330ml bottle from Struise Beer Store in Brugge - Perfect looking jet black body, robust and lasting beige frothy topper. Nose is a bit more delicate than I was expecting, liquorice, dark chocolate, boozed up cake fruits, but all in a lighter fashion than anticipated. The taste is dominated by a boozy warmth, not too strong to overpower the layers of complex flavours, with fruits, liquorice, and espresso coffee allowed to come through. Not the best Struise I’ve had, but there are loads of brewers who can only dream of bottling something like this.

Bottle. Pours a thick black with a brownish head. Aroma of chocolate and Port wine. Taste of chocolate, coffee, liquorice, oak and some alcohol at the end. Very nice blend. Sweety beer for enjoying without hurries.

@Antwaerps Bierhuyske, Als je nu als Hollander dit bier besteld, wel even op letten om het uit te spreken in het Frans (Kabért), anders kan het even duren eer de barkeeper begrijpt welk bier je nu wilt hebben ;). anyway, de looks zijn fantastisch, mooi donker bruin/zwart bier met zeer volle bruine kraag, aroma’s zijn ook heerlijk, de port barrel aged komt er lekker doorheen, geroosterde en gebrande mouten, donkere chocolade, vanille, zoals gezegd, port. Smaken zijn ook erg goed, chocolade, moutig, zoet. heerlijk romig in de mond, volle body. Lekker spul maken de mannen van Struise toch (bijna) elke keer weer.

(Bottle, Antwaerps Bierhuyske, Antwerpen, 24 Oct 2013) Black colour with dense, brown head. Malty, roasted nose with dark chocolate, black coffee, oak wood, liquorice, soy sauce and hints of red fruit. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dark chocolate, black coffee, anise, oak wood, hints of port wine and a generous spicy bitterness in the finish. Full body, with a certain sweetness coming through. Quite powerful and very tasty. Excellent beer.

javiercrasher (160) - Granada, SPAIN - NOV 1, 2013
Cerveza de un color negro intenso, opaco, con una buena capa de espuma marrón, cremosa y muy duradera. En nariz se aprecian notas de cacao, café, matices licorosos, vainilla y maltas torrefactas. En la boca es sedosa, cremosa, se deja notar el alcohol, entra amarga, con notas torrefactas y de café, al final del trago se manifiestan matices de cacao y chocolate. Presenta un cuerpo entero, carbonatación media y final largo e intenso con retrogusto a cacao. Russian Imperial Stout cremosa, licorosa, con notas de cacao, café y torrefactos. @http://humuluslupulus.net/

0,33l fles gedeeld met bryanvdv. Donker bruin tot zwart bier met Bruin schuim. Explosie van geuren cacao brood en rode wijn. Wat een body, de poort sluit echt goed aan bij de imperia stout. Met een mooie bittere afdronk
