than in the flavour. Delicious.

Dark brown color, almost black, with a big brown head. Overwhelming aroma with hints of coffee and chocolate. These aroma’s return in the taste, accompagnied by a mixture of vanilla and candy Sugar. The aging on rum barrels doesn’t go unnoticed and elevate the beer to a sublime taste experience. Superb beer!!

Bottle, gusher. Dark brown with tan head. Aroma of dried fruit, caramel, yeast, tiny hint of coffee. Taste is similar, mostly dried fruit and a touch of coffee. Quite disappointing, tastes like a standard Belgian Strong
