Pours a cloudy brown with a light colored head that holds well but is meager. Alcholic notes in the nose along with peach syrup... creamy mouthfeel with a boozy syrupy palate and a alcohol tinged finish.

From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Watching John Wick. Although is prettt good, I prefer the flavor and aroma profile of the port version. In any case, a great brew

330ml bottle shared in ’t Klooster, Delft - Another gusher. Hazy amber pour with a huge head that disappears quickly. Aroma of orange, candy, slight oak, and yeast. Fairly sweet up front, with candy sugar, sweet malts, orange, yeast, and raisin picked out over the heavy smoky booziness.

fkoolen (826) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2016 Bottle at home, 2013 ed. Massive gusher. Nice cloudy reddish orange colour, beige head. Fruity nose, mildly milky sour, vanilla. Taste is fruity and sweet too with banana, ripe fruits, vanilla, mildly tard taste too, soft bourbon. Lively carbonation, good body. Not too memorable, in fact a bit of a letdown for Struise standards.

NordicV (1773) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2016
Brunorange lätt disig öl med ett beige livligt skum. Doft och smak av torkad frukt, framförallt russin. Lättare alkoholsötma med dragning t bourbon. En väldigt god öl men just bourbonlagringen märks inte så mycket. Årgång 2013.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with nice off white head. Nose and taste is Belgian spice, candy sugar and dark fruit. Good.

JorgeLee (1639) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
Bottle from the Struise shop in Bruges. Brown colour, hints of red. Fizzy but vanishing head. Classic strong Belgian, boozy, dark fruit, spicy. Barrels add some sweetness maybe, hint of tannin. Ageing nicely executed but not really game changing. Certainly not one of those over the top grim oak fests. Decent.

mahamoti (21) - ITALY - APR 2, 2016
Aroma di uva e barboun. Ambrato carico, corpo pieno, schiuma scarsa in stile. In bocca frutta secca, uva, barboun, calore. Eccellente prodotto.

Achel (338) - Ioannina, GREECE - MAR 25, 2016
Hazy deep orange colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty and also has some spices and yeast with wooden hints. Flavour is fruits, spices, wood and quite strong alcoholic notes. When the yeast is poured in, some of the alcohol notes go more mellow.

De Vintage 2011 geproefd. Donker amberkleurig bier met weinig schuim. Geur: honing, abrikoos. Smaak: rozijnen, alcoholisch, zoet, lomp. Geen koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: karton.
