is a great beer. Dark color and abundant and persistent foam. The nose initially looks like a chocolate English and then give off hints of caramel and dried fruit, figs and banana, spices and coffee. The taste is sumptuous, with a tendency sweet balanced by a good acidity. The finish is long with a slight predominance of alcohol.

Essa Belgian Strong Ale belga tem espuma pequena, aerada e esbranquiçada, de reduzida longevidade. Moderada formação de colarinho. Corpo opaco, denso e marrom-ambarizado. Aroma: uva-passa, malte, álcool e madeira. Sabor inicial: moderado dulçor maltado e leve acidez. Sabor final: moderados dulçor e acidez; longa duração. Paladar: corpo médio-leve, textura aguada, forte carbonatação e final levemente adstringente. A acidez surgiu, para mim, como grande defeito (tal característica apareceu na Pannepot Reserva, mas não com a característica azeda desagradável, mas sim lembrando amoras frescas; este fato a faz infinitamente pior que a Reserva). Notei também uva-passa no paladar. Em termos gerais, essa cerveja foi uma grande decepção em relaçãoao que eu esperava. 20s

On tap @ ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Dark brown color, nice beige head. Smells little sweet. Sweet taste, little bitterness. Can’t remember if the one from the bottle had same bitterness. Great beer.

33cl bottle at home. Very dark brown with a small off-white head which didn’t last long. Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Sweet with some spicy bitter tones. Prunes, caramel, raisins, spices, dried fruits and warming alcohol. A great complex beer with a very rich palet of tastes.

33cl in a Trappist glass. Pours a very dark brown with very little light being able to travel through it. The head is nice and thick but does not last too long. Flavour - Where to start? The amount of flavours crammed into this beer is very impressive. Prunes, dates, spices, candy and yeast being the more obvious. Unfortunately, some examples I have tried have taken on the taste of vegetable extract but certainly not all. In my experience the 2013 beers have been better than 2012. The mouthfeel is otherworldly and almost creamy. Extremely nourishing and unique. Excellent

Great beer. Poured a dark brown, almost black. Off White two finger head. Aroma of caramel, molasses and figgy plums. A hint of a spice. The taste was pure delight. Caramel, burnt sugar, molasses, plums, figs, vinous notes. Maybe some other non descript dark fruits. Sweet, no hint of the alcohol. Slight hint of some "spices" that seem to have reserved themselves to currently being pleasant. This beer was great and it was a 2011 vintage. The body was tremendous as well. The only De Struise beer we get locally!

2012 vintage, into Struise tulip. Very dark red - black really, sparkling, small light brown head endures. Smell - very yeasty up front. When it settles it’s oversweet caramel, bread dough, metallic. Body - medium, slightly foamy, lowish carbonation. Taste - sweet caramel, red berries, background milky instant coffee. Tart and sour notes in the finish. Nice, but oversweet.

Deep dark black, thin espresso head goes fast. Medium strong malty sweet aroma has licorice, herbs, syrup, raisins. Oily rich palate, soft and round, bit sticky, low carbonation, sweet and slightly bitter, long syrup malty finish. Oily beer is rich in flavor and aroma and will keep your motor running even in those freezing winter nights.
