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.

ej (681) - 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!
