UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 Interesting color: kind of red/orange/brown/yellow, nice white/reddish head. The taste is also very interesting: it is very very balanced. It doesn’t have the amount of bitterness and carbonation you would expect in this style, which I really like. Combine this with the full bodied, yet not overpowering, sweetness, and you have a very great beer!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Aroma di uva e barboun. Ambrato carico, corpo pieno, schiuma scarsa in stile. In bocca frutta secca, uva, barboun, calore. Eccellente prodotto.

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.
