Habanero (2755) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2013
Bottled. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of slightly roasted malt, caramel, some dark fruit and wood. Sweet flarvor that ends up dry, tart and bitter too. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. A nice and quite interesing impy.

Bottle. Pours mostly black but has a red tint. Huge beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and white wine. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee, dark fruits, vanilla, licorice and white wine flavours. Full body and medium carbonation. Has a long sour aftertaste...the barrel aging Iím guessing. Well, itís not bad, but itís not super either. I donít think the white wine barrel aging is doing it any favours. This was Ä14 and I can get 3 bottles of Black Albert (which is better) for the same price, so I wonít be getting this one again.

A good sour stout. Roast aroma, licorice, white wine barreling in the finish. A sipper. Black with off white head. Thanks for sharing, Pino.

Opaque black - brown beer with a big fluffy tan head. Light palate, crisp and semi dry. Somewhat left field this beer - a juxtaposition of dark malt with a trace of roast and creamy white wine! Trace of wood, Finishes slightly spicy with woody bitterness and bitter linger. Unusual beer, just about hangs together and has an overall ídark lambicí vibe.

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

17/VIII/13 - 50cl bottle @ 4de Gents Bierfestival - BB: n/a (2013-784)

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.
