Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a large white head with good lace over a hazy golden body. Aroma of brandy, alcohol, grapes, caramel and an odd "smoothness"...something I cannot describe. Taste is alcohol, earthy, very dry, chalky, vanilla, pear, dried apricot, stone fruit. Very attenuated with creamy carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a cloudy deep amber with a solid and creamy off-white head leaving a neat lacework. Intense fruity aroma with lots of esters and some phenols. Medium body, fruit, yeast and an edge of cough syrup - a little caramel also. Rather hoppy finish where the alcohol also becomes rather evident. Not a bad beer at all but not as complex as the best from Struise. 121109
