500ml bottle bought at the Old School. Such a nice one!. Roasty, caramel, some sourness. Delicious. Smells much better with temperature.

Pretty cloudy dark brown beer, practically no head. aroma: pretty fruity, bit sourish, wood, wine most, caramel, overripe banana, bit dirty. MF no carbon, medium to full body. Taste: bit sugary start, caramel, pretty sour, red wine, mocha, coffee, cocoa powder. Aftertaste: overripe fruits, sourish, red wine, tannins, pretty bitter. Not my favorite Struise, this one...

Nice, but I expected a little more from Struise. The white wine was a little hard to notice, maybe because the dominance of the imperial stout is no match for the more subtle notes of most white wines. Still a good experiment though.

Bottle from the brewery tap in Oostvleteren. Warned by the brewer: this beer is eager to get out of the bottle. After the beige foam has settled, what remains is a dark brown beer. Nice vinous and fruity aroma. Hints of wood and sour fruit in the mouth as well as marcipane and almonds. Seriously good.

shoulderbroken (2114) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle from the Struise shop. Dark brown, small golden bubbly head. Aroma is pineapple, roasty sweet and funky. Booze and sugar. Taste is lovely, roasty, bit of coffee, lots of roast and something weird. Nice funkiness from the barrel I guess. Really liked this, probably should have drunk it earlier in the evening to properly appreciate it.

Picked this up at Dranken Geers, Oostakker, nr Gent. Consumed at home in company of Casey, Traci & Loz 08.07.13 Pours dark brown large mid brown head. Dark sugar, sourness & little soot merge to form a great nose. Soft in the mouth, tastes boozy, some sweet liquorice, real tangy in fact loads of liquorice, sharp fruity edge. Starts to dry the mouth out.I like the soft chewy bubbles, carbonation is great. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

ej (753) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2013
Huge fluffy head, tan colored on a opaque, black body. Grapes and raisins in the nose with a healthy dose of tar, leather, liquorice and hints of oak. Texture is creamy and nice. Taste is liquorice and bitter chocolate with a fruity aftertaste blending with some vinous, alchoholic notes as well. A strong and tasty brew from De Struise yet again!

Bottle. Pours dark brown with big head -- gusher. Nose of burnt toffee, sour wine. Taste of burnt coffee, toffee, sour fruit. Weird.
