Surprisingly dark for the style (drunk in a Belgian Strong Dark beer tasting). Astringent quality from the dark malt with notes of liquorice and spices. Intense and full body. Very good.

Flavors are bread, dried fruits, cherries, plum, dates, dark chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, toffee, licorice, tobacco and spices with vinous and slight oxidized notes. Pleasant alcohol warmth. Full body, bright light carbonation, creamy and sticky texture. Delicious.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The "Fisherman’s Ale". Not Struise’s first, but the beer with which they first attracted international attention. A wonderfully complex and rich, profound brew, dark bronze colour, hazy, creamy head, very fruity and deeply malty profile, candi sugar, complex with pleasant drying spicy notes, elegant yeastiness and characterful hop bitterishness in the finish along with warming, liqueurish alcohol. Very agreeable, a great beer indeed.

In tap (2013) while in Brugges; great beer ... pours a very dark brown/black. Aroma somewhat of cocoa and brown sugar, finishing with a little plum. The 10% alcohol is very well hidden. A very good beer, and I will absolutely buy again
