4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Beautiful aroma of sweet dry fruits and a hint of alcohol. Deep amber-brown in color with a small tan head. Extremely smooth drinking, with outstanding balance. Nice moderate sweetness with a great subtle hop balance. Not particularly spicey, just smooth off the barrel and good!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl, 2011 Vintage shared at Thanksgiving 2015. Ruby-shoesole brown pour, still well alive and even fizzy despite its age. Strong, rumtopfed fruit aroma of Schladerer Zwetschge, prune marmelade, cassonade and residual chocolate. Very dry and wood-matured mouthfeel, allowing prune essence more than sweetness to shine. Drinks pretty yeast-refined and consumate, at its estimated peak of 4 years - although I prefer some more mouthfeel from my Struise digestifs.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from 2013. Hazy deep reddish brown, big beige compact foam, dissipates fairly quick leaving some lacings. Aroma is fairly complex, coffee beans, roasted malt, semi sweet with vanilla and cookies, minor fruit/raspberries. Taste is evidently more sweet than the aroma suggested, but not less complex, with vanilla, plums, muscovado sugar, malt, some kind of herbish touch in between, finish is roasted with sugar and raspberries. Oily texture. Big body, low carbo. One word: Lovely!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle from Struise shop, Brügge. Pours close to clear, dark brown with a somewhat modest beige head. Malty aroma with dried dark fruits, notes of oak and ripe, dark plums, caramel and hints of vanilla and alcohol. Sweet, flavourful, smooth and very well balanced. Not as complex as Pannepot, but yet another high alcohol and very well crafted beer from Struise. Just dangerously drinkable.
