butelka, kufle i kapsle. na szybko: duzo mniej zlozone i gesto-lepkie niz odtwarzana z pamieci wersja z beczki po burbonie. sporo jasnych owocow, sporo nut slodowych, nieco jakichs cukrowych klimatow. alkohol ladnie schowany, to co czuc faktycznie a la porto. nieco syropowe. w odroznieniu od wiekszosci: wole wersje port

I really liked this beer a lot. Pours a dark amber color with a frothy white head. Nice aromas of dark fruit, caramel, toffee, wood and a tinge of alcohol. Tastes more of the same with a nice balance between the fruity tones and malty sweetness. Medium bodied.

Bottle shared, thanks Mark. Sweet caramel, notes of dark cherry, cake, bit of oak, dry finish with hints of booze. Decent brew but quite mild overall, doesnít really live up to the hype, maybe past its prime.

2013 Vintage. Poured into a taster showing moderately filtered caramel brown with light sparse white foam.
The nose shows caramel and tea.
The palate shows high carbonation and a moderate sweetness with lightly tart notes in between and slightly tannic.

2013 vintage bottle shared. Thanks Jon! Dark fruit, honey, molasses and cinnamon aromas. Sweet on the palate with some light fruit tartness. Port-like in the finish. Dry and dark fruit forward. Nice.

2013 bottle. Brown hazy pour with beige head. Spice, port, yeast, dark plum like fruit aromas. Dark plum like fruits, yeast, light barrel and I guess port notes, beer really melds well.

Hazy amber color. Very sweet nose with honey, band aid and a bit of port. Slightly sour. Not that great, but ok finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber reddish beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is fortified and malty, and the flavour is very malty with a port like quality and some heavy bitterness. Overall a nice strongly flavoured Belgian beer.

Struise beer in Struise glass: itís been a long, long time. Bottle off the in laws for Christmas. 2013 version. 317 calories a bottle- bonus point for the info. Only a sliver of cake or a 20min trot, innit? Pours high and excitable bronze with a pocked off white foam. Aroma of meat juices, perfumed crushed seeds out of the curry drawer, caraway, cocoa dusted plum, strawberry chew as it warms, bathfoam and creamy fig. Silken mouthfeel despite the fizz, minimal alcohol smoothed over with sugar, subtle ingratiating stone fruit robed in toffee. The aroma edges the flavour which is too smooth for its own good; all yeast, plump mallow body and muscovado. I donít know..the kind of beer that got me into beer and it feels heretical and ungrateful to say it, but itís kind of bland.
