3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
15th March 2015
Almost opaque dark brown beer, small tan head. Palate is viscous and quite silky but still has good fine carbonation. Rich dark malts, soft and thick. A bit of coffee liqueur and dark chocolate liqueur. Trace of marmite. Spice. Very mild wood. A little blackcurrant and surpressed red berry fruits. Malt cream before a smooth and slightly spicy finish. Impressively drinkable for a 22% beer. I remain frustrated with Struise, they appear to have retreated from most of Europe and the few beers that do make their way out are nothing like as good as this.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at 17th Kerstbierfest at Essen, rated in English. Syrrupy stuff, as black as Urbain’s soul. ;-) variegated brown head with great retention. Aroma of chocolate covered biscuits, licorice, vanilla, burnt espresso. Taste is straightforward alcohol and coffee. Boozy compared to other dark twists from Struise.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Looking just gorgeous, a dense, finger-thick, light tan head sits on top of a black body, releasing aromas of roasted malts, dried fruits, something sugary, a hint of vanilla, some licorice and a quite pleasant alcohol scent. A bit too warming maybe, both in the nose and the mouth, but it’s not extreme in any way, almost making me suspicious of the claimed 22% ABV. Roasted malts and sweetness, some dried fruits and licorice, and a touch of vanilla in the flavor, with a pleasant bitterness showing up after a while, combating with alcohol and sweetness for attention. Full body, as expected. Certainly a beer worth drinking, but it’s also a beer you should share, no matter what the bottle size is. 120511
