@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.

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

TET (1442) - FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Vintage 2011, BBE 2017. A black beer with a beautiful, dense, big and slightly yellowish brown head. The nose of sweet strawberries, roastiness and liquirice. The nice and fresh aroma, basicly, a simple, but very succesfully. Taste is strongly roasted, lots of black coffee, some strawberries, also quite high bitterness, nice sweetness, thus not very dry. Full bodied, smooth to drink. Very enjoyable beer, the strawberries are refreshning the powerfull flavours.

Bottle with sjouw. Zeer donker bier, bijna geen schuim. Aroma van Laurier, koffie, caramel tonen. In de smaak bitter, koffie. Heerlijke russian stout.

Steasy66 (807) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle from bitter virtue. Black with tiny tan head. Aroma is really tannic, the Port features huge in the nose. Flavor and texture opens extremely smooth, progresses to a boozy tannic finish. Smooth and drinkable beer but not a lot going on. Lack the body and the roast to hold up to the barrels.

Bottle generously shared by Colin for rating number 1600. Sweet port aromas. Dark brown pour with a light brown head. Dark roasted malts, mild chocolate, caramel, vanilla, oak, and mild port notes. Uber complex. Good body and mouthfeel. Simply delicious...
