Clear light brown with fast vanishing head. Caramel, bourbon, wood cask. Sweet with a dry and light sour finish. A very good siruppy sipper.

mgajdaczewa (1129) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 26, 2015
W aromacie cudowna belgijska brzoskwinia, wyraźna pieprzność, pikantność od drożdży, nuty dębiny i bourbonu świetnie się komponują, do pełni szczęścia brakuje wanilin, te są, lecz śladowe. W smaku pełne, słodowe z belgijskim brzoskwiniowym sznytem, drożdzowe nuty pikantne, bourbon, nieco dębiny. Świetne piwo!

VastActiv (4231) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Bottle 0.33l at Stadin Panimobaari, Helsinki. Colour is deep orange with very small white head. Aromas and flavours: Some fruits, candies, dryness, some wood and malts. This is very strange.

matbli (157) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle 330ml, very strong gashing - at least 1/4 of the bottle were lost. Pours cloudy dark amber with strong and pillowy white head that remain for a very long time. Aroma of cherries, vanilla, raisin, toast, caramel and wood. High sweetness in foreground dominates the taste, in the background light bitterness with some sourness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied but all in all quite flat for that high abv. Drinkable but I expected more.

Icedwarf (916) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2015
Roodbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoet en krachtig, fruitig abrikoos, en aardbei. Helaas is de Bourbon smaak niet zo mijn ding vandaar de wat lagere rating, echter dit doet niets af aan de kwaliteit van dit bier.

martjoobolut (1905) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 1, 2015
0,33L bottle, 2013 vintage (from beergium.com). Pours brown with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, malty, fruity, very spicy, and some sour notes with touch of bourbon. Flavor is very sweet, malt, christmas spices, some notes of barrel, but not that much bourbon. Finish is sweet and dry bitter with spices and some notes of alcohol. Overall: very nice brew.

Lele (278) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 29, 2015
Birra memorabile. Il colore è ambrato, dalla schiuma giallognola, fine e persistente. All’aroma si avverte del caramello, liquoroso, speziato, legnoso vecchio. Aroma intenso e che invoglia subito alla bevuta. In bocca da il meglio di sè. Si presentano gli stessi sapori che al naso, con aggiunta di marzapane, fruttato e un leggerissimo amarognolo che chiude in finale e che bilancia bene la birra. Ancora una volta il Struise ha fatto centro!

fletchfighters (1298) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2015
330 ml bottle Orange amber color, bright white head. Good strips of lacing and retention to the head. Nose is bubble gum, candied sugar, spices and faint oak. Taste is slightly syrupy. Lots of bubble gum and candied sugar. Some coriander, nutmeg, and spice but a pretty straightforward taste. Just some hints of oak and bourbon. Sweet and sticky. No hint of ABV. Maybe to sticky and sweet for me though.

Beardbeerman (283) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Pours a hazy caramel topped by a finger of creamt tanned head showing great lacing and retention. The nose is spicy with, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, toffee and a hint of bubblegum. The tastes is sweet toffee, earthy hops, ginger, nutty malts, cloves and nutmeg. The brew is full-bodied and has a medium bitterness that sticks around with the spice. Cheers!
